A Poem by Ki

About God


How can we stay gold

When so much black surrounds us?

Coal black edges overlap the surface

Black, gold's only enemy

A plague of pain conquers

Defeated I stand

Reach out to me with a loving hand

Push the ebony curtain off

Wash me with pure hope

Clean my of my wrong

This poem is amazing. The metaphors and flow fit in so perfectly. The words stuck with me after I read it. My faith as a Christian sometimes feels weak, and I also feel as I need Him to reach out a loving hand. Very deep and emotional, excellent write.

How can we stay gold when so much black surrounds us? what a powerful-wrenching line. Also for a beginning it sucked me in just like that. This poem is real, true, and has a great meaning as well. Awesome write!!
