Metamorphosis

A caterpillar only cares about what it desires
Its lust and its passions fuel its soulโ€™s fires.

But this one was shown a new way to live
Not for itself but to pour out and give –

Because of what was graciously given to it
Loving arms saved it from the bottomless pit.

It built a coffin and got inside, and then
It emerged as a new creature and could abide in Him

By putting off the old man and putting on the new
Sins were left behind and life was renewed!


This was written for the Weekend Writing Prompt Anthology week 52 – Emergence. If you’d like to participate, the submission guidelines are here. (The deadline is August 10th!) Special thanks to Olivia for helping me write this one!ย ๐Ÿ˜ธ

To Lose Is To Gain – WWP Week #1

One day I went from well-liked to outcast
Utterly disregarded and ignored
The only friend I have is loneliness and Jesus.
Cut off from the in-crowd
Alone – will no one wants to be my friend now
Still standing tall, throughout, because
To lose all that I have is to gain all that He is.


This was in response to the Weekend Writing Prompt #1, Outcast. The poetry challenge was to do an acrostic of outcast, so here it is. If you would like to join in the fun, here is a link to the submission guidelines for the anthology. The deadline is August 10th. ๐Ÿ™‚
