Some of My Poems

These are a few poems of written recently. If you decide to read them I'd like to know what you think of them. :)



Your Light

Light and dark you think it is plain to see
But in the darkness I have seen a light
Not the true light as bright as the sun
One that shines down a path of pain and misery
You think you are doing right
You think you are having fun
It is all an illusion
But you ask me how I know

Cause I used to live in the darkness
Surrounded by everlasting night
Longing to see the day I have never fully seen
Never understanding why this worlds so full of hate
Why try to understand what you can not see
Evil lurks in the shadows that in the dark you can not find
Only in the light do you have the right of mind
To look out on the world and see what you have left behind

The day I saw that blinding light I heard Your loving words
“Come and let Me hold you tight and take your cares away
For if you live within My grace you will never worry another day
I sent My son to die for you and He has taken all your sins
Now let me be your Father for I love and care for you
I will always be watching over and let no harm fall on you
Cause you have always been My child long before you knew”

Ever since that Blessed day that I came to know who you are
You have always been close by my side
I try not to stray to far
Some days I find it hard to fight
This world that seems to be against me
Then I think of You and all that You have given
How you came to this earth and gave your life for mine
It makes me want to live my life
And worship you all my days

Although I know You deserve much more than I can give
I know what I can give is enough for You
I will rest in Your love and hold fast to You
For I know that Your words are nothing but true
I stepped out of the darkness and away from the night
Now I know who You are living in the light

God and Father help me to be more as you are
And sing Your praises of Your glory
So that all the world will know Your Lord


Losing and Finding Myself


It’s days like these I find myself wondering
How I could’ve been so wrong
So lost and so far gone
That I find myself running from You

And I ask myself
Will You still want me
After all I’ve said
And, after all I’ve done
Will You still take me back

I’m tired of running, I’m tired of hiding, and I’m tired of fighting with you
I don’t want to be lonely no more
I just want to know you more
To be surrounded by Your perfect love and grace

And I ask myself
Will You still want me
After all I’ve said
And, after all I’ve done
Will You still take me back

How could You love me
How could You love me so much, that you forgave my sins
You made me brand new
Everywhere I look I now see Your creation
Your loving plan of salvation

And I ask myself
Will You still want me
After all I’ve said
And, after all I’ve done
Will You still take me back

So I cry to You, my God
I cry to you for help
Lord, please take my life and show me Your unfailing love
For only you, my God, can save me from this world
From the heartache and the pain

And I ask myself
Will You still want me
After all I’ve said
And, after all I’ve done
Will You still take me back

I’m left with no more worries
I’m left with no more doubts
I know that You, my God, love me unconditionally and nothing I could do
And nothing I could say could separate me from the love you gave so freely
I thank you Lord for the rest of my days
I give my life to you and only you, my God



Where I Belong

I've been running for far too long
It's time to stop and find where I belong
To find where I feel loved
To find where the light of the world dwells

I find myself searching for You
I know that when I find you it will be right where I belong
I know it's in Your arms I'll be safe from all the world
From all my hurts and all my fears

To find the truth
To know the way
To live forever in this life and next
All I need is to trust in You and follow Your ways

I've been running for far too long
It's time to stop and find where I belong
To find where I feel loved
To find where the light of the world dwells

Knowing Your grace for me
Knowing of Your great love
Makes me long to know more of You
To know all of You
To give my all to You

God hold me close in Your hands
Help me to see Your loving plans
Help me to see what it is You want me to do
Cause Lord I just want to live for You

I've been running for far too long
It's time to stop and find where I belong
To find where I feel loved
To find where the light of the world dwells

To be here with You Lord for always and forever
To know You and Your loving ways
All I want and all I need is to live a life pleasing to my one and only king

Beautiful poetry!!
I simply loved the "loosing and finding myself"
Putting emotions so beautifully into words is not something everyone can do! Keep up the great work!

I read all of the posts in your blog today, and I liked your poems, even though I don't consider myself a spiritual person.
We have a church much like your rock church here where I live. I go there every now and then on Sundays with my boyfriend and his family. The church is very open and modern, with soft chairs instead of pews and screens where pictures and words to the songs are projected. A live band plays, complete with piano, drums, guitars, and a choir. Sometimes they have guest musicians come play violins and saxophones and such. The praise leader used to be in a punk band, so he really gets into it, and the songs are upbeat and fun. The praise leader does a few prayers and they sing for about half the time until the pastor comes out and gives the sermon.
Another thing I love about the church is that they don't pass around an offering plate or anything like that. They don't even mention donations. If you wish to donate, you can leave your offering in these large urns they have at the back of the church.
I love these types of churches, because they are open and inviting, and they're not boring. The sermons don't damn you to hell for sinning, and you don't feel obligated to give. I hope more of these churches are born, so that people like you and me can learn to enjoy church rather than avoid it.
I noticed that before this post, you hadn't updated your blog in a while. I hope that you will continue to share your life and your poems with us.
(By the way, I loved Sloppy Firsts, and all the others!)
