“Why Jesus” poem #fbf

Here’s a video of me reading a poem that I wrote 12 years ago for a K-LOVE radio contest & uploaded to YouTube for submission. 😃

Lend Me Your Hope #poem

This poem was in my memories today so I wanted to repost it 😁

Lend me your hope for awhile,
I seem to have mislaid mine.
Lost and hopeless feelings accompany me daily,
pain and confusion are my companions.

I know not where to turn;
looking ahead to future times
does not bring forth
images of renewed hope.
I see troubled times, pain-filled days,
and more tragedy.

Lend me your hope for awhile,
I seem to have mislaid mine,
Hold my hand and hug me;
listen to all my ramblings,
recovery seems so far distant.
The road to healing
seems like a long and lonely one.

Lend me your hope for awhile,
I seem to have mislaid mine.
Stand by me, offer me your presence,
your heart, and your love.
Acknowledge my pain,
it is so real and ever present.
I am overwhelmed
with sad and conflicting thoughts.

Lend me your hope for awhile;
a time will come when I will heal,
and I will share my renewal,
hope, and love with others.
