New Poem "Loss of Them"

 





Loss of Them

Loss of a friend I'd pray Lord save me from
As the pain was hard in life to deal
Now I pray more for the loss of them

As I wonder to what their life will become
I know to my loss the Lord will heal
But a lost friend I pray Lord save them from

I know it's not up to me the outcome
Thou, deep inside for their soul I appeal
Now I pray more for the loss of them

To now the pain in loss reflects in care
Although I know the friendship is gone
My soul beckons a loss in despair

For so close was God's love to rely on
To this was forsaken and friendship loss
As in our differences to this withdrawn

Thou, hard when friendship to this world toss
Loss of a friend I'd pray Lord save me from
But now to the pain I go to the cross
As now I pray more for the loss of them

Thoughts: Haven't wrote my thoughts of one of my poems in a while, but this one I feel needs my thoughts so as not to be misunderstood, nor misinterpreted. Losing a friend, even if only a slight connection, can be painful for some; especially those who have any kind of soul filled heart. Or for those that have very little experience in this area of life; not to mention those having a combination of both. I tend to border the combination of both. Having recently lost a potential friend, the pain I was feeling at first was to myself. Feelings of what did I do wrong, where did I go wrong, what did I misunderstand about the potential relationship, what can I do to correct it, and so on and on...self. Then I started reflecting on what I believe to be our differences and realized maybe it just wasn't meant to be. That's when my pity party to myself started reflecting outwardly in concern for the other person's well-being. Please don't take me wrong. I in no way assume I'm better than anyone. Quite the opposite. But, as a Christian who fully believes in the power of healing from the Lord, I know I will be okay. That He will heal my brokeness from this. My heart felt concern then became that of the other person. I can only assume it was our differences that led to our friendship loss. And that's it, assume because we really didn't get to know each other that well. I know I seen where this person announced not being religious and that is all I have to go on. Only the Lord really knows for sure. And, I don't claim to be holier than thou, that's not me. I just know where I stand. I know I talk a great deal about the Lord and Christianity, maybe a bit too much for some. This, I can't help as I grow deeper in the relationship with our Lord. But, I guessing for some, it's a bit much to take in or even to deal with. And, again, I assuming. I really don't know what caused the friendship to die. All I do know at this point is that I hope we will see each other in heaven, if not again here on earth. Friends come and go. I don't believe we meet people by mistake, that every encounter is for a purposeful reason. I also, know it is not for my purpose alone that connections are made as I have no power in determining the outcome. That only the Lord Himself has the power to save someone from themself. I don't pray in pity for myself any longer, but in the hope that the other person of this failed friendship doesn't let this world consume them in losing out on the greatest gift to humanity; eternal life. And that's what this poem is all about.

Godly Woman by Andile Andy (Really like this Poem)

Godly Women by Andile Andy A woman who walks in God's love. Reflecting the beauty of the father above. Who is not defeated by things most men find tough. A woman whose not just a pretty face But a woman of God's grace Beholding God's face A woman who lives knowing she's headed heaven in God's place. A woman of good character, not better competence. A woman who symbolizes the goodness of God by her excellence. A woman who pray for her house, and other residence. She walks with the Lord shouting, pleading's how me the way oh God'. I'm talking abhor a woman whose 'BAD'. Baptized and delivered. I'm talking about a woman whose 'MAD' Magnificent and devoted. I'm talking about the forever loved lovable leading ladies. Who help us see the best in our daddies. A woman whose blessed. And knows that can never be reversed. A woman who does not Drink, But raises the bar. A woman who prays to properly Think, before making decisions that will p

Sadly Informing

 Hi guys, I’m will be making many decision over the course of the next several months. Sadly I’ve made one decision that was a really hard decision for me to make. I’m letting my longtime  “rhymes” name to my blog go. I’ve used that name in one way or another now for several years. I have also used the “redemptive” name in different ways for a few years now. I’m letting both names go. You see, I’ve come to a place where I’m not writing much poetry. I’ve written close to 800 poem-including those unpublished and or tossed-over the course of the last six years; most of which was out of the need to express myself in poetry as that being the only way I could at the time. However, now my expressionable needs have changed. I will be focusing more on writing post, articles, novellas and or novels (maybe), and just plain promoting rhyming poetry on occasion; after all I still prefer rhyming poetry and did creat my own rhyming form. It wouldn’t make since for me to pull away from poetry altogeth
