Freestyle Friday: Poem

This is a poem I wrote in the Spring of 2013, which was the end of my junior year. I wrote this in one of my creative writing classes. At this point I had read about Jesus but hadn’t truly accepted him. I was living and striving in sin… I thought for sure that God would never want me talkless of loving me. Well, praise God for His grace and mercy upon my life!

The title of the poem is “Savior”

Disclaimer: I dabble with poetry; I’m no Shakespeare.

Savior

My savior once walked amongst us,

teaching us how to live:

patience, obedience, and love;

to spread truth,

to fight for justice,

to give our all

now and forevermore.

These are the rules he gave.

These are the lessons he taught.

My savior used to walk with me,

now I just walk alone.
