    This one was also one was kinda spontaneous, but I still have simiular feelins at the time I wrote it. Feel free to comment, critique and/or post some of your own work you’d like to share.

    Reverse the Sun

    Is there any way my dark world could change for good
    I prided my own hard-heart in hardihood
    But many the times I missed when I
    Could have done better but I didn’t try.

    I can flip calendars of crimes I’ve committed.
    I can’t remember many times I’ve committed
    To make the Son smile down upon
    This ever-wandering prodigal son

    And I stand in the face of failures I can’t erase
    With my head hung down in disgrace
    My once soft heart I have defaced
    Is there any repair for the damage I have done

    I’d take a different turn if I could
    I’d turn the world around if it would
    But I can’t undo the deeds I’ve done
    Yet still I long to reverse the sun

    I am haunted by voices every single night
    All those voices I’d rather not revive for the fright
    In scenes they show, They scream so loud
    Decrying the times which I was so proud

    And I stand in the face of failures I can’t erase
    With my head hung down in disgrace
    My once soft heart I have defaced
    Is there any repair for the damage I have done

    I’d take a different turn if I could
    I’d turn the world around if it would
    But I can’t undo the deeds I’ve done
    Yet still I long to reverse the sun

    I’d take it back if I could turn back years
    I’d never thrown those arrows or spears
    But I can’t undo the deeds I’ve done
    So I just long to reverse the sun

    I heard You, the Savior, you can take
    Away all my shame if I call upon your name
    With all the odds stacked and my sanity at stake
    I’d rather fall to my knees and cry out God please
    Help amend for the deeds I’ve done

    I’d take a different turn if I could
    I’d turn the world around if it would
    But I can’t undo the deeds I’ve done
    Yet only You can reverse the sun

    I’d take it back if I could turn back years
    I’d never thrown those arrows or spears
    But I can’t undo the deeds I’ve done
    Yet only You can reverse the sun

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

    Torchlighters

    Go! the torch must be carried on
    All the world must see flames in the eyes
    Kindled by the love of Christ
    Set your heart upon the prize
    Run until you see the eternal dawn
    Go! the torch must be carried on

    Men of God, with their souls on fire
    Bore His light in their lives no matter the cost
    Bore prison and stripes, even their lives they lost
    Words they spoke were Holy Spirit inspired
    Will we be like them with souls on fire?

    Fires they lit are burning still
    But the flames are fewer and dimmer these days
    Now is the need is urgent to be ablaze
    We need to obey, and run in His will
    Will our fires be burning still.

    Go! the torch must be carried on
    All the world must see flames in the eyes
    Kindled by the love of Christ
    Set your heart upon the prize
    Run until you see the eternal dawn
    Go! the torch must be carried on

    Children called, with their souls still in doubt
    Torn between the True Word and Devilish fear
    Torn between the needs known and the desires here
    Wordly and distracted but called out
    Will we be like torches, souls on fire?

    Fires so bright and burning high
    In the flames consume all our hindering fear
    On the smoke float the ashes of pleasures here
    We need to obey. The Return draws nigh
    We need flames our souls to fill.

    Go! the torch must be carried on
    All the world must see flames in the eyes
    Kindled by the love of Christ
    Set your heart upon the prize
    Run until you see the eternal dawn
    Go! the torch must be carried on

    Torches aflame in the shadow
    Out in dangers running not fearing the foe
    ‘Til the end enters this age, burning souls know
    We’ll never be quenched, for the One we follow
    Never dies. He set us afire.

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

    Beautiful! I love the words. The rhyme sometimes seem strange, and I lacked the meter, but it’s still beautiful, and not every poem have to contain rhyme or meter after all šŸ˜‰

    May God will use it to encourage other believers to be faithful to the LORD and obey.

    Be faithful unto death, and I will give you the crown of life. (Revelation 2:10, ESV)

    Thank you for your input and welcome to the thread! šŸ™‚

    Yeah, some of my rhymes in this one weren’t perfect. And, to be honest, most of the time I write without an “proper meter” (i.eĀ  iambic, Trochaic, Dactylic, etc.) in mind. Maybe I should do that more often. . .

    I sure hope and pray it does! Thank you for posting that verse too! šŸ™‚

    Watchmen (Sound it Loud)

    Watchman, sleeping at your post
    Heart unguarded and unaware
    Lives go drifting right on past
    Souls supposed to be under your care

    Watchman, do you even know
    Sentries are called to sound the alarm
    Warning of the Enemy and saving souls
    City’s saved from evil and harm

    Watchmen, do you still stand guarding the wall?
    Will the King find you to be faithful,
    Fervent for the lost to be found?
    Watchmen, lift the trump hanging at your side
    Sound it loud for sinners in chaos
    All the cares and scars of this life.
    Watchmen, sound the alarm, loud be your call
    For the Eternal One returns and time shall be no more.

    Watchman, holding up the horn
    Wanting yet wavering to blow
    Don’t wait. Faithful you must warn
    Those who are captive of the foe.
    Souls soon to be sold into slav’ry
    Due soon to be doomed to the dungeon forever
    Need know there’s salvation at Calv’ry
    If they don’t hear they will never enter. Never.
    Watchman, this is your duty.

    Watchman, where will He find you?
    Standing awaiting His appearing
    Or sleeping soundly just inside the door? How
    Could you to be so weary of hearing?

    Watchman, You’re waiting for more
    Than to sound a warning call
    The King will surely return
    To judge all, both the great and the small
    Watchman, you’re waiting for him
    To see him appear above
    Descend to earth in power
    And bring his people home in His love.
    Watchman will you be ready
    To go when that trumpet calls?

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

    @dakota Nice job! One question–in the line “Could you to be so weary of hearing?”, is the “to” a typo?

    Hearts are like matter--they can be beaten down, torn, and burned, but they cannot be destroyed.
