Joyfully At Home

A Poem By Damaris Ann // 2/21/2016

Joyfully at home I shall wait,
Never sigh in my single state.
Indeed, better Hands hold my fate;
Joyfully at home.

Life at home is not always "fun",
But brings more joy in the long-run.
Contented to serve a good Son;
Joyfully at Home.

More hands to do the needed work,
Less for mother who does not shirk,
Time learning patience is a perk;
Joyfully at home.

Someday I may have my own place:
A diff'rent man will set the pace.
With my fam'ly running life's race;
Joyfully at home.

Great job!

This is a really good piece! I had the pleasure of knowing Jasmine and her family personally many years ago, when her father was just starting his ministry. He was a pastor at my church here in Houston. Really sweet family. Though I am not currently a stay-at-home daughter, I definitely respect those girls who are "joyfully at home". Great work here! :)

Thank you dear!
I have visited the Housten church where Mr. Bauchum was speaking but was not able to meet any of the family. But I respect them very much. :)

I am an overcomer through Christ alone, for the glory of God alone.

Your rhythm and lineation

Your rhythm and lineation were quite nice. Thank you for that! Also, Sarah Liz, it's nice to see another Houstonian on AP. :)

Thank you, Erin!
There's just one line that I trip over. It's the one that says "But brings more joy in the long-run." I'm trying to think of a way to reword it to where I won't trip over it... Not yet sure what I'll do about it.
