NOTE: I thank those who have spread the word of my site. I do not spend money advertising. I do not ask for money. 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 about 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...

Two Worlds 3-15-09


Entangled in earthly possessions -
the world of the physical,
or free, like a bird, that's flying high -
the world of the spiritual.

I once had lived in the earthly world
of personal toil and grind;
but now I live in a different realm -
a world with peace of mind.

A world that I could never earn,
a world I'll never leave,
a world where others can live too,
if only they'd believe.

I could never leave God's world,
and return to a life of sin -
for I've lived in both these worlds
and chose the one I'm in.

Yes, there are two separate worlds.
We can only live in one.
We either build a life for us
or live for God's own Son.

Though I can reach back there to some,
I cannot pull them here.
I cannot pray them here to me,
or bend their lone deaf ear.

We alone have made the choice
in which world we are living -
and if we haven't seen God's world
we don't know what we're missing....
