Thankful For Jesus By: Caleb Hammonds

Thankful for the sons example living the life I’m meant to live,

Thankful for the holy spirit teaching what no man has ever taught me

I love my father for breaking me, not letting pride lead me astray.

Thankful for his eye for the unseen. Keeping me focused on the real thing and not a dream.

I Won’t Complain: By Caleb Hammonds

I thought to complain about my life
I seen God while looking in the sky,
Thought to tell him he failed me
Made it unfair for me to succeed
Before I spoke
Anger swelled up in me
Am I mad at my creator?
Did I have a right to speak?

Poetry

Every Man’s Team By: Caleb Hammonds

I have a vision that gives me hope
And some acquaintances that believe.
I follow a daily schedule that attracts faith and some associates that want me to succeed.
I have a family that supplies everything I need while chasing my dream.
But most of all, im grateful for the friends that bleed when I bleed.

Poetry

The Life Obstacle By: Caleb Hammonds

When I decided to change my heart, I thought friends would greet me at the door. But no,
I realized I was trapped inside a world that was opposite, and also trapped in a body conflicting as well
Every day since, is spent fighting against myself and the world where im held.
