Seeing God In Poetry

I like to write poems about the things

That I do daily and see others do.

I like to stress that through it all

God is there and will see us through.


Many people don’t care about poetry,

But my dad used to read poems to me.

I really enjoyed hearing and reading poems,

So now I enjoy writing them as you see.


God, I pray that some of the poems I write

Will somehow lead others to you.

Then as those people serve you daily,

Others can come to know you too.
