TITLE: Shopper’s Central

My girl will go out shopping
She could ten times a day.
She takes a list, things she needs
But then throws it away.

Slowly she walks down each aisle
She loves to read each can.
Will she ever find something
To feed this hungry man?

The healthy food that she bought
Will make our bodies strong.
But for the other things in life
Her cooking is all wrong.

Spiritually we need so much
Like my girlfriend’s groceries.
Not just one part fills you up
You need the whole you see.

There is a shopper central
It’s faith within your heart.
One part is in the bible
That is just a start.

There are lots of answers
While we are on our knees.
Also if we follow Him
He surly will be pleased.

One good thing about it
You can do your part.
If you want Jesus in your life
He’ll come live in your heart.

Feeding me with the word
Gods finally proved to me.
All I really need in life
Are His holy groceries.

I truly enjoyed this. I'm not a big poetry person but your delightful rhymes and fast pace drew me in immediately.

I did see a couple of tiny errors like Bible should be capitalized and you wrote surly which means grumpy when I think you meant surely. (Gotta love spell check :))

Not only did you write a piece that was pleasing to the ear, you also managed to deliver the perfect message in a kind and loving way.
