If Jesus Were My Pen Pal


If Jesus were my pen pal,
Every letter’d be a prayer
I’d write in pen and cursive
As if He’d actually care
I’ll admit I would be nervous,
Conversing with the Lord
I’d think of many questions,
But none I’d dare to pose
Cause I can hold a letter
Just as easily as most
Any answer’d be concrete
Like a bullet to the head
It wouldn’t be so serious
But my faith would soon be dead
Seeing’s not believing
Though it makes for damn good proof
And proof is not a thing of faith
It’s evidence that man’s aloof
So if He were my pen pal,
I’d say “hello up there!
I thank you for my daily bread”
Then modestly, I’d end my prayer.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
