Every morning
He climbs out of his fist
And hacks, hacks, hacks.

Every day
He is a lonely teenage boy
Who attacks, attacks, attacks.

Every night
He digests more anger
And smacks, smacks, smacks.

High school is his daily prison sentence.
The computer is his tool of friendless revenge.
He spreads viruses to ease his feelings of abandonment.

A kid in the neighborhood befriends him
And invites him to youth group.
He finds love.
He finds mercy.
He finds acceptance.
He finds friendship.
He finds salvation.
He finds Jesus.
He finds his purpose.

Every morning
He climbs out of his Bible
And prays, prays, prays.

Every day
He asks the Lord to keep him
From going astray, astray, astray.

Every night
He visits Christian chatrooms
Trying to obey, obey, obey.

High school is his daily mission field.
The computer is his tool of befriending lonely teenage boys.
He spreads Godís acceptance instead of viruses.

Nicely done - creative way of presenting the topic. I enjoyed it - flowed nicely.
God Bless~

Oh, I like this. I love the parallels from the beginning to the end.

It seems like this could be the basis for a longer work.... It felt just a bit short to me.

Nice job with this one.

God does change us, doesn't He. You did a great job of showing the contrast of a life that becomes a tool in the Lord's hands, literally. Good job!

I liked this. Right on topic and right to the point. Nicely done.

A very thought provoking piece. It shows how something can be used for both good and bad, all it takes is for the tools to be in the hand of a craftsman. Well done.

The sad thing about this poem is that there's a multitude of lost loners in our world creating havoc, dying for the lack of a godly friend who would point them to Jesus. We need to be that friend! Good job!
