What color is your favorite?
My favorite is red.
Why is red your favorite?
Jesus died in my stead.

Jesus died in your stead?
What does that mean?
It means I am loved,
And I am clean.

You really believe that?
You know I do.
Why do you believe that?
Jesus made me new.


What color is your favorite?
My favorite is blue.
Why is blue your favorite?
It tells me each day is new.

Each day is new?
What does that mean?
It means blue skies,
And mistakes yet unseen.

You really believe that?
You know I do.
Why do you believe that?
It’s just how I grew.


As colors, red and blue represent so much more.
To like them is to open up the door.
The door to your heart is open wide,
Please let Jesus step inside.

Today if you are weighing your choices,
Stop listening to the other voices.
The voices that tell you, “You are worthless”,
That your life will always be a mess.

The benefits to living a life with Jesus,
Far outweigh a life with missing pieces.
When following Jesus the pros will always win,
While the cons, well, they will always do you in!

Loved this beautiful poem.

God bless~

Fun poem with a message - I like the dialogue aspect of it (going back and forth between speakers). Clever.
Brenda Rice 08/22/14
This has a clever format, a good message and covers the topic well.

Thanks for sharing.

I liked the way it felt like a conversation between two people. Intimate and not formal, but with a simple, strong message.

Sometimes poems are meant to be short (to short to enter). This is what I feel about this entry. You had to enlarge it. When you went this direction you changed the short format even though you kept most of the rhyming sequence.

I would have liked the same short line format of the first part. I don't know how hard that would have been to work out

I can see, though, that you did spend quality time on the rhyming words.
