Sovereign Lord Jesus

Sovereign Lord Jesus

Tread lightly in a world so unkind
just know Jehovah our God is always near 
he knows all your fears and your pains
even in darken dreams 
things are never what they seem 
when it comes to dreams,

Under the snow white roads is where one had
walked long ago
Speak gently to all the ears that hears
he would tell them about his Father 
Jehovah our God who loves us very much
who hears every word that is ever said
when you write down all your feelings
give it your very best,

Give it all your might to live a life that is right
in Gods eyes and he will keep things bright 
even in your darkest hours
Like the stars in the midnight sky that shines on high
just know Jehovah loves you 
when your heart is tarnished in pain
never give up on his Love,

Keep on Planting seeds doing good deeds
that will grow and never get old
Oh, how his spirit will run deep into your soul
that will spark your spirit 
Keep your young mind clean so when it fallen to dust 
your soul will be given to your first and true Love,

Lilly is my name 
this is what I write 
I am a woman that is white as snow 
I lived a life of pain that ran in darkness
I had been lost sometime ago
Jehovah is the one who is now in control of my soul
I hardly knew my my mother or my father
I was very young running from life that gave me pains,

When my own Mother and Father 
hurt me so bad I felt my life shatter like glass
it put my heart on the run 
but when I grown up in to womanhood
I realized she is the woman
that did given birth to me,
so my life I think her for the gift of letting me live,

But her lies about my life 
still runs in my mind
it cuts me deep like someone put a knife to me
her own darkness is all see ever known ,
I gave my heart to my Sovereign Lord Jesus 
and to my God Jehovah to wash me clean ,

They both had watch me grow like a Father should 
the spirit of true love has given me the strength
to forgive all who has hurt me
and given me something to live for
even in this world of darkness.

Hi Judy, In poetry, a sonnet has 14 fourteen lines and is written in iambic pentameter. Each line has 10 syllables. It has a specific rhyme scheme and a “volta” or a specific turn. Also, please check for grammar as usual. Nice effort but let us try to be correct. Good effort. Also, visit my website as the Lord has given me www.jesuschristvisitation.net and the book Jesus Christ the Messiah Visitation: Nature and Bible Poems. Be blessed and God Bless. Amen
