Lord,
What reasons linger yet for fear? Within
This fragile heart, what shadows creep and cling
As darkness like a hunger captures prey?
Some days limp by as sad casualties,
Bearing the heavy countenance of war.
Call upon the Great Physician to heal
Such wounds! No greater healing can be found.
Surely we all know well the ways of strife.

Father,
Imposing walls tower before me, great
Monoliths grasping for the sky. One glimpse
Of blue, one whisper of precious sunlight
My eyes search vainly for. I hear your voice.
When senses fail and gold reverts to lead
In Midas mockery you urge my fist
To loose its grip, for clutching tighter to
The air adds only folly to descent.

Savior,
The greatest blindness I impose upon
Myself. And when I drift from fortresses
Of strength to build upon the sand my home,
Your hand never urges such migration.
Confessions of hope dissolve into cries
Of anguish and despair, not when you move
But when our all too human eyes become
Enamored with the world of self. But you,
Oh God of gods, from everlasting to
Everlasting give mightily in love.
The treasures found within your storehouses
Unlike our dust and air never tarnish
And lie beyond the reach of would-be thieves.
Your light invaded this fallen world, and
Witnesses confessing your light receive
Faith in sealed hope for glories yet to come.

With eyes transfixed upon your saving grace
I yearn to live: Fully now; future bound.

Beautiful devotional and introspective piece. I loved hearing your heart speak to God. Nice job. God Bless~

I was really blessed by your poem. It's well written, engaging, and encouraging, also instructional in biblical truths.

This is so lovely. The words tug at my heart.

I did have a hard time seeing it fit the topic, but often poems will go over my head. This seems more like a beautiful praise poem that one might find in Psalms.

No matter what, you wrote an outstanding poem that will touch many hearts. That is what is truly important to follow God's nudging and proclaim his glory to the world.
