Okay, I guess I’ll post in this thread when I remeber too! LOL.

Here is my latest poem. Critique and enjoy!

 

True North

It seems that all the world has lost it’s directions
All sorts of excuses, all kinds of protections
Against the True North
And here I am, lost in all this confusing chaos
In the questions whirled, in a tempest toss’d

Is all they like out there confusion in dense fog?
Through muddy and dark sidetracks and switchbacks slog
Where is a compass?
I want to know where I am going on this road
Am I on the narrow path to my abode?
Where is a compass?

There is a True North
The never-changing absolute instruction
The go-to, no substitute direction
There is a North Star
For them all both the great and the small
The Right Path to take, and that’s all
All that I will need
My only True North

On Earth there are really only two ways up above
In search for destiny, quest for lasting love
Searching for a home
The One ends in eternal glory with the Son
The others in punishment for what we’ve done

To ride that highway that is wide most are hasty
The faithful, those who take this road are in safety
They have a Guide
Those riding the way that is wide endanger
The Wrath of the King, be to Him like a stranger
Without a Guide

Christ is a True North
The never-changing absolute instruction
The go-to, no substitute direction
Christ is a North Star
For them all both the great and the small
The Right Path to take, and that’s all
All that I will need
My only True North

Christ is my True North
Confusion reigns, but He is my only guide
To land me safely on the other side
Christ is my North Star
I’ll navigate this insanity
With His help arrive at His city
All that I will need
My Only Truth North

Psalm 119:11
Your word I have hidden in my heart,
That I might not sin against You.
