A Poem by PoetryofProvidence

I found you in the Mountains

and her streams

not among     cherished traditions

where   mankind   clings 

but in the songs    of the meadow larks

within the forest      and the valley's   parks

Oh how excellent are your ways   my beloved

and the course you set         is always true

your reflections give light         just like the sun

to follow you  is the path      I'll always choose

My heart swells     as the floodgates of the rivers

as a torrent of waters       which are undammed

its flow like the      tidal's     power the oceans

my attention is riveted     by their demands

Among men shall I find      none like you

or the spectrum      of talents you possess

the seeds of inspiration       do they empower

and it's influence I      wish always to  express

You mind moves swift          as waves of Light

their energy is formed   and fired by  thought

your influences   governs life by its commands

and the trails of life        are in them wrought 

Unable am I    to ignore      all that is you 

and the abuses      from which I have been torn

that drives and strives     excellence to pursue

to escape the slumlords       where I was born

Romans 8:4-6

New International Version (NIV)

4 in order that the righteous requirement of the law might be fully met in us, 

who do not live according to the flesh but according to the Spirit.

5 Those who live according to the flesh have their minds set on what the flesh 

desires; but those who live in accordance with the Spirit have their minds set

on what the Spirit desires.6 The mind governed by the flesh is death,

but the mind governed by the Spirit is life and peace.
