A poem


by royowen

Is there a line 'tween age and youth,
how much is pride, what cost is truth?
I hungered once to bathe in fame,
but I could never play that game.

The fear of failure haunts my days,
and yet inside my passion plays.
Success though measured by the soul,
I favour goodness, that's my goal.

If I am kind to man or beast,
because with Christ I'll one day feast.
Though I prefer to place God first,
my faith will satisfy my thirst.

I once heard someone shout, "reach out"
"Be humble, boy, lest pride you spout"
But I believe that God is good,
don't let fate's gloom become your hood.

Though God can cover, justify,
I'll be His shadow, faith apply.
When Christ was hung upon a cross,
be likewise cowled, for gain is loss.

I hungered once to bathe in fame,
but I could never play that game.

Ephesians 4:22-24
To put off)your old self, which belongs to your former manner of life and is corrupt through deceitful desires, and)to be renewed in the spirit of your minds, and to put on the new self, created after the likeness of God in true righteousness and holiness. ESV
