Poetry

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 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?
