The High King Lives

Hear the Writer Roar! Tuesday: “David”, a short poem September 10, 2013

Dear ones, it’s Tuesday and I have another poem to share. It’s based on a sad but true story. My poems are a bit melancholy but I find it helps me to write about sad times. Please don’t copy but you can share the link. God bless & remember the High King lives! ~Amber Dover

I hear your slurred speech,

I see your child-like face.

You were broken in so many ways.

She stole your soul  when she stabbed you.

But you sat there and listened to Dad preach.

You came so close but hope was just out of reach.

I pray you knew Jesus

before you met your fate,

Before they found you lying

dead in the paint.

Curse depression! Curse addiction!

You should’ve never died in shame.

May God hold you now, David.

I’ll never forget your name.

      HI Maryelizabeth! It’s great to hear from you :). Thank you for considering me to look over your work but honestly I have no experience with editing etc. I have yet to publish my own works and have had other qualified people to look over my book (those good with grammar which I am not). Though I’d love to help I doubt I would get the time. Prepping for homeschool etc barely leaves me time to write my own book. I try not to take on commitments that I most likely won’t do. I’d rather be honest with you. God bless and good to hear from you again.

      Also I’m going to take off your comment with your email just because it’s public and you might have strangers trying to email you. If you check my site my facebook link is on the right. It is a fb page for my book so I don’t put personal info like my location on it and I am not on that much. But you are welcome to add me anyways :).
