A Child of God {Psalms 119:24)

Deal with your servant according to your love and teach me your decrees
And the Lord said unto me, “Rise above your own despair”
"Offer your soul unto me; I will free you of this Prison cell"
I ask Lord how can this be, “this cell is my home it is all I have left”
As suddenly as flowers bloom in the spring, I was free inside
The tears fell like two giant waterfalls cascading down my face
And the Lord ask of me, “Take pen in hand and seek what you desire”
From inside a Prison cell I was set free within; filled with the Holy Ghost
Page by page I started seeking the truth as fiery tongues filled my pages
Through the Lord a violent inmate was placed in a cell, by his grace
The man who walked out of that cell,” I am Poet, A child of God” 

This poem was written for Brian's contest

    OK I just got chills reading this. Micheal it is brilliantly beautiful. Your story is so inspiring and the ending to this whole poem just choked me up. So many can learn from you if only they will pay attention and listen to what your words are gently saying. They guide the way to a better and more peaceful place. Sorry for going on but something about this peice just really got to me. I don't think you need luck in this contest. Wonderful entry. Love and YF4L Christie

    Justice said no ... but mercy said yes ... and both are seated in the common breast of one divinity. Keep the praise and prayers flowing ... my prayers are with you always. The poet I call my friend.
