Email Poem | Today's Poetry

 Saving Josh
Years of church all swept away
At just 14 he'd have his way
To leave behind the sacrifice
That bled for Josh by world enticed

Darkness took hold of child soon man
Young man to path where all the damned
Become now slaves that waste away
Become so lost not found this day

Rejection played its role for years
Drugs became all that appeared
To mean something, beyond loved ones
Beyond the reach of GOD and Son

But time would change as it is held
By one greater than one in Hell
As arms would reach into darkness
Lighting this void of emptiness

Truth became what now is lived
Mercy rained of drops to give
A new beginning to such ends
For GOD does more than ear to lend

Hands now form what Josh desires
A need to be, to now inspire
Those still lost as once was he
Shackled to sin, Jesus set free
