Faith will carry you through
God Bless Luke


I am but a simple poet
My heart beating for mankind.
I write of life as I know it
Hoping answers you will find.

I am driven to write in verse
Life’s secrets I have learned
From birth to final hearse
Many praises I have earned.

Awards are not for me
Nor gold or money do I seek
Words of wisdom I write for thee
Here’s my life, take a peek.

Poems about friends I have known
My family and our love
Through life my spirits grown
My belief in a God up above.

Please read with open heart
All the struggles I have known
Many loved ones did depart
Day by day my spirits grown.

Please feel my strength called faith
You have to seek to find your own
But I believe as the Lord sayeth
And care not what others condone.

By Luke

Amen! I look for the signs everyday and I have been blessed with ability, however slight, to see some things before they come. Of course it's always a series that I have to put together like a puzzle but the ultimate ending is how amazing God's message is and if you look closely, pay attention, you will find your signs. They are every where, not the media however. I liked this simple write from the soul, heart and your essence shines throughout. loved it.
