Our Lives are Passing Times

by Grace 7. November 2017 10:42

Hey everyone! Today I finally have some of my own inspiration to share with you! 

Let me know what you think!

 

Our Lives are Passing Times

The years are flying quickly by,

And time is flying fast;

And someday that is coming soon,

Our lives here will be past.

What have we done with what we have

To make our lives worthwhile?

Have we reached out to troubled souls?

Or giv'n the world a smile?

God's given so abundantly,

More than we'll ever know;

The least that we can do for Him

Is His great love to show.

Our lives are spent most selfishly-

In gaining for our pleasure,

And though things we get or want aren't 'bad',

It's all just earthly treasure.

And while we're  spending all our time

Enjoying what we've got,

We forget the ones who really

Haven't got an awful lot.

God's given so abundantly!

The least that we can do

Is to reach out with what we've got

to help a soul or two.

It isn't truly thankfulness

To hide with all our stuff,

And then ignore the ones

Who haven't near enough.

We would not have anything

If it weren't bestowed by God,

So we should help the weary souls

Who harder paths now trod.

You can't bring earthly things to heav'n,

And soon I'm sure you'll find,

It matters not what we'll bring with us

But what we'll leave behind.

 

And hey, just for the fun of it, if you can tell what rhyme scheme I used, comment below and let me know! Perhaps I'll do a post on rhyme scheme soon.

 

Now let's hear from you!

Did you like the poem? Any suggestions on how to make it better???

Troubled Waters

by Grace 30. May 2017 23:38

This is something that I sat down and wrote a few moments ago. I tried to incorporate a strong theme of water into it. I also tried a new little rhyme scheme other than the usual alternating rhyme for lines - ABABB.

 

Troubled Waters

When storm clouds roll across the sky

When thunder fills the air

Remember, Christ's your shelter

You can take your refuge there

God will always keep you in His care.

 

When troubles swirl about you

At a speed that feels insane

Remember, Christ is with you

And that He can ease your pain

Dance with joy and laughter in the rain.

 

Remember that these waters full

Of doubt and pain and fear...

They do not last forever--

For a short time they are here.

And after trials blessings will appear.

 

Now let's hear from you!

Did you like the poem? Did I do a good job of incorporating a strong theme of water? Any suggestions as to how I could change it to make it better? Did you enjoy the abnormal rhyme scheme? Do y'all know what a rhyme scheme is??? Let me know your thoughts!
