Saving Grace

Introduction: Don’t you quit no matter how hard it is, no matter how much you struggle.
This is called life; this is the test, with its twists and turns. Make the best out if it.
We just have to believe in Almighty’s light, His saving grace and follow the Grande hope
up to the end of the tunnel, until the end of our lives.



When time gets tough, days seem long
As sometimes it does, you feel the song,
When heroes depart, hearts sink below
And most of us smile, as we feel them glow,
When past calls back to remind us of them
Some tears fall down, even out of gem.

When life gets rough, through those tough times
Just don’t give up, on hope we survive,
We wonder how everything’s still here
That’s when we believe, we have Him to share,
Faith is that bird, which reminds us at night
By singing its songs, that calls us to light

Confusions arise, when fear overcomes
Happiness glow dim, as trusts come undone,
Hearts and rules are made to be broken
In order to improve those that’s unspoken,
Some may confound the truth with the lies
That’s why He gave, us these two eyes.

You make your own choice with the dreams you shelter
That seems way uphill, just makes you stronger,
If you fall thousand times, you don’t quit the tour
You succeed one time and you reach your goal,
To some it seems hard, to you it’s the art
Some may just quit but you try and try, till the new start.

    Some-what contrite with misgivings' of plenty. But, when it comes' to love, the mistakes, you make many....Keep it all in one flow inorder to shape the rhyme. The preception that you give is the treasure we get. Take God at his infinite wisdom and though shall over come...and don't take things' so hard.(I am going to run out of space) Walk in the way's of the light and revil the Lord with all your might. (see my poem WELCOMING COMMITTE...see how it' relates' to your poem, nobroken....

    like I said on the last poem. No such thing as bad poetry. Don't let other people doubt your poetic gift. I've had so many people critique my poetry, but I've always ignored it because I'm not writing for them. I'm writing for myself. If others can't appreciate it that's their own problem. Keep writing, dear poet. That's the only thing I don't like about poetry, is some people think there is a right way and a wrong way. But there's not. Take care. Dana'lynn

    I agree with your points and I respect that, but I invite both critiques and compliments/praise...Life wouldn't be fair if only bad or good existed, extreme of anything is bad, that's why Almighty created a balance...and besides, criticism just makes you a better poet!! The greater you are, the more haters you have lol!

    you are too deep into your own poetry. and that is not to say that i was not that way once. ditch the introductions. start writing poems 20 lines or less for one year. pay attentions to your surroundings. and read good poetry. but you wont understand good poetry untill you've lived life. tell me when you get a broken heart and then i'll read you again.

    All of the points you made are true, I agree. but john, seriously don't you think you are wasting you "precious" time looking up my useless writings?? I'm sure you got big book signings to do and I really don't want to waste your time.
