Good Versus Evil

As I travel the path God planned for me each day; Many beautiful temptation comes my way. I see, recognize, understand, know all them for what they are; the enemy of evil is not very far. I fight with good as my sword and shield; for what to live amongst the lillies in the field.
I prepare for the days as I lie down at night; for the plan from God, takes me through my plight. I am never alone, yet lonely I live; People associate with me, only for what I can give. I gave away too much of my soul; through Jesus, God heard me, now I am whole. Broken hearted, no self esteem, no willingness to go; God showed me all the things to woe. Now a smile is all I have to share; keeping my faith, for I will soon be "there." Amen.

Thanks for sharing these inner feelings.

A really and truly beautiful poem - but I suggest you set it in verses in the usual, typical poetic form.

Really enjoyed this one! Thanks for sharing.

A nice testimony to God's saving power.

Separating this into lines and perhaps stanzas would definitely make this look more like a poem.

I liked these lines: "I am never alone, yet lonely I live;" and "keeping my faith, for I will soon be 'there.'"
Thanks for sharing.

Another interesting format - taking rhyming lines "out of the stanza box" and letting them flow with the freedom of prayer. Nicely done.

Very nice. You may want to rethink your format, but overall, it's great. Wonderful thoughts.

A very nice testimony which could easily be set into poetic form. Keep writing!
