I'm Back With a Few Poems

I'm back fellow bloggers! I've been super busy with school, quizzing, Bible college and other things. But now summer is here and I have once again entered the world of blogging. So after being gone for six months, here are a couple poems I have written since school has been out. Enjoy!

 The Cry of Humanity

Do you hear that?
Strain your ear to hear!

Do you hear that?
It’s the quiet hum
Of a singing spirit

Strain your ear to hear
What is that ringing?

Is it the joy of a soul?
Or a skipping of a heart?

Is it the cry of the unborn?
Or the sweet laughter of a child?

Do you hear that?
It’s the cry of humanity

It’s the tug of a skirt
It’s the rumble of a stomach

Do you hear that?
It’s the world
The hungry


It is a brick wall in the biggest city
It is a roadblock on the most important journey
It is a sorrowful thought in the happiest moment
It is hate toward the one you love
It is a consuming fire in the darkest forest
It is instinct in your weakest moment
It cannot be blasted through
It cannot be destroyed
It cannot be pushed away
It cannot be replaced
It cannot be watered down
It cannot be hindered
It can only be dealt with and overcome

Rise Above

I wrote this little poem a few months ago, but I think it describes my New Year's Resolution perfectly.

Rise above
Your past mistakes
Rise Above
The pain of yesterday
Rise Above
And discover the freedom that lies beyond
Rise Above
The world’s standards
Rise Above
What others think
Rise Above
And discover the freedom that lies beyond
The hurt
The pain
The quilt
Beyond the past
Is a beautiful future
You can’t even begin to imagine
Rise Above
And be free

All those mistakes you made last year? All those fears that hold you back? Rise above them. This year, you are going to walk by faith with fearless determination.YOU ARE FREE!!!

2014, Here I am!!!
