Imagine If You Will

Imagine if you will
a cold and lonely walk
family and friends are gone
no one to listen when you talk.

Imagine if you will
a silence which fills the air
you long to hear a car or bird
yet finding nothing there.

Imagine if you will
as you continue on
trees, roads, houses and streams
you find they all are gone.

Imagine if you will
a voice ring out in fear
asking God almighty
about a world no longer here.

Imagine if you will
a soft and gentle reply
raining down from heaven
as your soul begins to cry.

Before your world returneth
an answer you must find
to how you walk the christian walk
yet leave your soul behind.

You fail to see the homeless
as you turn your head away
a word of hope and love
could bring their soul my way.

That is just a sample
of what I saw today
as I sat in filthy rags
and you just walked away.

With love and understanding
this chance I give to you
see the world as it could be
and start your life anew.

With a clap of rolling thunder
you watch all things return
as in your very heart and soul
deep his words do burn.

Imagine if you will
this story to be true
as you reflect upon your day
had God confronted you?


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

I imagined I was there! Thanks! Donna

You've put an imagination challenge in every stanza, Kevin and pose a thought-provoking question at the end. (Since you ask for critique, I will say that though I certainly enjoyed your poem, what would improve it for me is a bit more attention to rhythm - it runs a wee bit rough in some places) ~ Violet

Kevin, I immediatley revisited my day after reading this and realized that God confronted me each time I talked to, smiled at or even thought of anyone. Good job, Brother!
