Treasure Island

Queeny Gona

(16th august,1987 / KANIGIRI)

'Eternal Life'


Blessed I am!
For, I am snatched:
Away from burning sulphur,
And my tears are swiped off

The revolt I made, against God
Will not be remembered forever
Neither had I meditated for long hours,
Nor I starved for years together for 'SALVATION'

But realized the sinful nature in me,
Knew that my good deeds count nothing: In the sight of LORD ALMIGHTY
Accepted JESUS CHRIST as my personal savior,
And had faith on the CROSS!

I was comforted; for I was redeemed from sins
By the everlasting grace of God,
My wages of sin were Paid!
I am no more in chains of sin.

    Yes committing sin is part of our lives but what we need is regretting and reshaping our individuality from our past mistakes... A good hymn in the praise of god. Well done poetess! (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

My love is like to ice, and I to fire:
How comes it then that this her cold so great
Is not dissolved through my so hot desire,
But harder grows the more I her entreat?
