LINE IN THE SAND… a poem of faith

I drew that line in the sand

But someone wiped it off again

So, I got down on my hands and knees

And drew it back where it had been

Image Credit

No sooner had I turned around

To glare back at the crowd

When someone started laughing

And someone else let out a shout

That line you drew it cannot last

No matter how hard you try

There’s a shadow cast down from a cross

Where Jesus had to die

Image Credit

But in His death, He took with Him

What should come as a surprise

Every sin that’s ever been

Along with every line

THE LINEAGE FALLS… a poem

From whence doth despair

Find its rosy rouge

Placed upon thy fair countenance?

Was not your prince,

Adorned in fawning armor,

Enough for your virtue?

Aye, tis with deep vexation

Your king beckons

This besmirching wraith

Be cast off his princess

With its superciliousness visage.

Alas, the bite of one’s own blade

Did bring dishonor upon our house.

Verily, the lineage falls.

FACE OF DEATH… a poem

Body, Spirit, Soul, Religion, Woman

A small remnant of fear holds me

Yet in my dreams I can see the light

Solace stands within my grasp

But I close my eyes afraid to fight

###############

What shadow is this that accosts me

As I near the end of my days

Whirlwind memories cast their spells

And pierce me through the haze

###############

Bravely, or perhaps cautiously

I steady my faltering breath

Alas, the time is finally here

And I face the face of death
