Help Me to Die

Hello, blogging world! I wrote this poem during Super Summer and totally forgotten I'd written it. But I looked it over again and realized it was a good enough poem to publish. I wrote about my own walk with God and how I desperately need Him to influence my desires.

Yesterday, I thought nothing could cave me in.
But today, I'm ruined, stuck in sin.
I still can't believe I ever thought that
I could do it by myself.
You're my only hope
Through all my doubts
 
Oh, Lord set me free
From all my insecurities
Let me lead
A life that will be true to you
Please be
All I see
In a world with so many worthless things
Please hear my desperate cry.
Help me to live for You
But first, help me to die.
 
 
It's harder than it sounds--dying to yourself so you could live for God. But with God, it is possible. I hope you like this poem!:)

  3. I really loved this! You are really talented. The only "poems" I can ever write are free verse because I have so much trouble with rhyming :)
