This poem is already in the Spiritual section.

Ever since I was thirteen,
I made it my routine,
to read the Bible,
like it was a Sports Illustrated Magazine.
I like to read the Holy Bible
because, it's good for me.
Plus, it's not negative like T.V.
People need to realize,
that the Bible applies,
to their everyday lives.
Everyday, I pray to God,
for making my life not as hard.
I've excepted the fact that I'm a sinner
and acknowledgement of that, makes me a winner.
But, I try my best not to sin
because morally, my soul won't win.
I try to love everybody,
to the best of my ability,
including my worst enemy.
Every first Sunday of each month, I commit in Comunion
because, I know that the fact that he died for me, is not a lie or an illusion.
Twice a week,
I mentally recite the ten commandments,
until I fully understand it.
I've been saved twice,
by Christ.
because, the evil used to get in my head like lice.
Now my soul is re-energized
and no longer scrutinized.
Now, I'm saved
and thanks to God,
my life is safely out of the grave.
I've been baptized
and had my soul reanalyzed by God.
I go to church,
to sing, clap, learn, and praise him for all that he's worth.
Remember people,
God gave you birth,
created the heavens and the universe.
The first shall be last
and the last shall be first,
make sure you people read the Bible
because, it's the basic instructions before leaving earth.

Your Pre-Flight instructions.  Good one!  As long as some people don't think of it as an in-flight magazine, it's to be devoured here before we leave.  Wonderful expression Nate.

Once again I like this!


 ~*~ Hell is not a place of fire and a devil with a tail and horns. But a place of torment because the light of God is gone. To escape this, accept the blood of Jesus Christ! ~*~

Nathan,
I love the title to this poem.
As far as the content, it is the Bible, the true inspiration of poetry, for the truth is spoken in beauteous words, the most splendid words ever spoken.
