      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 ๐Ÿ˜‰

        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! ๐Ÿ™‚

        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.eย  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! ๐Ÿ™‚

        This one took me months to write, but I finally finished it. Critique and enjoy!!

        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.
