An Open Door by Holly McKim

 

An Open door (Chink in the armor)

Opening the door, of my steel enclosure,

Shielding my eyes from the light in fear of overexposure.

Standing in the shadows, daring to dream.

Oh my heart take courage, to jump into the stream.

Kneeling on the familiar cold firm floor,

hesitant to step out- to dare for a piece of abundantly more.

Gathering the courage to fight off Satan’s lies,

to know in the choosing, that truth begets LIFE!

Distant echoes resounding from the soul,

welling up from within, calling seasons of old.

    “Choose LIFE! Choose FAITH!

    Choose to TRUST the God of Prison Break”

placing the beat of my heart on holy ground,

prostrate before the Wearer of Kingdom’s Crown.

if you recognized this as a guest piece~you are right! Reprinted with permission and written by a  very up and coming Poetess. The Talented and Lovely Miss Holly McKim 🙂

Until next time~~with heart before The Wearer of Kingdom’s Crown.  Trust The God of The Prison Break.

  2. it’s a beautiful poem but just wondering why you’re linking up with dVerse with a poem not written by yourself – think it would be cool to rather read one of yours to get to know you a bit – you know

  3. This was nice, but would have enjoyed reading a poem by you better. If shy, just link your poem – you don’t have to read it. Please come see us again at d’Verse and share one of yours – we don’t bite! 🙂

    with
    confidence
    as history

    the same
    for all folks
    who walk
    as TRUTH
    AND LIGHT..
    numbering
    in
    thou
    sands..
    maybe
    MIL
    LIONS..
    as GOD’s
    unknown
    Servants
    and Soldiers..:)
