THE ABSOLUTE VALUE OF ME

THE ABSOLUTE VALUE OF ME

In comparison to what I used to be,

My travels have brought me to a place of promise and hope.

When determining the appraisal of this sinners’ value to be,

Make an evaluation based on my total spiritual scope.

 

Although I started this journey on faith and a simple prayer,

My road came with multiple devils and unforeseen temptation.

If it was not for the Lord guiding me through the stormy blur,

I would have continued in, yet another, dreaded sinful situation.

 

I’ve determined the value of me to be nothing without the Lord’s Grace.

Reflecting on how prayer and faith guided me through and through,

On how the love of God prepared me for whatever I was called to face.

Realizing that the absolute value of me, is simply, the total sum of the Lord’s Grace.

What wonderful faith you display. A compassionate write displayed with total conviction, for you couldnt have summed it better my friend - "the total sum of the Lord's Grace". Keep writing with soul and spirit!

Thank you for reading my poem, and thank you for your kind words. May God Bless You.

When power leads man towards arrogance, poetry reminds him of his limitations. When power narrows the area of man's concern, poetry reminds him of the richness and diversity of existence. When power corrupts, poetry cleanses.

John F. Kennedy (1917-1963) Thirty-fifth President of the USA
