"To be great is to be misunderstood." ((Ralph Waldo Emerson))


Jesus on every corner;
God behind every door -
I need You here, beside me -
For the world has got me on the floor

Where are you when I need you?
I'm begging; please don't leave me all alone.
You know just as well as I
That I can't do this on my own.

Desperate for Your mercy,
All I want is Your love.
I tried to get it down below...
But now I need it from above.

The Bible tells me something:
That I am Your creation.
Doesn't that fact therefore make me
Worthy of Your savlation?

I'll do anything You want of me.
In my prayers, I shall not yeild.
Even a blind man could see that,
Lord, I'm dying to be healed...

I will be 18 in exactly one month. I have only been published on this site and once in the mag. I am gonna try to push my stuff more this summer when I get a book of my high school material published. And college next year should help me get better connected and heighten my chances.

The academic and extra cirricular reputations are better at this private school than the public one in my home town which is why I initially chose this school, but it has helped my faith life greatly.

I just got the inspiration and felt the urge to write. It's not my focus in my writing but when I get that sensation I know what needs to happen. I have another poem "Thou Art Pious" that I wrote but it's not on this site because I thought it was a little over the top for TeenInk. I am just starting to explore the world of religious poetry - this was my first poem in that category.

I plan on going to college for writing - journalism or creative. Not exactly sure which yet. But I am hoping to get these things published. Who knows? =]

Wow! I'm Baptist actually. Are you really that into religion or are there other things that you want to do that are not godly? Not saying that I'm loose or whatever. I just ask because you are still young.

I'm a Roman Catholic and I attend a Catholic high school. I am surrounded by prayer every morning and often before each class starts. I just wrote one because I heard someone read a selection that had distinct rhythm and a decent rhyme scheme.
Thanks though - I'm really happy you liked it.
