The resurrection of me


Don't believe in resurrection


then read between my tears

and you'll see God brought me back

because I was dead for years...



I killed myself along the way to the here and now

I did a few more things than I know You'd allow

I got twisted, broken, and I don't know how

but as I stand here before You, Lord, to Thee I vow...

that never will I ever die the way I used to die

and whenever my forever comes You'll carry me on high

Dead man reeling from revealing all the scars in his mind

He's concealing the real feeling that he's trying to find

I blew it and I knew it when I tried to stand alone

and it's true that without You, then I never would have grown

because what I did as a kid, it didn't banish me to hell

because if it did, God forbid...I'd have no stories to tell

but when I fell, let me tell You, there was nowhere to land

and in the cell that was my hell is when I noticed Your hand

I fetched my pen and sketched right then getting lifted from that hole

Your outstretched arms etched into my mind, my heart, my soul

You told me that You'd hold me and You'd never let me go

a heart cold did now behold someone willing to bestow

an unconditional proposition...all You wanted was my love

My submission was my admission of what I've always dreamed of

that someone, anyone, would love me just for me

now Your Son's undone my wrongs, and His blood has set me free

I was strange, slightly deranged, I didn't know where I was going

but my life changed, got rearranged as Your mercy started showing

A mind blocked, a heart locked, one once easily enticed

does now walk, does now talk, as a child of Christ

Within my sight a life so bright...Your Word I will spread

and I will write about the Light that has raised me from the dead

inside I cry


That day plays over and over, when you left me and the boys

I see an echoing, distant, silent noise

There was no goodbye, no "see ya later" letter

and though I know you moved up to something way better

it hurts my heart being so far apart

and it's harder than I thought making a brand new start

Just me and the kids trying to do it all alone

and I know I'm supposed to be a man and I'm supposed to be grown

but it pains me, you don't answer every time that I call

so I try and stand strong and I try and stand tall

but inside I cry, when you left it hit like a bomb

now I'm confined in my mind...and I miss you, mom

I love, I wait, I watch, I see


I love, I wait, I watch, I see

until my children are in trouble and they call on me
I will pull them from the water and set them free
I love, I wait, I watch, I see...

I love, I wait, I listen, I hear
until my children are calling, falling in fear
I will pull them from the water and dry each tear
I love, I wait, I listen, I hear...

I love, I wait, alert and sound
until the river of the world comes crashing 'round
I will pull my children up to higher ground
I love, I wait, alert and sound...

My children will stray from the safety zone
They'll let go of my hand and try and swim alone
The love and patience I give is the love and patience I've been shown
As Christ does for me, so must I do for my own...

I asked God


I asked God for forgiveness...I wanted gain and no more loss


and he said I've been forgiven since he died upon the cross

I asked God for a chance, and he gave me more than one

Never will I ever again live life on the run

I asked God for a change, and he let me change my ways

No more pain, no more rain, and surely no more wasted days

I asked God for something greater...responsibility

and he gave me all my children to help set my heart free

I asked God to heal the scars that seem to cut like a knife

and God, by his grace, gave me back my life...

I long to come home


Oh, Angel of Life...who gives me sweet, sweet breath


I know the battle was long against the Blackbird of Death

He used trickery and treachery to get to me in my misery

but you never fled, you stood strong instead, and gained victory that has set me free

Angel of Hope, Angel of Love

Angel of Faith, won't you lift me high above

to hallowed ground where Angel's roam

I know I'm not of this world...and I long to come home

I like all of your poems here very much. This one in particular moved me and I began to cry tears of gratefulness to God. It sounded like it came from me. I could write the same thing. I really see Jesus in your in your poems and you are testifying to His grace and peace. Selah. Peace.
