I Feel You: POEM WEEK


MY LIFE WAS IN SHAMBLES

I DIDN’T KNOW WHAT TO DO

SO I HAD A TALK WITH GOD TO SEE IF HE COULD MAKE SENSE OF WHAT I WAS GOING THROUGH

I SAID LORD, TALK TO ME PLEASE AND WHAT YOU SAY MAKE IT CLEAR

I AM HE WHO HATH AN EAR SO SPEAK SO I CAN HEAR

SON….I’VE BEEN BATTERED AND BEATEN TALKED ABOUT AND USED

SPIT ON AND CHEATED, LEFT HALF DEAD AND LOOKING NEARLY DEFEATED

SO FROM YOU DEAR LORD, A WORD I NEEDED TO HEAR

BUT THEN I THOUGHT HOW COULD HE KNOW…THEN I BEGAN TO FEAR

THE FIRST THING I HEARD IN THE MIDDLE OF MY CHORES

SON…REMEMBER AS THE HEAVENS OUR HIGHER THAN THE EARTH SO ARE MY WAYS HIGHER THAN YOURS

I PAUSED FOR A SECOND AND SAID THIS IS SO TRUE

BUT HOW COULD HE RELATE TO WHAT I WAS GOING THROUGH

HE SAID DON’T FRET MY SON. RELAX AND NEVER FEAR

MR. HE THAT HATH AN EAR…I AM ABOUT TO SPEAK AGAIN SO LISTEN AND HEAR

I CAME DOWN FROM THE HEAVENS AND PUT ON HUMANITY

TO BE A SACRIFICE, AND A ROLE MODEL FOR THE WHOLE WORLD TO SEE

SURELY YOUR SORROWS I’VE COVERED AND YOUR GRIEFS I BORE

AND NAILED THEM TO THE CROSS SO THERE’S NO NEED TO WORRY ANYMORE

I WOULD BEAR THE SINS OF MANY AS IN EVERYONE AND BRING TO ALL SALVATION

IN HOPES YOU WOULDN’T BE DIVIDED, BUT ONE GODLY NATION

WHILE ON EARTH I LEARNED OBEDIENCE PUSHING PAST THE FLESH… AND WHAT I SUFFERED THROUGH WOULD HAVE KILLED YOU

SO DON’T THINK I DON’T KNOW. THE TRUTH IS……I FEEL YOU
