God's Kingdom

There is a land across the sea
The other side of the world from me.
The United Kingdom is its name
It was from there my ancestors came.

England, Ireland, Scotland, Wales,
Island lands of hills and dales,
Steeped in history of days of old,
And traditions the people stoutly uphold.

But the United Kingdom of which I dream,
Is the one where Jesus reigns supreme.
Where every person, large or small,
Is part of the family, one and all.

Where all the angst in life is dead
And no curses or lies are ever said.
A kingdom blessed as no other
Everyone is sister or brother.

Oh what joy my heart will feel
Because our unity will be real.
Love will abound throughout the place
When we see Jesus face to face.

When Jesus comes to rule as King
Joyfully we will praises sing
Together in perfect harmony
The United Kingdom that will be.

The way you connected your ancestory to the UK and then your heritage with in the Kingdom of God was really good.
I enjoyed your poem.

I like the way you wove your poem from earthly kingdoms into the Kingdom of God. This flowed nicely in rhyme and rhythm.

I enjoyed your poem, and it flowed well! (Actually, the same thought about God's "United Kingdom" crossed my mind when I first saw the topic for this week!) Good job, and blessings on your writing! :)
