I Want To Write A Poem That Says


From the beginning adversity
has been lingering on our
necks; Lives were broken and
continues to be. People chirp
long hours with their tears
transformed into rivers of
death. I want us to change
all that, i want us to heal
and be merry. I want those
rivers of our tears to run
dry. I want to write a poem
that says all will be well,
but words but words.

The world is full of meat and drink,

In every Christian kind of place.... Read complete »
