We Poets
By Rick L King

We poets are a peculiar bunch
As we desire Godís words to heed
So that we can just pen the words
For hurting hearts to read

Sometimes we tell a story
As did Jesus when He did teach
It is just another way to make the message clear
To the hurting souls we desire to reach

Sometimes we may write words that may seem harsh
Yet these are words that must be said
For Jesus desires His people to be set free
That by His Spirit they may be led

Sometimes we get words
Which are warnings of things ahead
So that people may change their views
And allow Jesus once again to be the head

Other times we get words
That will bring healing to broken hearts
As people yield to the Holy Spirit
Their life will find a new start

Sometimes we get words
Just to encourage the one that has been so down
The words somehow bring a new smile
In place of the sad-faced frown

We also may get words
To teach others how to fight
And make their stand for Jesus
To bring them out from darkness to the light

We poets, yes, may be different
Yet we seek to edify
And bring the prisoners from the prison house
That they may find new life

We donít write these words for money
We write in obedience and love
For we desire Godís children to find
New freedom from up above

Our satisfaction is gained
When we pleased Jesus our Lord
And when we are allowed to hear
That a hurting heart was changed forevermore

Our motive must not be for recognition
A pat on the back or fame
For many people just donít read poem
They seem to think itís lame

It is just like the Lord to use
Something much of the world pushes away
Yet there must be coming a time
When Godís words will rule the day

Often the Holy Spirit speaks to us
Through the words we attempt to write
Of areas that also are in our lives
Which are not complete or right

When you read the words we write
I pray that you will give to us grace
And just allow the Holy Spirit room to speak
Maybe some words will help you run your race

Yes, we poets may be a different breed
Yet Godís love is in our heart
We are just a small limb of the whole body
And by Godís grace are just attempting, to do our part.
