Mercy

Mercy

A Poem by justjenn_2u

Instrumental euphony plays amongst us so gently
Heart is filled with a divine inspired conviction
Eyes stare upward at the monumental cross intently

Mind shutters of His body enduring such affliction
Chills cover me in remembrance of His unselfishness

Eyes fill up with tears as I am yearning to scream
“Jesus, I want to touch you and your worthiness,
May your light flow into me as a river in a stream”

You died for me and you’re the reason why I live

I admire you for your faith..I am a humanist I suppose....But we must all believe in something

Even though I am not religious myself, I can feel your faith in your words and that is moving. Very good.

I see that you have laid your entire self on the line. You have captured the point of salvation in one write. As a Religion graduate I can definitely appreciate this piece :)

Another beautifully expressed poem. You and your muse are well suited for each other.

On a lighter note, you made me look up the meaning of euphony. :)

I am not going to discuss religion...it might start a war. Your passion and sincerity are expressed very well. In the second stanza, do you mean "shudders"? Or, you could be meaning, the mind working like a camera shutter, seeing quick shots in your mind, of His body enduring such affliction. If it's shudders, I think it would sound better to say, "MInd shudders AT His body enduring such affliction." If it's the spelling you used, then "of" would be correct. Good write! Barbara

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..
