Today, in our last class for "The Christian and the Arts," Mr. Whigham asked us to write a poem from the perspective of God, viewing us. The following is the poem I wrote. I don't usually write poems, but I'm glad I did it. I know it doesn't rhyme all the way through, I was trying to go for more of a "free-verse" kind of poem. I'd like feedback from friends on it! Be honest please!
O sinful child of mine why do you stray so far?
I have died for you, and yet you look away.
I love you, and yet you turn aside.
O sinful child of mine why do you forget my works?
I have made you, and I have formed you.
I have sought you, and I have known you.
O sinful child of mine why do you doubt me?
I have always loved my people, and I will always love them still.
I have ever been so faithful and I always ever will be.
O sinful child of mine, do you know that I see you?
I see your trials, and I see your pain.
I know your fears, and I know your shame.
O sinful child of mine, do you know my provision?
I have prepared a place for you, a place of rest.
I am waiting with open arms to hold you to my breast.
