Teach my heart, Lord.

Teach my heart, Lord, To sing your praises Because troubles of life Invade my soul.
Teach my heart, Lord, To see your beauty Because life is full Of dirty broken jars.
Teach my heart, Lord, To trust in your faithfulness Because all else in life Fails to be faithful.
Teach my heart, Lord, To love like you love Because your love Is persistent, unfailing, and true.
Teach my heart, Lord, To hold fast to your truth Because Satan will tempt me To despair. *photo credit goes to an awesome friend of mine. ;)

Garnished with Green

The trees garnished with green.

It makes my heart begin to sing.

Even though dark days cover my soul,

Because of Crime and Punishment

I must read for school.

Yet sunshine speaks through the cloudy sky

As it imparts windows of light

And sweet fragrance of hope appear in sight.

Art with Words



Procrastination/College life

I write a poem
check my email
Just to pass the time
Read another blog post
Play around
Waste some time
everything will be just fine
We've always got tomorrow

Tomorrow comes
But I've got tomorrow
So I'll just wait a little longer
I'll bake some cookies
Write a letter
Clean the house
And smile because
There is always another tomorrow

Tomorrows come and go
And I have nothing to show
I did a little here
I did a little there
I read a little
Slept a little
But still no paper I fear
I said there was another tomorrow

There is no more tomorrows
My paper is due today
I panic
I cry
I say I'm gonna die
I wasted all my tomorrows
And I still don't have a paper
came and went now it is today.
