Faith is a gift from God March 29, 2010

Filed under: poetry — laurenmichelleotheim @ 2:48 pm

What does faith give to the

One Republic for which I

Stand above it all waiting

For the world to change

As I catch a falling star and

Put it in saving in case of

Natural disasters affect

Thousands of children are

Dying of Aids so we wear

Pink and jog laps around

You so don’t think you

Can do it America wants only

You can prevent forest

Fired for sleeping with a

Woman’s choice bill chosen

You Pikachu with my poké-

Ball rolling down hill at

Age fifty the story of my

Life is a gift from God so

Don’t screw it up.

    VERY nice! Reminds me somewhat of ee cummings “next of course to god america i” Your use of the rushed phrase is spot on.

      Thank you so much! I had actually just read that very poem and wanted to play around with the idea of it. I thought it would be interesting to write a poem of that style for today’s generation and see what came out. 😀
