Intro Version One (A Poem)

Intro Version One

 

Permit me

To introduce my self:

I Am

Introverted

I simply cannot be

Converted.

You’ll have to look deep inside

To where the real me resides.

 

My outward form

Is not the norm;

I adapt and change,

A Chameleon

To survive in your world

Or just to cope and “get on”.

 

Your outside noise

And stimuli

Are simply overwhelming

For me.

I must preserve

Some inner space

Where I can recharge,

Think at my own pace.

 

Those I trust

I allow within

The walls I’ve build

To keep me sane.

You may visit,

Pause

And understanding

Me,

Chat for a while,

Perhaps “stay for tea”.

Then

Kindly, please leave again.

But I will stay

I will remain…

…an Introvert.

For that’s my name.

 

 

 

 

I Am A Christian/Am I A Christian?

I Am a Christian

But many of my most heart-felt prayers

Go unanswered…

I Am in a relationship with God

But I do not hear

God’s Voice…

Since God is not dumb

I must be deaf

To such sounds,

To such wonders…

I do not see

God…

I Am a Christian

But my shadow

Brings no healing;

There is no tongue of fire

Upon my head;

My touch brings forth

No miracles;

On my lips

No prophecy;

My words command

No deliverance,

No storms to still

If I Am

The deaf, dumb, blind

Impotent follower of Christ today

Why should you listen to my message?

An answer:

I believe Jesus is

Who He says He is

Perhaps then

I Am not

Who I think

I Am.

Perhaps

I must be Born Again,

Again…

Until

I Am

(Again)

A Christian.
