Email Poem | Today's Poetry

 Grasping Hope and not straws
Because He came to be for me
For one and all not vanity
Simply put to carry out
What many fear to talk about

More shame than fear yet in our cries
We lose our chance cutting what sighs
For every soul that walks about
This planet ours less Him more out

Our strength fails us and in our weakness
He comes to see less of completeness
Whispers still, dear child of mine
Your sinful state will draw the end of line

The lineage that birthed each one
Of ADAM and Eve and too their sons
From East to West and South to North
Such chains of slaves rattled abort

Yet drunken states of greed take hold
Not of bars but stranglehold
Keep pockets more filled than empty
Filled of dreams but not of plenty

Make haste and listen well
There come a time as many fell
To death not Life for I Am He
That made The Way put quite plainly

No degree of scholar will
Open gates or Heavens fill
The rooms of mansions I have built
For faith in Me is worth thyself

Your riches here upon this Earth
Have been because I gave such worth
But this too will not buy in
Past the gates because such sin

Yours to lose but you still chose
To walk away of me let go

and so again you grasp at straws
Drenched of loss that slowly naws
The last life line I throw this day
The last of Hope you parted ways
