My pen flows to beat of a
different drum
so I dare not change tom-tom's now
for the word tunes that's given-
are not my own
therefore I cannot lay it down
Thought there be, a many of feathers
each having it's own flight
but I must remain true -
in what I must inscribe
for in my heart I know it's right
My chief is watching my every stroke
He is taking in, my every move
and I must obey, seek nothing new in knowing all my works, he will prove
My pen must be, filled with love
it must write with truth devine
also to leave room for improvement relying on God's thoughts and not mine
I write about love in different forms about solutions to ease hurts and pains
I write about children out of concern
for I had my share of many torrid rains
now at times my pen writes humor
for even my God knows how to smile
so when it's done to bring some cheer
He allows that part of me to be a child
It's funny how things will awake you
so to be conscious in every way- and
I thank God above for letting me know
every feather pen has it's own day
I make no boast in being perfect, but
allow my pen to bring comfort and relief
so though my pen beats
with a different tune
the one who's holding it is Jesus
Thee Chief
