Favorite Quote:
-when you come to the edge of all the light you have, and are about to step off into the darkness of the unknown, faith is knowing one of two things will happen; 1. there will be solid ground for you to stand on, or 2. you will be taught how to fly

Kneel, they told me, and pray to the King…
“Close shut your eyes, my son, and open your heart.”
I never felt the peace that they were all in.
Nor could I see any flaw on my part.
My heart beat blood but was dead as a rock.
And I never did mind that it was under a lock.
Then, I felt a presence as I read on, through.
The one who sent the scripture made it a guide.
I felt it, finally! I feeling new.
Inside my heart to forever abide.

The author's comments:
I was inspired to write this poem by those people who are spiritually dead for a time in their lives, and then revive, and live with new meaning.
