I looked for HIM in Old places but found HIM in New.
HE was named in many stories not just a few.
Job thought that he knew HIM until his eyes saw
What he had missed listening to friends was his flaw

To find HIM in Job confused thoughts in my head
But you are certain to find HIM if you look to the RED

Abraham was the father of nations we’re told
But he knew not Jehovah as he walked through the Old
HE declared whom HE was in a bush that did burn
Moses was given what Abraham never did learn

Though the bush did declare HIM the fire never spread
Throughout all generations ‘til you look to the RED

Then HE walked among us and we knew HIM by sight
HE touched those in the darkness who now saw a light
Taught, healed and delivered all those in HIS path
Multiplied two fish and five loaves in new math

Then laid HIS life down, with HIS own blood did shed
If you want to see HIM, HE is best in HIS RED!

[John 14:6-7]

Beautiful poem: a great message, and the rhythm flowed nicely. I really like this one.

There is so much that can be said in poetic form and you do it very well. I find the poem very unique.

Really good poem!

I found the words in all caps just a tad distracting, but that's probably just me.

I love poetry that says so much in an economy of words.

Interesting, rather confusing in parts, I would expect more.
