Show of Hands

DownUp 0

Despite the differences of skin color
and our cultural upbringings,
we’re more than brothers of Mankind –
Technically, we’re kin.

Go to the mountain
preserved by ice and snow
where the revelation of Ararat’s secret
is available for everyone to know.

For the ark’s existence
proves the global flood story is true
and being our brother’s keeper…
Is still a right thing to do.

Descended from Noah
are the many races of Man;
see our palms have the same tint –
By a show of hands.

New Age Spirituality

DownUp 0

Why settle for a counterfeit
when you can have the genuine thing?
For the purpose of “new age” spirituality
is replacing God with the Human Being.

Working from a false assumption
that Man is essentially good,
will lead us down destruction’s path
as History has taught us, as it would.

The fight for supremacy
of our human souls
is still being waged by the Devil
under his planetary control.

Humanism has its agenda
that’s carefully worked under Satan’s scope –
our demise is his goal, but settles
to leave us without any hope.

Fragile, Flawed and Easily Broken

DownUp 0

Despite imperfections of this body,
my shell is an earthen clay jar
that’s fragile, flawed and easily broken,
letting the Light of Christ shine.
Though not pretty on the outside,
I won’t be mistaken
for a white-washed tomb –
God can use my weakness
to display His greatness.
I’ve chosen to be submitted
to His Will and Plan for my life.
In spite of exterior chips, dings and nicks,
Christ looks inwardly at my heart.

Brought to Enlightenment

DownUp 0

We must learn to do
and not weakly try;
for with Christ, all is possible –
Just stop asking “Why?”

Bow before Him on bended knees,
for His Ways are superior to ours.
Spend quality time in prayer
and not simply waste precious hours.

To be brought to enlightenment,
one must learn on his own.
Yet, the secret is simply this –
Go before God and His Throne.

Drawn To You

DownUp 0

The softness of Your quiet voice
penetrates my spirit with utmost clarity –
For being drawn to you
comes more than naturally.

The constant woes of earthly cares
lack all meaning and worth
when I’m consumed by Your presence
and experience my spiritual rebirth.

Despite the magnificent beauty
of this planet’s garden fields,
I would willingly exchange it
for the brilliance that Heaven yields.

Since I’m captivated by The Light,
being drawn to You is… the sweetest of delights.

Green Meadows

DownUp 0

Beneath the shadow
of the Great Shepherd’s staff,
in the green lushness of Life’s plateau,
my spirit continues to laugh.

Despite the dumbness of this sheep
to His voice I’ve heeded.
For God’s Love is greater than deep
and to His Principles, I’ve conceded.

My life is filled with abundance
beyond mortal imagination.
Enjoying protection from circumstance
came from obeying rules of His Holy Nation.

From displaying a submissive behavior
towards a God most divine,
I’m covered with blessings from my Savior
and reside in green meadows until Eternity’s time.

Today’s Great Undead Poets

DownUp 0

Today’s great undead poets,
awash in the internet sea,
seek to fill the void of sensible emptiness
of our cyberspace world.
Following the heroic tradition of Man,
these daring individuals look to gain acceptance
through the expression of concepts.
Mirroring the virility and vitality of Life,
in defiance of critical naysayers,
the blankness of virtual paper
is scribbled upon with hurt, hope and ideals.
Writing styles and topics,
whether expressed in romanticized language
or the coarseness of profanity,
are brilliantly reflected in individualized glory
and authors bask in the personal satisfaction of achievement.
In the ever continuing flow of poetic thought,
today’s great undead poets
find treasures in the discovery of self.

Immortality

DownUp 0

Ahhh… Immortality.

After the death of my earthly flesh,
my spirit will fully embrace it.
For I’m truly made
in my Creator’s Image
and filled with His Divine presence.
How can anyone doubt…
The premise of my logic?

Ahhh… Immortality.

Captivated By The Light

DownUp 0

My inner desire is to be…
Free from the continuing burden
of my soul’s carnality.

For I wish to be liberated
from the snares of sin’s grip
and be forever emancipated.

Truly, I’m captivated by The Light
that shines eternally into my spirit
and erases my heart’s love of Earthly delights.

Fulfillment of my life’s emptiness
is only met by a spiritual purpose
with God’s call to His Holiness.

Moments of Clarity

DownUp 0

Oh, how I desire more
of Your Light’s essence,
to clearly penetrate
the core of my being.

How much can I endure
without Your Presence?
Though I may be frustrated,
it’s You Lord, I’m believing.

It’s been said before,
in Your Word’s eloquence –
“nothing new” has been stated
and it agrees with what I’m seeing.

Moments of clarity, at the door
of Your Kingdom’s brilliance,
are revelations of my faith’s fate,
found under Your grace and loving… kindness.
