TITLE: Focus Focus

I canít think of anything, the words just wonít come.
I want to just quit for the rest of the day.
I know I can do it but Iím feeling quite dumb.
How can a talker like me have nothing to say?

And then thereís the outcome of what I will write.
Will it have meaning or just random phrases?
Without a clear focus my thoughts just take flight.
The rhythm and rhyme seem to miss all the bases.

If I write just for me without God in the plan,
The words that I write are mostly just blocked.
The text has no meaning and alone cannot stand.
But if I write for Jesus the transcript just rocked.

For when Iím inspired the magic just flows.
The thoughts in my mind will come rushing in.
I type and I type as my finger joint bows.
But I know that through Christ my message will win.

It was through a mind block that Satin conquered the earth.
Deception and evil through the snake on the ground.
And through disobedience man had diminished his worth.
Now his only hope was that inspiration was found.

For thousands of years man came and he went.
Sometimes he would listen, sometimes disobey.
He would block out his God and on sin was quite bent,
And would end up in punishment by the end of the day.

So God sent us His Son in the form of a man.
To inspire the world and help them to cope.
Through the writers of Scriptures, He revealed His plan.
To offer a victory in His Messenger of Hope.

For He is the writer who has inspiration.
Never for Him will the words seem to block.
His message is clear providing Salvation.
Through Jesus Christ my future is locked.

Thank you for a very well written poem. Your title was perfect because without focus we stumble and fall.

I really enjoyed the way you used your own writer's block as a contrast to the true sourse of all inspiration. Great thought provoking poem.

One of the great features of FaithWriters is Jan's Writing Class which can be found by clicking on the Forums at the top of this page. Jan is currently looking at poetry construction and I'm sure you'll find what she has to say most helpful.
