Hi Magenta,

Wow, I think I'm gonna have to return to this thread when I can have more time to totally chillax and fully focus because I went to the first page and see your poetry!! I'd love to read it, it's getting late here now and I'd really like to read what you shared but not with a sleepy head on :rolleyes:

I also have some writings here at home so another thing we have in common. Awesome :D

Its so cool to see you have writings from the 80's. I'd also like to save the good and helpful things.

a sweet melody that can be heard
bringing a beautiful song that covering my soul
spirit warming a frozen and broken hearted
can it be comfort by the gentle touch of smile?
i dont know
coz love is like a wind blow that come n go where ever it wants.
love

Love to me is a very strong feeling that comes to rest in ones heart, sometimes at very inappropriate times, but when it comes, everything changes, the birds sings a sweeter song, the flowers take on brighter hues & are more fragrant, the load becomes much lighter, the path more easily trespassed, the rain more gentle, Oh that magical feeling, how wonderful one moment and how burdensome the next, it can make your heart skip a beat, and yet bring you from the highest of highs to the lowest of lows, and never let go. Once encountered life will never be the same.

I am new here, having just joined earlier today :) I am a born again believer since 2004; the following poem I wrote in 1988.


I'm so confused
What did I do?
The Bible says I'm evil.
Have I lived most of my life
In the grips of the devil?


Why was this?
I think I know:
Insecurity had me in it's throes.
Love I was afraid to show
And so I lived in darkness.


But what is evil?
Self esteem?
Following your heart-felt dreams?


Surely God on glorious high
Takes no delight to see me cry.


His love for me I must believe
Because of Him we were conceived;
Love is where I long to be
And so live in His likeness.


But what is love?
Does anyone know
Just what it is
We're supposed to show?


What kind?
How much?
Where does it go?
Who determines our love's flow?


Are we really in control
When sitting at the wheel?
For reason still eludes me
When I think on how I feel.


Are we the same?
Are we to blame?
What forces shape our lives?


Science looks for answers
While our spirits we deprive.
Wow ! The fact u wrote this unsaved is so profound. Gods call was definitely on you. I used to write poetry before I got saved and it’s interesting how God prophetically used them. Hope to see more of your stuff! What a thought provoking poem.
