“Eek,” is the time when I write things in rhyme,
Which come from a past memory.
I picked up a snake that I found by the lake,
And brought home for all to see.

The little girls screamed and the older boys beamed,
The parents just shook their head.
But I felt just as good, as any boy would,
Cause I put one inside their bed.

“Eek,” is today, when to everyone I say,
This world is denying their God.
It makes things quite scary and even quite hairy,
When there is no fear of the rod.

People live for them self, putting God on the shelf,
Then wonder why blessings don’t come.
Outside they are great, because they took Satan’s bait,
But inside their feeling quite numb.

Now lets jump ahead to where the future is read,
The Bible has it spelled out quite clear.
It tells of a place for those without God’s grace,
Who live everlasting in fear.

For they died with their sin and therefore didn’t win,
When Jesus called they slammed the door.
When He spoke to their soul, they would not yield control,
Now their chances will be no more.

Now “Eek” barely tells of that bottomless well,
Where they’ll spend eternity.
But those in Heaven above will be saturated in love,
And forever will live life that’s free.

Now what will you say on this two thousand ten day,
Will you give Him your life and heart?
Will you give Him control of both body and soul?
And the Holy Spirit, He will impart.

A good way to use eek. It is quite scary to think of people being without God and denying Him.

We don't see enough internal rhyme here in the Writing Challenge--well done!

I really enjoyed your rhyming pattern. it takes talent to do that. Your words touched my heart- a great message throughout.

Defintely a poem with some very good points within. Not the smoothest poem I've ever read...but has such a good message that the lack of a perfect rhythmic beat can be overlooked. Nice job.
