TITLE: So I Walked…


The distinctive character of who I thought I was
Had been challenged to a journey.
So I walked…
Little did I know that this walk would be the path
That determined my destiny,
On this walk I learned so much that it wasn’t just information
But a word of transformation.
I didn’t know really what to expect
Yet no fear plagued me of what was next.
So I walked…
I didn’t understand at fist why I had to go thru
I prayed and I cried and the Lord simply said :
My Child… I’m making you!
This was something that my flesh didn’t get
This is where the word and my spirit met
Paul said in 2 Corinthians 3:18:
But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror
The glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image,
From glory to glory, just as by the spirit of the Lord.
So I walked…
Tear stains embedded in the sheets of my bed,
As once confused thoughts raced through my head.
Little did I know I was being broken,
Broken from the habitual condition of my past.
Being broken from every generational curse
That plagued the depths of my soul.
Though many blisters and aches
I’ve learned there was a place I had to go
So I walked…
Following David’s example and coming to the mercy seat,
I restored my relationship with God.
Now knowing that I had to be subject to the actions of my transformer,
I walked…
I walked this journey thru a crowed of disbelief
Feeling like I had no one to really understand me
No one knowing exactly how I felt.
I had to get past the way people predicted the way I should go
I had to transform…
I had to let go…
So I walked…
I walked until my PAST let me PASS
I walked until I began to walk in my abundance
This walk was beyond reasoning.
I chose to walk trusting in the Lord with all my heart,
Leaning not to my own understanding,
But in all my ways I began acknowledging Him,
And he said: Come my child let me direct your path!
So I walked…
As I walked the song of my heart changed.
My walk modulated from one key to the next
Connecting the sections of my mind with the composition of my life.
Oh what a melodious tune I have become!
I had arrived to the place of transition,
I took the passage from one place to another.
No longer the same
God Broke the chains
He revealed himself thru my transformation
I have been transformed to walk on the path of transition
Which leads me to my purpose.
I glory in my tribulations knowing that my tribulations
Produce perseverance and that my perseverance produced
My new character and my new character produced a new
Hope, which is in Christ Jesus!
I was being transformed for transition
So I walked…

Yes! the glorious purpose of being conformed to His image...transformation.

I think you have the right idea; this poem definitely wants to be free verse. To give this piece's genre a more clear identity, you might want to focus on alliteration and other poetic devices instead of internal rhyme. A great message, and you have some beautiful phrases and thoughts here!

"So I walked...." The regular repeating of that phrase is very effective in giving this entry a sense of motion! Nice work, taking your reader along on your transformation journey, becoming conformed to the image of Christ Jesus! God bless your writing.
