Well, I guess I'll be the first to post my poem. Very Happy
Here's my entry:





My Box

Hello, my name is Pain, my name is Hurt
My name is Anger, my name is Hidden
My name is Doubt, my name is Fear
I keep you in this box, outside is forbidden.

You see out the hole, the hole in the box
You see what I want you to see, a reality,
A counterfeit reality, of darkness,
Of pain, hurt, anger, brutality.

You stay in this box, with no door,
Though there is, someone to help you out,
But you donít see what I donít want you to see,
I hide from you that one way out, the only route.

The one who can help you, destroy the box,
Destroy me, destroy pain, destroy doubt,
But I do not want you to see this escape, this love,
The love that is knocking, but inside this box,
You cannot hear his shout.
He is crying ďI will set you freeĒ
ďCome now, come with meĒ





.

Okay, here's mine!
2 Timothy 4:7-8 "I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Henceforth there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, will award to me on that Day, and not only to me but also to all who have loved his appearing."

~Victory~

Purpose
They advance
A sea of mighty warriors
With one voice they raise a holy war cry
Each must carry out his own mission
But together they march forward with one goal
Becuase they know Whom they serve
They know for Whom they fight
And they know what is awaiting
Victory

Weakness
They fall
With one swift attack they are fell
The enemy detected their weaknesses
They struggle for the strength to continue
But their own effort is not enough
Becuase they took their eyes off the Captain
They forgot His instructions
And they forgot to Whom to run
Broken

Wounded
They struggle
The blood of battle on their brow
Their gasping breath catching in their throat
They do not know what just happened
There is nothing they can do
But the Captain knew it all the time
Because He saw the enemy attack them
He saw them as they fell
And He knows what to do
Hope

Redemption
They awaken
The Captain is calling
Their eyes look on His pure crimson flag
He heals their ragged wounds
He faithfully sets them on their feet
They have been broken and crushed
But now they fight anew on the Rock eternal
Because they know Whom they serve
They know for Whom they fight
And they know what is awaiting
Victory

Smile Smile Smile

Now I won't mention any names ahem...Aubrey and Foster...but I will say again that I want everyone to at least try and remember you don't have to do it on your own you can always ask for help.

GOD PLEASE
Your Grace:
God, please give me your Grace,
Without it,

Your Love:
God, please give me your love,
To help the needy,
To give to those who take,
To love others as you love me

Your Justice:
God, please give me your justice,
To treat others fairly,
And with love, how you would me


Your Voice:
God, please give me your voice,
To reach out to others,
To tell them of your love,
And to praise you in a loud voice

Sorry itís so short!!! Very Happy

Cost of the Cross
When I'm on the street, calling to the lost.
Giving my all to follow the cross.
I reach out without counting the cost.
Running, and forgetting the things the world calls loss.
Living and learning everyday of my Lord.
And never forgetting the cost of the cross.


I was kinda rushed, but I wanted to enter something. Hope it works!

Micky


Her mane was black and her body dark brown.

I rode her much and gave her ground,

To race with grace all around.

She was much beloved by all that rode.

And rarely gave complaint to the old.

Her heart was big and lovely as gold.

Even though she was often a little bold.

I loved her much, and took pictures as she rolled.

Dirtying the beautiful coat I had just combed.

I will always love Micky, that dark brown horse that allowed me to roam.

Even though every once in a while she caused me to groan.

She is now in heaven with my Lord, with nothing to bemoan.

Micky will forever be in my heart and mind, as I ride on with her daughter, who
is grown.



Another poem I thought of, let me know what you think!
