    Fights and battles, battles and fights,
    Absolute terror throughout the night.
    Watching my life, wither away,
    Breaking, piece by piece, day by day.
    From the darkness the demons come,
    Not all at once, but one by one.
    Lacking the wisdom that God supplies,
    They lure me in with all their lies.
    Just like a boxing match I fight each round,
    As the bell dings with its echoing sound.
    First comes temptation, it’s coming to deceive,
    He disguises himself, so I fail to see.
    He brings me in, with all his lies and his traps,
    And almost defeats me when something just snaps.
    The demon gets terrified as he looks up,
    And sees Jesus standing there, filling my cup.
    Temptation is defeated, and I’m free at last,
    All of a sudden, another demon is cast!
    Here comes pain, with heartaches and sorrows,
    Making me feel, there’s no tomorrow.
    My friends all leave me and say they don’t care,
    They spread rumors and pretend I’m not there.
    In my times of loneliness, God was all I had,
    So I reached out to Him, when everything was bad.
    The demon realized he'd failed once again,
    For I turned to Jesus, and not to him.
    The battle’s not over, they have one more shot,
    As one more demon comes forth with a new plot.
    One of my friends say they tried taking their life,
    Taking my happiness and giving me strife.
    Family members then pass away,
    Leaving me clueless on what to say.
    But there’s one thing I learned through all these rounds,
    That’s to turn to the One who wears the crown.
    I turn to God and I don’t sit and pout,
    And everything seems to work itself out.
    The demons are amazed at how much I’ve grown,
    And leave me alone, for as far as I know.
    I turn around and I look at the field,
    Holding nothing but my sword and shield.
    The battle was brutal, with things everywhere,
    Yet I made it through, though it was hard to bear.
    I turn to the Father in the heavens above,
    As He looks down on me with eyes full of sweet love.
    It may have been brutal, and hard to the end,
    But thanks to the battle, I found a best friend.












    Love many things, for therein lies the true strength
    and whosoever loves much performs much, and can accomplish much
    and what is done in love is done well ♥

    it's funny, I came back here to see you and found myself re-reading that, feeling like I'm in a battle of my own at the moment, a demon that haunts me relentlessly, that thing called loneliness, I fear that I'm destined to forever be alone and I come here and I realize I'm never really alone, it doesn't make up for the missing companionship, but it will help get me through the night ... I love you RK, thank you for bringing me back here! *smooches!!!* love!

    COLORS FROM THE SON

    With so many hues to choose from,
    He made colors of each race,
    There are red, and white and yellow ones
    Just look at the color of the face,

    With so many colors to choose from,
    He made the grass green and the sky blue,
    The sun is yellow too you know
    And we know green and yellow make blue too.

    The different tones He chose to use
    Were created specifically for each thing,
    The Color of the sun was chosen
    Specifically by the Almighty King.

    Brown for the ground, green for the leaves
    Black for the dark of night
    The myriad colors of the many flowers
    He knew what He was doing was right,

    Enjoy the colors that you see,
    The beautiful sunrises are so great,
    Each color He specifically chose
    The God , which He did create.

    Default My Own Poem

    squirt i am adding one of my own poems that i wrote a few ywears back...i think it fits well here

    I AM ALIVE! by Ken Courneyea

    I HAVE FELT THE FIRE OF PASSION
    I HAVE FELT THE COLD ASHES OF A LOVE GONE BAD

    I'VE FELT THE PAIN OF LOOSING A CLOSE FRIEND
    I'VE FELT THE LOSS, MADE ME SAD

    I'VE SEEN DAYS I THOUGHT I WOULD NEVER GET THROUGH
    I'VE SEEN NIGHTS THAT NEVER SEEMED TO END

    I'VE FELT THE SUN'S WARMING RAYS ON MY FACE
    I'VE FELT THE RAIN'S CHILLING EFFECT THROUGH MY SKIN

    I'VE SEEN THE NORTHERN LIGHTS DANCE ACROSS THE SKY
    I'VE SEEN SUNSETS THAT MADE ME CRY

    I'VE FELT THE AGONY OF LOOSING CONTROL OF MY LIFE
    I'VE FELT DEPRESSION I COULD CUT WITH A KNIFE

    I'VE FELT THE JOY OF LAUGHING WITH MY FRIENDS
    SURE HOPE IT NEVER ENDS

    I AM ALIVE!

    I WROTE THIS POEM ONE DAY WHILE GOING THROUGH A CHEMO TREATMENT.
    I SURE HOPE YOU ENJOY IT. IT'S FUNNY WHAT RUNS THROUGH A PERSON'S MIND WHEN LIFE MIGHT END SOONER THAN ONE EVEN THINKS

    He carved them on the tablets made of stone
    A glimpse of holiness - His measure shown
    To teach us that there isn't anyone
    Whose righteous in His sight except the Son.

    Perfection, nothing less, the Law demands
    A burden and a curse are its commands
    To keep them all but fail in only one
    You break the whole and prove yourself undone.

    He came to us a light unto the earth
    To tell us of God's love and of our worth
    His life fulfilled the Law, He broke not one
    Lamb slain for all, the curse has been undone.

    So blind, receive your sight and sing His praise
    He paid your debt, be thankful all your days
    Lift grateful voices high to heaven's throne
    The Law's now in your heart not carved in stone.












    Love many things, for therein lies the true strength
    and whosoever loves much performs much, and can accomplish much
    and what is done in love is done well ♥

    Here I stand at the foot of the cross
    and behold a tragic sight.
    I watch with horror in my heart
    as day turns into night.

    A man with nail- pierced hands and feet;
    crown of thorns upon his brow,
    His body so striped and bloody,
    what more could they do now?

    Lamb of God, Son of Man, Messiah,
    God's only Son.
    I look at all those gathered here;
    My God, what have we done?

    A sense of shame pervades my soul,
    "He's innocent! " I cry.
    What can I do to save the Lamb
    who died for such as I?

    The crowd hurls insults at the man,
    derision in their cry:
    "Son of God! King of the Jews!
    Come Down, let's see you try. "

    But Jesus, He stayed on that cross,
    Compassion in His eye;
    "Forgive them Father, for they know not! "
    was his impassioned cry.

    A righteous God; He had a plan,
    for death was the demand.
    As Satan had filled this world with sin
    and infected all of man.

    With Love, such Love, He sent His Son
    To Earth for Him to die;
    To redeem the lost, the sinful, and yes,
    to rescue you and I!

    This story has not ended yet,
    He conquered death and sin.
    And Satan, well he has no hope,
    'cause He'll fight him and He'll win!










    Love many things, for therein lies the true strength
    and whosoever loves much performs much, and can accomplish much
    and what is done in love is done well ♥
