The Lost Were Found

A Poem By Damaris Ann // 7/22/2015

When tears I cry I cry for me,
In selfish pride my tears flow.
I know this doesn't have to be;
It doesn't and this I know.

But when He cried His bitter tears
He wept with grief, not shame.
He payed for sins of all the years,
And still we mocked His name.

Our Lord and Savior took the blow,
He sacrificed His life, in love.
We murmur as we reap and sow,
While He looks pitying from above.

So patient with our wayward paths
He stretches forth His kindly hand
While reaching up we touch at last
The beauty of His holy land.

In glorification we look around
And wonder at our senseless minds,
In wandering the lost were found,
And sight was given to the blind.

Casting golden crowns at His feet
We thank Him for His narrow track,
And for His mercy ever meet,
We say with content "no turning back."

Beautiful Damari :)

This is so beautiful! I absolutely love some of the imagery and the allusion to the journey. I just finished reading Pilgrim's Progress by John Bunyan the other day and this poem really reminded me of it. The imagery "Casting golden crowns at His feet" and the journey-walk you show in:

"So patient with our wayward paths
He stretches forth His kindly hand
While reaching up we touch at last
The beauty of His holy land."

I really enjoyed this! Keep it up girl!

P.S. I did finally have my surgery two weeks ago. I am doing better now, but still a little tender. I keep having to tell myself that I can't do all of my usual routine yet and that's ok haha!

Yes, this is my personal favorite of your poetry as well! Keep up the great writing! Thanks for the prayers as well! I won't go into full detail, but I believe I received a supernatural healing! If that turns out to be the case, then I will definitely be writing about it!
Blessings to you! You're sister in Christ,
