TITLE: Supplied by God, Who Brings Me Clarity

Lord, open my eyes so I may perceive,
Wonderful gifts of your decree.

A special tome, of mans creation,
Distinctive events of our foundation.

Mysterious is your ancient lexis,
I humbly desire your steadfast nexus.

Only now, upon my knees,
My prayers to You, “Lord save me please.”

That special instance my heart is receptive,
Your truth revealed, no longer deceptive.

Tears, they stream upon my face,
I suffer the love within Your grace.

Once more I gaze upon the tome,
With earnest yearning I do comb.

Hours pass, the pages I peruse,
Salvation gained, Satan cannot confuse.

Amid other sinners, my soul shall empathize,
Thank you God, for now I realize.

Existence has always been a struggle,
With His help, I can now juggle.

My conscience houses settled convictions,
I no longer consider past addictions.

With joyfulness I understand,
Now I anticipate the Promised Land.

My essence filled, complete with charity,
Supplied by God, who brings me clarity.

Anyone who thinks to rhyme "lexis" and "nexus" is a hero in my book!

I love poetry! You've done beautiful work on this. Some of your rhyming words are wonderful and you have some perceptive thoughts. (I didn't realize Lexis was anything but a car...I'm going to have to research that. :) Good writing.

Very nice! Flowed very well and I liked the ryhme, my only note is I think it is correct as "man's" instead of "mans" right? Otherwise, great job! ^_^
