I WRITE BECAUSE

I WRITE BECAUSE If there's someone who reads my lines, the scriptures that I quote. If question, or accept new thoughts, pray poems ... give them hope. Hope, to victims of drug abuse, child abuse, neglect, rape. To those due to pigment of skin, centuries ... victims of hate. Comfort, to those who've made choices, forever they regret. Abortions, lives killed in action, sins ... pray someday forget. Hope, to all those whose lives' shattered, and can't get past the pain. Whose stress, plus just daily living, makes efforts ... feel in vain. Scriptures, the basis of conclusions, Bible Topics researched. Many overturned teachings, that in youth ... I learned in church. If there is anyone who reads, thoughts opposite to their own. Bible concordance confirms God's truths, as if by Him ... they're shown. Only want to share Bible truths, with meek hearts, opened wide. To aid them in discovering, "New Truths" ... I found inside. Hope they will know I write because, entirely to God's praise. That I have offered trust in God, behind each thought ... and phrase.

Thanks for appreciating that last line. If put this poem on the back of my book in the works, I hope it indicates what they can expect inside...stuff about rape, love, loss, etc...might scare them away. LOL Thanks for visiting!

oh! I appreciate that more than you can imagine. This was important to write to me. If put on the back cover of a book if I get the courage to try to do, would it turn folks away or encourage them to read, or to preachy, hope..not

Hi Barbara, Glad to see that you are inspired to write again! Sometimes it takes awhile for thoughts to "cook" until a poem is created. Thanks for sharing. - Gail
