Rest

A Poem By Emilee // 8/4/2012

As always, I would really appreciate any comments and advice! Hope you enjoy it!

Rest

There is a rest stop
Just ten miles away

Beside a river
With trees that sway

The road’s been long
You’ve gotten confused

You tripped awhile back
You’ve felt so used

You’ve made friends
Some you’ve burned

Some have stopped
Your distance was earned

You were fooled by some
They seemed like you

They made you stall
You can only trust a few

But a rest is coming
Just ten miles away

It is not the end
But rest for a day

You can’t keep going
You’ll stop too soon

Speed is not important
Just rest an afternoon

There is no set end
The key’s to help the lost

To lead others forward
To show others the cost

The cost of their sin
The life of our Lord

Tell them the news
How to be restored

So rest a little bit
You must delay

But keep moving
To the Son ablaze

Comments

Oh wow.

This was really great from my perspective, just because I guess I can relate to it. My favourite rhyming bit was:

There is a rest stop
Just ten miles away

Beside a river
With trees that sway

The rest is all great too. good job!
