Poet, don't keep silent.

Poet, don't keep silent
You've a message to convey
Words of life that must be spoken
Words your God wants you to say

It's a gift that you've been given
Now you'll never be the same
Seek the Spirit's great anointing
You've a gift, now fan the flame

Poet, don't keep silent
You must let your voice be heard
Let it all be for His glory
Every line and every word

There are those who live in sorrow
Condemnation and in strife
Poet, don't keep silent
Let your words be words of life

Let them echo every promise
Every truth found in His Word
Let the seeds of life be planted
Where your rhyming lines are heard

Don't seek fame and don't seek glory
Seek to magnify your Lord
For indeed He's coming quickly
Poet that is your reward.

This may not the best....Maybe.

    Wow, this poem is wonderful. You have something about you that just gives this piece energy and life, without over doing it. I like how there's style, flow, rhythm, and rhyme, but none of it overpowers other bits. You have perfectly balanced a fantastic piece and it just fits together so wonderfully. Your voice is clear, yet stays hidden too in a way. All in all, this piece is magnificent and definitely worthy of a 5/5 and I hope to go and read more of your works soon.
