As In A Dream

As In A Dream

A Poem by justjenn_2u
"

Based on a dream I experienced and it speaks volumes to me.

"
As the multitudes of God's people stood non moving around me

I saw people occupied with worldly happiness whom were blind

These confounded people were symbolic of a ship lost at sea

To the right of myself and only a couple of steps ahead

Walked a man nearby whose face I was unable to distinguish

His glorious voice sang "Amazing Grace, How Sweet the Sound"

My heart cried out with vocals no person could extinguish

I began to sing "My chains are gone, I've been set free"

Though the world stood unruffled and never took notice

I knew this Man who is my Jesus would stay with me

JJ this is a wonderful write, a prose I quite enjoyed. I love the flow of the writing as it seems to catch me from the start and I think about the message which was quite pleasant. I haven't heard much from you lately but this was a welcome surprise...hugs...

tho I walk through this troubled vale,I wonder who carries my coffin,
yet I should fly these clouds,,who wears my cloak or the burdens of my family,
after I have fought this battle,who now carries my armor,sword and shield?
Thank You Father,I have come with my brothers and sisters,
Thank You Mother,Your kindness was the death of me...

Hey, Jenn! It's been a while. I hope all is well with you and yours. This is a fantastic poem. It does in fact reads very much like a dream. I like how your narrator is isolated even though he or she is surrounded by others. The narrator can see everyone, but they still take no notice of her. That sounds to me like living from day to day, busting your hump, and never getting recognized for any of your hard work. Despite it all, however, you have a greater reward in a personal relationship with Jesus. That's a lot to say in a short poem. Bravo!

I write from my heart. I follow my instinct. I live impulsively. I never feel like my feet are firmly grounded as I am a free spirit. I am a very intuitive person, sometimes to the point it hurts .. more..
