Here’s another poem from our writer @miloapril. It’s long but worth reading! Best read on our Facebook page or at www.thewordspace.mobi
Now I seen hurt
stared death in its eye.
I’ve born sorrow
I’ve been helpless
seen many people cry,
I’ve been hopeless
I’ve been fearful,
Was blind to the truth!
I was fed lies,
because I lacked identity.
So I looked for approval,
got indulged in sin
is there a heaven for a thug?
I must be getting in!
Until it hit me
there must be something more to this life,
up until now I got involved with endless strife.
My eyes are filled with tears as I write this,
I know so many people who share the same problems
they cry at night hoping to get an answer
But its eating them up from the inside,
something like Esophagus Cancer.
But I found hope and I’m willing to share it,
it’s Jesus Christ
He can carry your burden
call Him a Supplier,
because He supplies love to the needy
and heals the hurting.
He supplies strength to the weary
His Patient and Kind
He’s too much to fathom
He blows my mind,
He has a Father in Heaven
His death on the cross,
makes Him my Father too.
Now I’m a father figure,
got a nephew I can be a father to.
But what good is that if it’s not done in love?
my sole purpose is to imitate the One whom I’m madly in love with
I’m a role model, got younger people and even older folks looking up to me
but I don’t want you to be like me I want you to be like Christ!
I’m just merely a man, filled with flaws
but until my dying breath I will fight for the cause
Father, my earnest prayer is that they can have a Heart like Yours!
