A soul just like the rest of us. trapped in a world so bland, so tasteless. May colors paint our world with neon. May we all find that hidden key. The minds we once had as children ran so wild and loud! As if life as we knew it then would be the same forever. But... we were wrong weren't we? My dreams aren't even a place of the impossible anymore, they're empty, leaving my body with enough rest to begin the next day just the same as the last.
This was a Joe Cole challenge. Juneau I have chosen you to make a poem about because your bio. I feel is very easy to relate to and holds some emotions within itself. Oh and I think your name makes a great title (I don't know what it means but it sounds cool.)
Joe Cole's Challenge I wanted to take Pen my thoughts on paper to share The first of its kind for me To share my life story in a poetry
My life's story I am and going to tell To share a piece of my heart just as well
So I sit down thinking, what I could share? The memories come back my soul to bare
It's been a long time since I connected Reached behind those walls which have my heart protected I bury deep and I can see I've made peace with my past so I can feel (nothing)
Those long moments buried in memories Where a little girl embarked on her life journey.
A difficult child she was proclaimed Oft would break her parents to tame Rebellious and free she wanted to break free Find out the reasons to all her queries
Answers were not that forthcoming Sheltered a life she lived, was her feeling But evil had other plans, for as soon as she set foot on alien shores All the monsters came tumbling out of closed doors.
Life wreaked in havoc Betrayed by friends Poor judgement and bad decisions Made her profane The vicious vortex kept her in spin Salvation looked like a distant dream
Anger at the world made her lash out Though she was successful, inside she was a doubt If I keep my exterior a fake I can survive longer than it takes. She kept her life a make believe She had no friends her heart to relieve.
She looked for love in wrong places Broke her heart on few of the ***** Yet not a single of those lads Took courage to love her a tad Her heart felt the ache and longing Wanted to understand why it was failing
Till one fine day, down in the dumps she called out in despair Begged on heaven gates for her soul to repair Save her from the vortex that would drown Stop the angry world on her to frown
Christ's redeeming light came to her aid Broke the ******* and her sins forever bade That day she turned to her Christ her light Only He could be her heart's delight. All wrong relationships fickle in her sight She bid darkness forever goodnight
Now her life is just a day to day story Through her love and pain give Christ glory The demons and monsters keep surfacing from time to time But for her Christ's light will always shine.
Give hope to those in despair and pain Heaven's dearest treasures to gain Share Christ's love and unyielding hope Be grateful for all she has and more.
Treasure every relationship in Christ profound He alone blesses, His graces abound Though I make mistakes I'll try not to loose sight Know what is wrong and from evil take flight
While on this earth I'll tarry so long Yearning to sing my heavenly song. When my time is up I'll fly to HIM Free at last His perpetual praises to sing!
The story of my life, being saved by Jesus through Faith. I am a Catholic, but never understood this till I made Jesus my personal Lord and Saviour.
This is the 1st time I thought of taking Joe Cole's challenge. For me it is not a challenge but an opportunity to witness to Christ's redemptive love and saving grace. Please give me your feedback on how I fared.
