God Told Me

God told me to stand on solid ground
To tell the truth and be profound
To spread the word of his kingdom to above
To spread the words of peace and love
God told me to stand on solid ground

God told me sail across the sea
Spreading the word of his mercy
In far off lands with those of evil heart
His deity his commandments to impart
God told me to sail across the sea

God told me to fly up in the sky
To read the bible and know why
This errand he had sent me on
For soon the time he gave was gone
God told me to fly in the sky

God told me his kingdom was for all
Those who repent and for him call
He said that I would be no saint
I already know that that I ain’t
God told me his kingdom was for all

God told me I would go to heaven
In a year that ends with a seven
After I’ve done all he asked
Cleared the load with which I’m tasked
God told me I would go to heaven

God told me all this when I was a teen
But I did not listen I did not gleen
For youth was all and life for living
Not for me the message giving
What god told me when I was a teen

    Lovely poem, Owen. God does speak to us in different ways...we just sometimes don't want to hear what He has to say...and yet, His love for us never fails. God bless.

    I loved this poem..It was truly inspiring to those who do not know of his love and peace and for those who do know of his love. Have a great day :) cory

    this is really neat, Owen, and I like how you had a set pattern with the first line repeated at the end of each stanza! This type of poem requires no punctuation because you use clear short phrases that do not blend into the next line!

    God wants to speak with you again. That is why so much of the poem is in Past tense. Look for the open door. Very nice poem of youthful understanding of fait
