Poem about a tortured mind

by Jeff


O plague, the darkest hour
It comes upon you, you duck, you cower
Thy wings to spread the moonless night
Your shackles bind, and dig, sure, and tight
In the deepest chasm, you show your fangs
One’s visions clear, thy bind, the same
Some two, some three, some four and more,
To see things pass, and come before
They bite, they sting, to show, to shame
You, the chosen, you, to blame
To run, to flee, no place to hide
You grip the ghosts that do abide
The light you seek, you surely find
To slow the beast, a tortured mind
You seek the answer, to him above
It is a gift, was sent, of love
To ask the question, how can it be
His only answer, the love of thee

Forgiven by God Poem


Yesterday I was a taker
Selfish were my works
Yesterday I was a liar
So many I have hurt
Yesterday I was a cheater
I cared for my own needs
Yesterday I was a hater
Many races, many creeds
Yesterday I was a killer
With my car I took a life
Yesterday I was a pagan
God was vacant in my life
Today I found a reason
A purpose for my life
Today I read a story
That spoke to me inside
Today I heard a message
One of hope, one of love
Today I found a savior
Someone to lift me up
Today I prayed to Jesus
For the first time in my life
Today I was forgiven
Today I am alive

I am Sinner

This jail I've built myself
has no locks or bars.
It holds but one inmate.
There are no prison guards.
A prisoner of my fear.
I'm insecure and cold.
An isolated spirit.
A lonely tortured soul.
Persistently I think,
my sins, they vex me so.
I loathe the man I've been.
The seeds of hate I've sown.
Loved ones I have hurt
along a selfish path.
I see so little worth
in the mirror looking back.
Tears roll down my cheeks.
My head I hang in shame.
I drop down to my knees,
and thus begin to pray.
"Dear Father in the heavens,
I am sinner, hear my words.
As night becomes the day,
I've nowhere else to turn.
As lowly as I am,
with Your Light I feel anew.
With Your love, fill my cup.
Know my words are true.
Dear Father up above,
I am sinner, guide my soul.
Through the Son I pray today,
let Your Spirit show.
Forgive my sins, for I forgive
those that tread on me.
My flesh and bone, my heart and soul,
I lay down at Your feet".
As I arise I realize,
all things wash away.
My first birth was into sin,
my second into grace.
Glory, He is with me,
for I can't deny His Love.
A Love so pure and limitless,
He'd sacrifice His Son.

THE GARDEN - A Christian Poem

by MaryAnn Fear
(Akron, Ohio)

I was but dirt. He made me whole

He gave me breath, life, and soul

I repaid him by eating the fruit of the tree

That was, I knew, forbidden to me.

I stole, wasted, cheated, and lied;

Yet on the cross for me He died.

He gave the wonders of the world to me.

I was blind, I would not see.

Still He waited patiently

And I now finally realize

Life without Him would be my demise.

I know one day I will drink the sweet wine.

The fruit of heaven's gardens all be mine.

MaryAnn Fear

Note from Katherine T Owen

Thank you MaryAnn.
God blesses you and loves you.

Does A Guardian Angel Write?
by: Jane Johnson

I love this poem!

Did you write it with me in mind? It seems like it.

Do you ever feel as if someone (a guardian angel) else writes your poems? When an idea comes to me I feel him thinking and writing along with me.

Thank You.

"One thing that struck me was the stripping of ego in the work. Most of us have a comfy ego façade, but weakness and disease tore Katherine’s away. The poems in Be Loved Beloved come from the heart."
