NOTE: Word-of-mouth is the only advertising I have ever done and I thank those who have spread the word. I do not spend money advertising. I do not ask for donations. My poems are free so that even the poorest of the poor can be comforted with my poetry. I am pleased when others are blessed. No amount of money can surpass that. I am now blessed with over 10,000 page views per month and my prayer is that through my poetry, that this world can become a safer, more loving and respectful place - that those who do not know who Jesus really was (and still is), will come to know the peace, healing, sacrifice and grace He has given to those who truly believe in Him and faithfully follow. I pray that you enjoy my story poems...

What About Me? 6-30-06

.
What about me? Who will atone?
What can be done? I am alone.
Life's so unfair. How can this be?
Oh, what did my God do for me?

God made some to be a king,
And to a crown we often cling,
They give their law through their decree.
But what did my God do for me?

God made some to be so rich,
Some born into - without a hitch;
Wealth and power in large degree -
But what did my God do for me?

God created everything,
On earth - gave life and made it sing;
He sent His Son for us to see -
But what did my God do for me?

Yes, God came - a virgin birth,
A miracle - right here on earth!
And He holds, the only key -
Is this what God has done for me?

Jesus threw demons into swine,
And turned some water into wine.
He raised Lazarus perfectly -
But what did Jesus do for me?

Jesus slept upon a boat,
But His disciples stayed afloat -
Despite huge waves upon that sea -
But what did Jesus do for me?

As Jesus traveled on the road,
His miracles of healing showed.
He cured the blind so they could see -
But what did Jesus do for me?

Barren, worthless, not one fruit,
A fig tree stood which had no root.
Jesus spoke - withered the tree -
Is that what I have done to me?

Oh, His mercy and His grace,
He loved the world - all - every race.
Through faith in Him, He set me free!
Yes, that's what Jesus did for me.

  1. Hi Louis, I see you've got me on the map there.
    Little scary for me. But anyway, I really enjoyed this poem. It's really a blessing. I'm putting it in our bulletin. May your evening bring you many new poems to share with the world.
