How Much?

A rulerís inches measure height,
Any linear measure in sight.
We use pounds to determine weight,
Charts for calories on our plate.
The results may cause some to sigh,
To worldly standards we donít comply.

There are tests to determine IQ.
Tests show how well students can do.
Music has set beats per measure.
Poets use meter for your pleasure.
Measures can be passed by Congress
Causing both joy and or distress.

Cup and ounces are used by cooks,
Careful measurement not overlooked.
Nurses use a thermometer.
Cars come with a speedometer.
Measure can be a noun or a verb
Different meanings please or disturb.

A manís measure how can we know,
Success, wealth and power to show?
The world will tell us this is true.
The Bible tells us something new.
God loved us so much He sent His Son
To die to bring us salvation.
Godís love for us canít be measured.
This truth should be always treasured.

This is a really good poem with a great message!

This is really good. I thought the words just flowed off the page. The rhymes were great too. You also did a nice job of weaving the topic throughout this delightful poem.

Very nice!

This is a good poem and well on topic. I liked your examples of different types of measures, but especially the contrast with the measure of "Truth". The end could be just a bit stronger, but overall it is wonderful.

Excellent rhyming here. Great job counting the syllables and coming up with a variety of measures which fit the theme nicely. Good point as well.

Really like this poem. Moving and touching.
God bless~

Excellent use of the topic in your poem. Good use of rhyme and rhythm. I agree that last stanza could be strengthened because it doesn't flow as well as the others.
