The stone looked so inviting
The balance act was great
Who could last the longest
And still reach heavens gate

One teeters to the bottle
One totters to the porn
The walks been undertaken
With the fence between the throne

Were straddling the fence post
Stepping over all the points
Wanting all the worldly side
For its temporary delights

Many of us walk the path
We know that is not true
Hoping we can slide between the slats
Yet keep Christ in our view

We like to walk through the Bible
Putting our desires in its truth
Searching in our own power
Yet wanting rescued when life turns sour

Are you walking in the Sonís shine
Or in the shadow of the dark
Is the fence between the glory
Of yet another soul

Is your finger on the me button
Of the computer of your life
Will you push delete
Casting Christ from your life

Come walk with the Savor
Keep His light in your view
Let the victory of His power
In you to others shine through

Quit walking on the fence post
Hopping left and than to right
Youíre hopping from glory
to the darkness of the night


Come walk with me He whispers
As He calls out your name
Lets leave the balance act forever
IN His arms never again to stray

The Balance Act is an exceptional work of poetry. I believe it professes the work of our Lord in a way that any one can understand. Thank you for letting me read and comment on this article.

Great message here! A little work on the rhyme and meter, and some typos and such would improve it greatly. Thanks so much!

The message is good. The poetry is rough.
