My Light

I'm a big red spot,
On a large white flower
I'm a broken window
On a crooked, leaning tower

I'm a lame sheep,
Watching others roam,
Wishing and praying
I was at my home.

I'm a hot cup of coffee,
Waiting to be spilled,
Or sipped all day
Just to find that I'm chilled.

I'm living in the dark
Afraid to come out
With a flicker of Light
In the midst of my doubt.

I'm a broken heart
That needs mending
From only the One who can
Keep me from ending.

The flicker of Light
My Light of hope,
Grows strong, and
Helps me to cope.

My Light helps me,
It guides me along
It helps me to see,
And it keeps me strong.

I am a large flower,
Thatís been washed white,
I am no longer stained,
And itís because of my Light.

This is lovely in every way. Wow!

My light of hope, very beautiful poem! Thank you Jesus for removing the stain.
Joshua Janoski 15 May 2008
I really enjoyed the second and third stanzas where you compare yourself to a sheep and to coffee. It is so true that without our light, we are forever lost in darkness. Wonderful message and a wonderful poem. :)

I was reading along and enjoying your poem - feeling like I would only have positive comments to say. However, the 3rd & 4th stanzas from the bottom I felt had minor flow issues. There is some rephrasing that could fix it and still keep the same message - but it's your beautiful poem and I won't attempt to rewrite it for you. Very enjoyable, thank you. Blessings & Success, ~DCJones
