Poet's Notes

Hello everyone!
This poem was written on October 25, 2013 at 11:08 pm. This poem is simply about being real. I experience sadness, I walk through times and trials of depression, I become upset, I fall angry, I lose control. I am not perfect. I have never been perfect and I will never be perfect. I make mistakes. I sin. I sin each and everyday. I am broken. I am an addict. Yet, even in the midst of all these moments, there is peace inside of me. Some days, the peace is small and hard to find, but on others, it shines so bright and to me, that's alright. There is peace and with this peace, there is joy. This peace and joy comes from the Lord, God, Jesus Christ, The Holy Spirit. Even in the midst of all these moments, I know everything will be alright for God is on our side. God is with us and He will never leave us. Through the sacrifice of Jesus Christ Our Lord, we are forgiven, changed, and saved. With God leading me, I am learning to follow Christ. The road will not be easy and it is not easy, but God is on our side. He is with us. He is always with us. He has never left us and He never will. God is on our side, each and every step of the way, giving us joy greater than we have ever known, even in the hardest times. He gives us joy and I believe He gives us joy in being real, being honest, being true. To me, this is the joy of being real.
Thank you so very much. All glory to God! May God bless you deeply and richly always!
With love,
Kevin C. Martin

The Joy Of Being Real

I know I should be happy;
There is joy in the Lord.
Yes, absolutely, there is!
In all moments,
In all times,
There is joy in the Lord!
Even in this moment,
There is joy underneath
The outside cover of depression and sadness.
That's what it may look,
That's what it may appear,
That's what it might feel,
But that's just me being real;
Opening up,
Taking off this cover
That I've been covering up with for too long.
This is me being real
And that's a part if joy;
The joy of being real,
The joy that is Jesus Christ!
May God bless you always!
