Below are the all-time best Mary Ayers poems as chosen by PoetrySoup members
The Pow'r of the Lord, as fast as a streak of lightening,
Life without him would be so frightening
His miraclous ways are decisive and quick
Giving strength and health
To the bedridden and sick
Sight to the blind with the wave of His hand
Cleansening the soul-To make a new man
With all the corruption,sorrow,and pain
Bend a knee bow down and pray-
Open your heart and it will all go away-
In the blink of an eye-
The Dawn of A New Day.
Thanks to God The Almighty
All will be shaken,not all will remain.
Wher's my daddy?Have I done something wrong?
But I'll be good ,if he just comes home
And I will stand so proud and say,
I'm a big girl now daddy I wont get in your way
I wont be mean any more ,wont kick and scream;
Or fall to the floor,Iwont whine or fuss and get you upset
I'm abig girl now daddy ,you'll be surprised I bet;
I can sit quietly while at play,daddy I promise ;
I wont get in your way;
If you come home,I'll be at my best
Am I big enough to make such a request?
Mommy said that you're up in Heaven
'Cause your name was oneof them given,
But if you told Jesus,that you couldnt stay;
And I'd ask for you back at night when I pray,
Then back to our house you will arrive-!
See mama, I told you my daddy was alive.
Between the covers of this book...
A diverse collection of when I felt forsook
Not all words are detailed to a fact,with
Serenity I've changed some,others I enact.
There are some words for which I must find
A story to tell and make it rhyme,
Some fall on paper in three-quarter time,
Others are painfully sent as a sign.
Some are worth Million$ others not one thin dime
Chapters and characters for another to design.
Venture on thru-A journey you will find..
"POETRY-IN-MOTION"-ten-thousand steps of life to climb
As like Mother-Goose only I write of the ruins
Of neglect and child abuse.
I write of Jude and The Book of Revelation
The Work-of-Art by God's Creation.
The Wrath of God and behold Salvation
And that Christ Jesus died
for this Worthless Generation-
Lonely within-lonely without;
Emptiness darkness-wandering about
Souls of the living ;
Can still be found souls of the giving
The scarceness Profound-
Trusting no one and judging all
In this man=made world
and its man made law-
A restless tribe if ever I saw
Racing to work-working to earn;
Helping no one- failing to learn-
Share not with your brother-
Part not with your pride
When all mountains crumble
leaving no where to hide;
