This Writer’s Goal


To write what You want me to write.

            Not a word out of place,

                        Not with self-confidence,


But, trusting in You to shed light.

            Of malice or pride, not a trace.

                        Of Yours, and not my own sense.


Tone and diction can be wrong or right.

            Like an expression on a face,

                        Error has no recompense.

Why Write?


Why write?

Why not?

You and I have

learned a lot!


You share, and

I believe.

Words can, my

doubts relieve.


I share, and

you can see,

how our God has

worked on me.


He gives hope

amidst the pain.

Peace and joy,

eternal gain.


Some of us

just must express

our wonder, tears,

our thankfulness.

By words, please.


Wandering words

Thoughts occurred

Fears assured—


Heart cries

Agony sighs

Reason whys—


Visual glee

Life I see

Reason to be—


Moments, these

To capture, freeze

Opportunity, seize—


By words, please.
