GRACE

A Poem by BikerAngie

THE NEEDS SO GREAT

AS THE LIES CALL OUT TO YOU

LIKE DEMONS IN THE NIGHT

YOU KNOW THE LIES ALL TO WELL

THE LIES  OF  SHORT LIVED HIGH

THE FEELING OF EUPHORIA

SHORT LIVED YET ALWAYS BECKONING

CALLING OUT YOUR NAME IN THE WIND

PULLING YOU INTO THE DARKNESS

THE DEEP RECESSES OF DESPAIR

DEPRIVATION AND STARVATION

GLOOM AND PAIN

HURT AND DENIAL

THE END RESULT DEATH

OF SOUL, MIND, AND BODY

BATTERED AND BRUISED BOTH MIND AND SOUL

AND JUST AS IT STARTS TO GET GOOD

THE LIES TRY TO CALL YOU BACK

THE TRUTH IS LOVE AND GOD IS LOVE

IT SEEMS THE MORE GOD LOVES YOU

THE HARDER THE LIES PULL AT YOU

LYING SAYING YOU DO NOT DESERVE HAPPINESS

HE FEELS YOUR  DISTANCE FROM HIS LOVE

FEELS YOU PULLING AWAY FROM HIM

HE HEARS THE DOUBTS IN YOUR PRAYERS

THE PRAYERS LESS FREQUENT

THE DESPAIR IN YOUR VOICE

THE DISTANCE SEEMING EVER FURTHER

WITHDRAW, SADNESS ,AND ANGER, EVER PRESENT

FEELINGS OF USELESSNESS, UNWORTHINESS

HE CALLS OUT TO YOU SCREAMING HIS UNDYING LOVE

HOPING AMONGST ALL HOPE HIS LOVE CAN BE FELT

ABOVE THE ROAR OF THE DEMONS YOU FIGHT

HE CALLS TO YOU NIGHT AND DAY

TREMBLING AT THE MERE THOUGHT

OF THOSE DEMONS DESTROYING YOU

KNOWING IT IS YOUR CHOICE AND YOURS ALONE

FREE WILL

LIKE BILE RISING FROM THE DEPTHS OF YOUR SOUL

YOU FEEL THE LIES PULLING YOU AWAY

KNOWING THE ONLY THING THAT CAN PART YOU

FROM HIS GRACE

ARE THE DEMONS THAT SEEK TO DESTROY YOU

LIKE RAW SEWAGE SMELLY AND FOUL

THE LIES RISE UP PULL AT YOUR VERY SOUL

BUT IN YOU HE SEE SOMETHING IN YOU

HE SEES THE REASON HIS SON DIED

HE SEES A DIAMOND IN THE ROUGH

WORTHY OF A LOVE THAT IS PURE

THE LOVE THAT IS OFFERED TO YOU FREELY

IS LOVE WITHOUT BOUNDARIES

A TOTAL AND COMPLETE LOVE

THE CHOOSE IS YOURS AND YOURS ALONE

A GOD WHO LOVED YOU ENOUGH TO DIE FOR YOU

OR THE LIES THAT SEEK TO DESTROY YOU

A GOD WHO WOULD LAID DOWN HIS LIFE FOR YOU

OR THE DARK COLD NEEDLE IN YOUR ARM

A GOD WHO SEEKS ONLY HAPPINESS FOR YOU

OR A NEEDLE THAT LIES AND DESTROYS ALL IN ITS PATH

A GOD WHO SEEKS TO SAVE YOU

OR THE NEEDLE THAT RAGES FOR YOUR DEATH AND DESTRUCTION

THE BATTLE HAS ALREADY BEEN WON

YOU JUST HAVE TO CLAIM IT

CRY OUT HIS NAME

AND GRACE IS YOURS

"CALLING OUT YOUR NAME IN THE WIND, PULLING YOU INTO THE DARKNESS, THE DEEP RECESSES OF DESPAIR." I love this part, so dark yet beautifully written while the end picks up by glorifying God and spreading the good news. great job!

You have written you message well.

It was only once a long time ago, I was lost in despair, a teenager on the streets. I ended up being really sick afterwards and I thank God for that.

Choice not choose and you've missed an "s" at the end of one of the calls.
