God has blessed me right from the start
From birth to now, he's the only reason I live
I love God with all of my heart
To you, my Testimony I will so freely give

Born, this baby was very blue
When I was born, my cord was wrapped tight around my neck
Then yellow, Jondis, a bright hue.
But I still lived on, but these wonders are just a speck.

When two, I was in a car wreck
Police and everyone said I should have died!
My mom's, dad's, and my life on deck!
But because God's grace, this toddler was the joy and pride

Then when two, I had a great fall
I fell hard, head first, my neck should have broken!
cause of God, I live to tell all!
God has saved my life, and I tell you Im not jokin!

That fall I had, left its small mark
I became epileptic, from 5 till I was ten
But God cured me, we're still in the dark
of how it left, only God could put it to its end

Then when in my later teen years
I became depressed, and sad and not my normal self
This teen girl's eyes, were filled with tears
I forgot God, and let him collect dust on the shelf

But God sent me a big brother
though far away, he has saved me from suicide.
My brother, was like no other
He helped me get out of my dark shell where I did hide

thankful for my brother in heart.
Always and forever, I shall be his little sis
But yes God I know took his part
In us meeting , and sharing our life's true morphasis

Yes, God blessed me right from the start
God is so awesome. He's one of the few things I got
I serve Him with all of my heart
When Im asked, how could I serve? I ask, How could I not?

I truly believe angels are right here on earth... no wings.. simply humans with angelic hearts of gold.... God works in mysterious ways...

I have to say that I'm pleased to see religious poetry on the forum. Little sister, you do well in everything you try.

I love the last line, Gentle Soul.

How exactly are you two related? You don't appear to be biological siblings from what you posted.

Hey Gentl,

Truly a cool poem. You might want to work on choosing different words or trying different ways to say a certain thing. But you definately ended this poem great. It slows down a few times but the biggest challenge i think all poets face is closing strong. You definately did that. You pulled the whole poem together with that last line. Bravo on that point.

I really love this poem. It is not only uplifting and inspirational but your final line was like a breath of life to the spirit.
