2017 poems

What's it like

To be you,

Inside this world

That could be

Very cruel

That motions

Run inside my heart

It tears the things

I dearly love

Completely apart

What's it like

To be so close

To the surface

Of time

Just use your


And it'll begin

To open up inside


That I dearly

Need to find

If I took a

Journey through

Your mind

What would it say

Would it tell me 

To open up my

Soul and never

Let it go

Or would it

Tell me to get


And go find

A much better

Life and home

The choice is yours,

Only you can decide

On what you really 

Want in this life

That will forever be

Run by Jesus Christ
