A Poem by Calypso

I need your strength.

I need only what

you can give.


I can find happiness

in the presence of you.

When I allow you to be

in my life you make

everything right.


So why do I run?

Worship a new god.

Swear in your name?

Jesus I should feel more

sorry then I do.


Yet you saw me in the darkness

of nights and was there.

Depression can’t stop you.


I need you Jesus

just to live.

You are what I’m

Reaching more.

Who I want to be like.


I know you hear me,

feel my sorrow and rejoice in

my happiness.


You never left.

So then God I’m coming back

This was a good write. I agree that you need to be home. God will always accept you for who you are in your heart. Thank you for sharing.

A beautiful and powerful story. Funny how it take desperation sometime to find God. I met men who had no belief. In war and combat they find the strength to believe when death is close. I like the complete story in the poem. A very good ending to a excellent poem.
