The poem(s) are below...




The cold wind stung my ego
As my feet darted down the corridor of nowhere
The bitter push whipped through my skin
I slithered through the arrogant open gate
I elbowed my way into the dark world
Dinning with fear and pride along the streets and sidewalks
The sounds of the dark drums and
Strumming gongs echoed from behind
Dead skulls spewing and sparkling stench water on my face
While blood mixed with gin drooled from my chest
Like a tidal wave over a coral reef
My body shaking in a convulsing sobs
Reaching a state of total darkness
I fell into a painful and tortured trance
The moon had already sunk in the sky
I could see the gaunt solitary figure of guilt
I buried my head in the mangy fear
Crawling and groaning
Searching for Freedom
Sand still punched between my head body and my soul, caked with fear
I saw pain crawling all over my being
Fear jerked to a stop when JESUS showed up
I could feel His touch even in the deepest dark
New buds of hope spring  forth
Illumination poked my doubt
With a live coal, he touched my lips,
And my eking miserable existence in the dark world turned to light
Today, I walked through the balcony of light and life
With head high and future assured
Have you got Jesus?
