Never Back down

A Poem By Damaris Ann // 5/4/2015

Be brave and strong,
Have courage, walk tall.
Never give up and never back down;
Always remember the cross and the crown.
There is such a great love,
It's your gift from above.
Always share it,
Make others aware of it,
Show it, shine it, live it, find it,
Know it, define it, understand it.
Your rank is not in who you are,
But what He made you by far:
Be that, show that, and see
That He is greater than you will ever be.
Be a great man and strong.
Show Him in your work, play, and song,
That you are His handiwork
Not made to throw away;
But to be put up on display.

Beautiful Damari! It is very sweet to write something so encouraging and beautiful for your brother :) My favorite line was "Show it, shine it, live it, find it,". The rhythm is lovely :) The only correction I would suggest would be in the line "Have courage walk tall". I would suggest either a period in between "courage" and "walk" or a comma. That line naturally is read with a pause, so some form of punctuation is probably needed :)

Also, I will get to editing the rest of your story as soon as I can :) I've had some stuff come up, so I've been a bit busier than usual. Rest assured, I will get to it as soon as I find the time :)

Keep writing and blessings to you!

Thank you so much! Yes, a

Thank you so much! Yes, a comma should be there. When I write poetry I don't use any punctuation until I finish the poem, then I go back and add it in. So I must have missed it. :)

Don't worry about time! It's so sweet of you to be willing to do that for me! Don't worry about the time. :) I'm plenty busy myself.
God bless you!
In Christ,

"The lines and verses are only the outward garments of the poem and are no more really it than your ruffles and flounces are YOU. The real poem is the soul within them . . . and that beautiful bit is the soul of an unwritten poem. It is not every day one
