TITLE: Sowing Words

Be a blessing and always sow,
words of encouragement wherever you go.

Encouraging the soul who struggles along,
speaking comfort over trials strong.

Helping the person whose head is low,
lifting those with a weary soul.

Helping your brothers and sisters too,
pointing to Christ for strength renewed.

Trying to raise their spirits low,
replacing grief with joys untold.

Nothing is better for strength renewed,
than words of encouragement spoken by you.

They lift the heavy heart and soul,
with wings of faith that you bestow.

Sow words of encouragement each day anew,
so they can grow in others too.


********************
If thou put the brethren in remembrance of these things, thou shalt be a good minister of Jesus Christ, nourished up in the words of faith and of good doctrine, whereunto thou hast attained. - I Timothy 4:6 KJV

Each day we should make it a goal to ask the Lord to show us someone we can encourage. Iím sure if we look hard enough there is always someone who is in need of it, maybe even someone closer than you think. Spread the seed of encouraging words each day. Help others by showing the way.

I like your 6th couplet especially--so true!

You don't need a comma at the end of every first line--sometimes no punctuation at all is needed. Just punctuate as you would a piece of prose.

Nice title, sweet little poem.

The title drew me in and I loved the poem. Thanks!

This is nice! Your message is good. You've done a good job with the rhyme and meter. One suggestion that someone gave me was to use a thesaurus. I found one online and I also like to use an online rhyming dictionary. (If you want more info PM me.) Keep working on your poetry!

I can feel the place the writer/poet is coming from in this piece. It is written with honesty and integrity which makes its truth that much more profound. Keep up the great work!

This piece is full of encouragement. It's written from the heart, and I think you did a lovely job.

I liked the poem. I didn't think you needed the bit afterwards. Just my thought, though. You are an encouragement to many people on the FW boards, so you have already put this poem's words into action. :)
