A Poem: You Are Who You Are by Russell Kelfer

Poetry

You are who you are for a reason.

You’re part of an intricate plan.

You’re a precious and perfect unique design,

Called God’s special woman or man.

 

You look like you look for a reason.

Our God made no mistake.

He knit you together within the womb,

You’re just what he wanted to make.

 

The parents you had were the ones he chose,

And no matter how you may feel,

They were custom-designed with God’s plan in mind,

And they bear the Master’s seal.

 

No, that trauma you faced was not easy.

And God wept that it hurt you so;

But it was allowed to shape your heart.

So that into his likeness you’d grow.

 

You are who you are for a reason,

You’ve been formed by the Master’s rod.

You are who you are, beloved,

Because there is a God!

POEM: Don’t Quit

 

Poem – Don’t Quit

 

dont-quit9

When things go wrong, as they sometimes will,
When the road you’re trudging seems all uphill,
When the funds are low and the debts are high,
And you want to smile, but you have to sigh,
When care is pressing you down a bit,
Rest if you must, but don’t you quit.

Life is queer with its twists and turns,
As every one of us sometimes learns,
And many a fellow turns about
When he might have won had he stuck it out.
Don’t give up though the pace seems slow –
You may succeed with another blow.

Often the goal is nearer than
It seems to a faint and faltering man;
Often the struggler has given up
When he might have captured the victor’s cup;
And he learned too late when the night came down,
How close he was to the golden crown.

Success is failure turned inside out –
The silver tint in the clouds of doubt,
And you never can tell how close you are,
It might be near when it seems afar;
So stick to the fight when you’re hardest hit –
It’s when things seem worst that you must not quit.

Poem – Be Thankful

Be Thankful

Be thankful that you don’t already have everything you desire.
If you did, what would there be to look forward to?

Be thankful when you don’t know something,
for it gives you the opportunity to learn.

Be thankful for the difficult times.
During those times you grow.

Be thankful for your limitations,
because they give you opportunities for improvement.

Be thankful for each new challenge,
because it will build your strength and character.

Be thankful for your mistakes.
They will teach you valuable lessons.

Be thankful when you’re tired and weary,
because it means you’ve made a difference.

It’s easy to be thankful for the good things.
A life of rich fulfilment comes to those who
are also thankful for the setbacks.

Gratitude can turn a negative into a positive.
Find a way to be thankful for your troubles,
and they can become your blessings.

Colours Of Memories 

A beautifully written poem

Wings Of Poetry

Record#daily prompt#season 2#attempt 1

Colours of memories
Are fading away
Our journey together
Is so short
Yet we let the ego win
And allow pride capture our heart!

The keeper of, records of our breathes
Is running his pen recording fast
Record of our time left here
Least he cares of wasted part
Yet we let the ego win
And allow pride capture our heart!

Let this ice sublime away
Let the love keep us warm
Reviving dead cold is necessary
Unless we want to live with corpse
Yet we let the ego win
And allow pride capture our heart!

Whyour soul should carry with
After leaving body this heavy load?
Before merging in ocean,every river
Leaves behind,heavy stones
Yet we let the ego win
And allow pride capture our heart!

If you can win your ego someday
And crush the pride to save the heart
Then come to…
