WHY DO I NEED YOU LORD

WHY DO I NEED YOU LORD Existence framed, for we do ask. Why do I need you, Lord? This catacomb. This human mask. The emptiness is underscored. You breathed first breath, into my lungs. Why do I need you, Lord? And later sent, dove-flaming tongues, to breathe on me. My spirit soared! You watched my thoughts. You showed me sin. Why do I need you, Lord? You gave me rules so I could win, by claiming Jesus as my sword. For you died, and did rise again. Why do I need you, Lord? At the right hand of God, You reign. Our salvation bought by this accord. When sorrow knocks me to the floor. Why do I need you, Lord? For my belief, will make me strong, whilst tears, at night, can’t be ignored. For You have made me passionate. Why do I need you, Lord? You also are compassionate. This earthly sorrow thus explored. Oh Jesus Christ, the lamb of God! Why do I need you, Lord? Dear sacrifice! These scars. I’m flawed. Was doomed, until the lion roared. And when this earth has passed away. Why do I need you, Lord? You will create the new earth’s day. And this, You are my great reward! 8/22/2017 Kyrielle Form

Congratulations!!! Kim co-winner number one. I was deeply impressed with your verse. for some reason it was an emotional read for me. And I'm not embarrassed to say I even shed a tear. There was something about your and Carol C. rhymes the deeply impressed and touched me. And the thought process was reminisce of my ideology and writing style. In essence gave me exactly what I was looking for. Thank you for your entry again. "There's praise in words and words in praise" James Edward Lee Sr
