A Child of God


What if you were responsible,
a child of God to Raise?
How would you go about it?
What would be your ways?

What if you were chosen,
a child of God to guide?
Would you lead them on the truest path,
and never turn aside?

What if you were asked,
a child of God to nurture?
Would you feed their soul,
with only the best, for sure?

What if you were assigned,
a child of God to prepare?
Would you know which way to lead?
Would you handle with great care?

What if you were appointed,
a child of God to train?
Would you make sure only the best things,
ended up inside their brain?

What if you were obliged,
a child of God to discipline?
Would your goal in all correction,
direct them away from sin?

What if you were tasked,
a child of God to teach?
Would you carefully chose each lesson,
with a worthy goal to reach?

What if you were honored,
a child of God to love?
Would you love them heart and soul,
as a child from above?

If you had to raise Jesus,
the original child of God!
Would you be up to the challenge?
Would you do the best you could?

So now look upon yourself,
A child of God you are!
You have a responsibility!
No worthier goal by far!

It is up to you to raise,
and up to you to guide.
You are responsible and chosen,
for the child of God inside!

It is up to you to nurture,
and up to you to prepare.
You are asked and assigned,
for the child of God in there!

It is up to you to train,
and up to you to discipline.
You are appointed and obliged,
for the child of God to be free from sin!

It is up to you to teach,
and up to you to love.
You are tasked and honored,
for the child of God .. from above!

Nature

The beach it stretches on and on ...
The sand, the waves they crash upon,
The sun it bleaches clean and white,
The beach a treasure in my sight.

The river runs and on it flows ...
I sit beside it and on it goes,
On a lazy afternoon,
I know it will be gone too soon !

I find a hole and crawl down in it ...
Untold secrets lie within it,
Mother Earth holds me near,
I know that I need feel no fear.

The hills they rise and roll away ...
The wind stirred grass on a summers day,
A living blanket covers the ground,
A world of wonders to be found.

The mountains rise up to the sky ...
The clouds caress them way up high,
The forest drapes the land in green,
Then winter paints a snowy scene.

A fellow creature to be my friend ...
To know me from beginning to end,
To live and help and lend a hand,
But most important, to understand !

The sun it rises then it falls ...
An awesome joy to walk natures halls,
I love these things with all their treasures,
I love all these things with full measures.

FRIENDSHIP

Friendship like a candle,
Burning in the dark,
A fragile thing to handle,
So tenuous the spark.

A cheer it brings,
To dark and gloom,
A bit of warmth,
Into a room.

Beware the wind,
That dares to take,
The glow within,
For nothings sake.

The dark of night,
Does not abide,
The glow and warmth,
At candleside.

To snuff the light,
'Twill be persistent,
To make the dark,
Of night consistent.

So guard ye well,
When the glow is found,
for nasty breezes,
Are all around.
