Don’t Talk to the World (a poem)

“Whosoever shall drink of this water shall thirst again.”
-John 4:13

Don’t talk to the world
Go talk to the Lord
The One who brings us calm

Connect, reach out,
But still I doubt
There’s real relief like Him

Online’s our drug
Why not unplug
Then get your knees to bend

Your mouth is dry
Not satisfied
You find you thirst again

The world’s advice
May not suffice
Or give the peace you crave

Philosophy and
Sophistry
Cannot a desperate heart save

Don’t talk to the world
Go talk to the Lord
The One who knows you best

I promise you
It’s really true
That He will give you rest

“Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” -Matthew 11:28

The Tools That You Taught Me (a poem)

The tools that you taught me
The things I now know
I took just a seed for my
Garden to grow

The gifts that you gave me
I use them for good
But maybe not in the same
Way that you would

Was once inexperienced
My life a rough draft
Apprentice to Master
Perfected my craft

The lessons I learned from you
Hard work and sweat
The tools that you taught me
I’ll never forget
