Olympic Color

Colorful flags are flying,
Excitement's in the air,
And uniforms are on display,
The crowds are everywhere.

Each nation's represented,
Their flags are proudly borne,
The colors bright and beautiful
So gloriously adorn.

The Olympic flag's a symbol--
The five rings intertwined--
To show that all five continents
Unite as humankind.

Blue and yellow, black and green
And red upon the white,
One color shows up somewhere
On every country's flight.

As flags unfurl and athletes stand
Our hearts lift high with pride,
Our best is represented,
Their hard work justified.

As colorful as the display
It pales to what I'll see
When one day heaven is my home
What God prepares for me.

Then too I'll stand before the judge,
I'll raise my banner high,
And hopefully His heart will sing
And proudly He will sigh...

“My child, it is finished,
Your work at last is done,
Achievements did not get you here
But My race you have run.

My blood has covered all your sins,
And you are free at last,
A world of color I've prepared
A world that's unsurpassed.”


“No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love him” – I Corinthians 2:9 (NIV)

What better place to see all the world's colours than at the olympics - good setting for this poem. And yes, the colours and beauty waiting for us, unimaginable.

Awesome tie in from the Olympics to the race of the faithful--good job. I don't really see any glitches. It has a nice flow and covers the topic.

Refreshing look at the topic. I like the image of the Olympics as a symbol for our own "race" to the finish.

This is a very awesome poem...I liked it the first time I read it, and on second read it is still just as good. Thank you by the way for your kind words about my writing.
