Let Your Light Shine! - Poem by Queeny Gona

Punches all over; with not even a second’s halt
Followed by deep-sharp stabs, by
The so called Beloved's
Provoked this little dormant volcano
To rebel, against my Heavenly Father!
Couldn't stand the race: fight the temptations
But broke the everlasting covenant
And gave up my vows; yet hardly survived in there
Crushed to the ground, by my sinful deeds
I cried unto my lovely Father; deep down the earth
For his enlightening beam of rays
To guide me through inclined plane
So as to start afresh the journey on leveled ground;
Sprouting from the slimy mire
Nevertheless I turned unto HIM
Almighty LORD showered his grace
A new song of Joy, with a thankful heart
I sing- ' Glory to the Lord'

    As human beings with frailties, we are all likely to trip and fall. But the moment we get up and look up to Heaven, seeking the unerring guidance of the Lord, a new life sprouts and our light begins to shine! Beautiful diction powerful enough to trace the inner struggle and the final salvation! ! (Report) Reply
