David Meets Goliath

     And David slew Goliath
       The goliath of his cares 
        A little lad he was in stature
         But a giant at heart he is 
          He steps up to mammoth trials
           His chest with armor bare
             Knowing a thrust from this giant
              Will through him run his spear
                But the giant hearted young lad
                  Stepped up with lack of fear
                   He knows his God is with him
                     And naught can he destroy
                      So bravely go he faces
                       Old Goliath and his spear
                        And conquer he did conquer
                         As with empathy we show we care

    First before I read it. The title made me lol! It was a piece all in it self. And images flood my mind. I'm almost certain the results of this match up will be quite the unexpected.

    Oh well.I was thinking about another David. And how you would present him with your Golith through poetry. I think for you that would be quite the adventure.

    Joy, this is inspirational as many, if not all of us, meet many Goliaths in our lives! I've come to learn that I can not do it on my own, so I've learned to lean on God. Thanks for sharing this, my Sis. Much love, Annalise

    HE probably was the greatest David ever, and this is a really cool poem about him. Love your format, Joy.

    A very intelligent and well toned composition Joy - History is best utilized when construed allegorically, most practicable when applied to universal perspective that all have an opportunity to relate, or empathize with - a brilliant demonstration of how art can successfully unite ethics with History - J.A.B. %
