A Christian Poem (A Christian’s Poem)

February 10, 2011

As a warning, the ending of this poem is meant to say that I do not believe that art has to be secular or blasphemous to be creative and thought provoking.  I did not choose the title of the link at the bottom but wanted you to know where I came up with the last line.

It’s a hurt

Deeply felt

Deeply longed

For words to express

Without expressly

Alienating and departing

From an interesting

Phrasing

Used in a poem?

Is this a poem

Like a sonnet

Or limerick

Or something good?

Doesn’t have to be sold

In a Christian bookstore

Or have an eagle on it

Riding a horse through

A bubbling brook

With Jesus in the clouds

Does it?

Need a scripture

Attached to the signature

Or overtly

Overt

Is not covert

Is not denial is

Refuting

The belief that art is urine and the cross
