Top of the Hill

Top of the Hill

A Poem by SmittyJas

It was late this evening

about 8:00Pm

and we drove to the top of the hill

in the cemetery

Where I found this statue

Of My beloved Savior Jesus Chriet

Oh the blessing I did feel

From being on top of the hill

Remembering Calvary and the 2 thief

and my Savior between

Saying today you will be in paradise with me

Because of his faith he was saved

and for you my friend that is all it will take

a little faith in Jesus Christ

and you shall be saved from sin and Death.

I love this piece it is short brief but powerful the most powerful message that can be conveyed to people in the world please do see the misspelled word in the first lines "Where I found this statue Of My beloved Savior Jesus Chriet" .... In overall I love it.

To give glory to the creator is a true act of faith... This is wonderfully a wonderfully written message of hope. Thank you for sharing.

Your faith really shines through in this poem. I like how the reader can tell how strongly you feel.
It's also very well written, it flows well.

Here are a few notes:
- "Jesus Chriet" -> "Jesus Christ"
- Loved the two lines "Oh the blessing I did feel/ From being on top of the hill"
- "and the 2 thief" - it's better to write out numbers, at least numbers up to ten.
- In my opinion, it would be easier to read if you added the following punctuation: "in paradise with me(.)" and "will take(:)"

On a different note: How did you manage to insert a photo into your text? I'm only able to upload the little picture next to the title.
