Parched by the winds of time
My tounge and throat long to taste
A refreshing drop of truth's moisture
that soothes my secondary life
I was hatched from situations unknown
Yet seen to be a treasure non the less
Cast astray to the dunes of eternity
By which my character has grown
Into manhood so uncertain
That I wander in this wilderness
Searching for something to soothe my thirst
And wash away my doubt hovering as a curtain
Suspending the light of day
from bringing me hope
Casting a form of Darkness over my being
which scorches my flesh at bay
Then upon the embers I cast my gaze
where truth is nailed and all can see
My freedom bound and bleeding there
Giving me a river of life for all my days

Excellent! This is a great example of your search for faith. I like these lines the best:
"where truth is nailed and all can see
My freedom bound and bleeding there
Giving me a river of life for all my days"

Good one jfreak!

Thank you so much all of you, Especially you devine. Your words are an encouragement. Especially since this is my first poem after in a about six weeks of "famine". Thank you again.
