Joseph

Joseph was Jacobís favorite son.
His brotherís thought this was no fun.
When he received a special coat,
It could be he was apt to gloat.

His dreams added fuel to the fire
And further raised his brotherís ire.
Even his father wasnít pleased.
You think weíll worship you? They teased.

When sent to on his brothers check,
They said, thereís that pain-in-the-neck.
Now we have a chance him to kill.
Reuben said his blood do not spill.

Throw him in this pit is my plan.
They sold him to a caravan.
By Potiphar he was then bought.
Everything went the way it ought.

Although by Joseph she was shunned,
Potiphar to his wife listened.
Even in prison he did well.
The meaning of dreams he did tell.

The cupbearer soon forgot it seems.
Until the Pharaoh had some dreams.
Now this happened two years later,
Joseph was the translator.

Joseph then a ruler became.
And his brothers he did not blame.
He said it was all in Godís plan.
Forgiveness he gave, man to man.

For getting the short end of the stick,
Joseph would be a very good pick.
So when you think life is not fair,
Of Godís presence please be aware.
Believing in God as you should,
All things work together for good.

So many times I refer to Joseph's life and how it was God that traded in His ashes for beauty ultimately lifting him from his circumstances...I love this story.

Good job with telling it through your poem, and I absolutely love the ending!

Nicely done.

God bless~

Nicely told Bible story.

Nice rhyming words.

This took some thought so keep up the good work.

I enjoyed this story in the form of a poem. It is one of my favourites in the Bible and you certainly got all the main points in your well-presented poem. (The spelling of the word favourite is a U.K. spelling).
