You Can Run

A Poem By Damaris Ann // 6/7/2015

Run, yeah run, just as fast as you can,
God will still catch you if it's in His plan.
You can run for a long time or you can sit still;
But you can't hide from God, or from His will.
You can run like a coward or you can stand bold
But God in His might will have His story told.
So stand up tall and always be brave:
Never forget how He conquered the grave.
Spread the gospel far and wide: in every land
'Till His children all rest at His holy right hand.

I feel like that line needs another syllable to even it out. Otherwise, this is perfect! Great job! :)

Thank you Homey!
Yes that line tripped me up a bit, I'll see if I can change it a bit to fix the rhythm. I just realized that I never answered your comment on my Confidence post; so sorry! I found it really sweet and encouraging. I was just reading over a bunch of my old posts and all of your comments are so helpful and sweet. :) Thank you for taking time to encourage me on all of those posts!
