[Poetry] Coming into Focus

When what’s blurry
Comes into line
You start to hurry
No time to even worry
When it comes into focus
All the effort starts to shine
No time to worry
No time to whine
An epic adventure’s
Just waiting on that horizon line
You’ve got the end goal in mind
Fear no pressure
For none can so measure
The diamond waiting inside

[Poetry] Life’s Morsels

When life doesn’t care
There’s nothing you can do
Morsels lie right there
More than just a few.
So come to the table
Bring your hunger
I’ll help you till you’re able.
There’s some you might prefer
Still, save your strength
Tomorrow comes with greater.
With patience comes wealth
And a roof that’s warmer.
Fight on, young one!
Don’t neglect a crumb
And when it’s all said and done
Look back on how far you’ve come.

[Poetry] Temporary Eternity

They say it’s only temporary
Soon I’ll see mommy and daddy
They’re just going on a trip
I wonder where they’d go
Maybe they’re on a big ship
I wish I could go though
I guess I’m too small
Still, it won’t be long
Till I’m big and strong
I’ll see mommy and daddy again…

How much longer?
I’ve gotten bigger/ stronger
Why have you left me here?
You do not love me!
Otherwise, you’d be here
And set me on your knee
And tell me stories
Of your trip together…

Someone lied!
They’re not coming back
Perhaps they even died.
Regardless, I’ll take it in stride
There’s little keeping me here
Quick! While no one’s near!
I’ll sneak out of here tonight
Something just isn’t right
They pick and prod
This place needs to be outlawed
Who keeps someone away
From his family!

[Poetry] Voices Rise to His Glory

Let our voices ring
A wonderful song we’ll sing
As we join the heavenly choir
In a land, we’ll never tire.
We’ll raise our voices higher
To bring glory to His name
He took away our shame
Through the raging fire.
Gifts we will bring
To our Savior and King
For he is worthy
He holds all the glory.

Is it bad when you want to write more after you already finish something? Not really. Still, I had a few lines left over from my previous poem today, “To God be the Glory”, and wanted to use them so I reworked them a bit and wrote a new poem with them. Hope you enjoy and if you want to see more, follow and comment telling me what you’d like to see more of.

[Poetry] To God be the Glory

To God be the glory
Come now and see,
The greatness of love
He gave for you and me.
He sent his Son
Down from above
To save us from sin,
And the mess that we’re in.
To him, we give all the praise
And our hands, we will raise.
Let the heavens hear our voice
In his glorious name
We will rejoice.

This is a poem based off the hymn “To God be the Glory.” It felt like it worked with the word “Glorious,” so I thought I’d use it. I tried to keep it with having a musical flare to it, so I hope you really enjoy it. Also, this is part of a personal challenge to write and publish something new everyday this month.

[Poetry] A Rose’s Sting

Through the petals
And on the stem
Be careful of the thorns,
Which hide just underneath
The surface level
Must be patient however
For a gem hides in the mayhem
And the sting you must endeavor.
At times you may mourn
But fight on, dear warrior
For something wonderful lies
Just further beneath
Of glory/ a prize!
