Poems

All of the poems on gratefulsue.com have been categorized according to the general theme of the poem. Each of those 20 themes or categories are listed in the navigation map to the right, and at the bottom of this page.  Click on a category of interest, scan the table of contents, and scroll down to the number of the title you like.  0r, read through the entire category, one at a time. 

Generally speaking, my earliest poems in each category are the lower numbers, and more recent poems are the higher numbers.  Therefore, the table of contents is inverted, so that the most recent works are at the top of each page.  

Songs are sprinkled throughout the poem categories listed, but are also duplicated on their own page, for easier reference.  All Bible references are from the New International Version.

Simple Poems

 

I want to write simple poems, because

            most folks are like me—

Facing common struggles, while

            carving a place in history.

 

I want you, friend, to know that

            someone else has felt life’s pain…

Pondered questions, learned some answers,

            experienced spiritual gain.

 

I’m not an expert philosopher,

            psychologist or pastor,

But, I’d like to offer some encouragement—

            and, isn’t that what you're after?
