Sitting in my easy chair
Sipping on my wine
Remote in hand, channel surfing
Wish I could feel fine
What is this I'm watching
What could it be?
They're singing about Jesus
Is this Church on my TV?
The music's really something
I'm touched in my heart
I know that Im a sinner, but,
Could I have a brand new start?
They're singing,"It's no risk,
Take that step toward Him
Receive eternal life
Let the Lord live within"
I fill my bowl with peanuts
Wipe from my eye a tesr
Now, where's that shopping network
Why do I keep coming back here?
Pastor's saying, "Know the truth,
And it will set you free."
But aren't I free already?
This joint tastes good to me
I say, "Well, what the hell?"
Oops, cussing isn't right
I want to give my heart to God
But my throat's getting tight
I put my hands together
I get down on my knees
Show me how to pray, now
Jesus, help me please
I look into the mirror
Am I still the same?
What could have changed within me?
I know
He's taken all the blame!

Oh my gosh...I loved this poem. The ending was powerfully executed, and so true. It touched my heart.

Thank you.

Gob bless~

I really enjoyed this sweet poem. You did a nice job with relating to all ages.

The only thing I might suggest would to break it in to smaller stanzas to give the reader that all important white space.

I think you did a beautiful job.

Very well done. Loved this one. Reads like the lyrics of a song.
