Poetry

These are just some poems that I have enjoyed, I didn't actually write them...

After a while you learn the subtle difference between
Holding a hand and chaining a soul and you learn
that love doesn't mean leaning
and company doesn't always mean security.

And you begin to learn that kisses aren't contracts
and presents aren't promises,
and you begin to accept your defeats
with your head up and your eyes ahead,
with the grace of a woman, not the grief of a child.

And you learn to build all your roads on today
because tomorrow's ground is too uncertain for plans
and futures have a way of falling down in mid-flight.

After a while you learn that even sunshine burns
if you get too much, so you plant your own garden
and decorate your own soul
instead of waiting for someone to bring you flowers.

And you learn that you really can endure,
you really are strong, you really do have worth,
and you learn and you learn.

With every goodbye, you learn.

I am flying like an airplane
Soaring above in the bright blue sky
No though of crashing has ever reached my mind
I am about to die without the slightest knowledge
Going to visit my aunt who is dieing from cancer
My mom always told me God is always the answer

The hitting of the twin towers
People everywhere are responding with flowers
All day walking around spending my day
People faces are a light tint of gray.
The world flags all shown all around
At half-staff the world would one day will rebound
Walking through the park listening to the sound
JESUS
Help me please through this time
I feel the diameter of a dime
I am on my knees right now calling you
Lord come inside
Lord
Please help through this hard time

I feel full of sin and shame.
And I know I'm the one to blame.

I call out for my best friend, my Savior,
So I may be humbled for my indecent behavior.

Tears of humility stream down my red face
As I hear His voice, the sound of grace.

Holding me close in His warm arms,
He wipes away my tears and protects me from harm.

"No more of that," I hear Him say.
"Just give me all your fears and begin anew today."

But Lord, I saw myself today for the first time.
Why is it You still want to be mine?

"It's because I love you with all my heart,
And I don't want us to drift apart."

Oh Lord, I'm not worthy to be Yours.
"You are, my child, and I'm here to keep you on course."

He pulled me closer and held me tighter.
Suddenly my heart felt ten pounds lighter.

He took away all my sorrow and pain,
Released me while he has nothing to gain.

As he walked away, I knew
My life had finally come into view.

For every single child of God, there is a secret place
where we can go to hide and pray, and seek our Father's face.

A place where no one else can tread  where no one else can go,
we find there grace and solitude, and peace for our weary soul.

We fold our hands and close our eyes, as we kneel before the Lord,
in the closet of our mind we step, inside and close the door.

We pray according to His will, and ask in Jesus' name,
we know our Father hears us, for His Word says just the same.

We ask the Lord to heal the sick,  to bless the broken hearted,
have mercy on the sinner's soul, and peace to the just departed.

We pray "dear Lord please hear my cry!, I'm praying now for others,
I've never seen or met them but, they're my sisters and my brothers.

And Lord you know the special need, that binds their lives today,
please bless them Lord and heal them all, In Jesus' name we pray.

And for the ones unsaved Oh Lord, we pray a special prayer,
please lead and guide and keep them, in your tender loving care.

Lord send them Heaven's Angels to soften their hearts of stone,
and give them peace inside Lord, and save their precious souls.

And for the ones who hate you with bitterness and disdain,
who curse their very souls Lord, when they take your name in vain.

We pray Lord please have mercy, and shower them with grace,
forgive them of their sins Lord, in Jesus' name we pray.

And Father pave the way for me, to touch someone today,
to help them come to know you, in that very special way.

That you loved the world so much you gave, your Son on the cross to die,
that you wish for no one to perish, but for all everlasting life.

We pray for the ones who pray for those, who have a special need,
we ask you Lord to bless them all, as they pray on bended knee.

In the lives of those they're praying for, we ask you to provide,
all things the soldiers ask in prayer, please hear their humble cry.

In Jesus' name we ask today, according to Thy perfect will,
doubting not we now believe as we give we shall receive.

Thank you Father for your Love, your Mercy and your Grace,
thank you for this time of prayer, to seek your righteous face.

We praise you Lord and love you, we glorify your Holy name,
and we thank you Holy Spirit, we're so joyful that you came.

Now as we go about our way, let us share the joy you give,
let us sing with happy heart and soul, within us your Spirit lives.

We ask according to thy will, in Jesus' name we send,
this prayer to you on angels' wings, Amen Oh Lord Amen.
