Look To God

 Look to God,
man cannot save souls.
He will always have your back.
Still pray, even though you’ve sinned.

He will forgive you
because His love for you is never-ending.
You are His creation –
His sons and daughters.

As a people, we live our lives in fear.
Fear of everything man can do to us
if we do this or that.
That is one of
the worst things we can do.

Fear for what God
will do to us on judgment day
should be our only concern
while we are still given a chance
to make the right decision.

1 John 1:9  KJV
If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us [our] sins, and to 
cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

Romans 3:23  KJV
For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.

Smiling With Tears

My brand of humor isn’t always funny
Yet you always crack a smile when I fry a joke.
That is what I love about you.
That is how I’ll always remember you.
Smiling with tears in your eyes.

A Tree Within Me

There’s a tree growing within me,
a hope like fire burning within me,
a thirst like water running within me,
a courage like love fueling me,
success is my story

fear has no place here,
it has a sour and bitter taste I hate,
a big, big lie that should never be believed,
a prison with limited access,
locks and chains that takes courage to break

Heart Strings

Heart on a guitar.
The music has died down.
The strings have worn out.

Minds evolved with time.
Things have changed for better or worse.
Love is unsure of where to land.

Love Matters

Love matters to me.
To function without love
is impossible for me to do.
I always need it around me
whether I am giving or receiving.
When I feel loved,
I feel superhuman.
