This is a very meaningful entry in the My Faith poetry contest. It is a wonderful comfort knowing the Lord is faithful and will not leave His children. In difficult times, it is both soothing and supportive knowing that we are not going through the tough times alone--and that one day we will not be living in a world where there are daily struggles and upsets. Best wishes, Ralf!

Nothing there is that special someone, somewhere watching over us at all times makes our burdens easier to bare. Bear? Who said bear, run and hope there is someone slower behind you. LOL. Yes, I'm silly. I tend to lean toward laughter when things get too serious for me. It's a defense mechanism the good Lord gave me. Thanks for sharing.

This is a very good poem about your faith. When one leads a holistically balanced life, always keeping to the straight path, then there is no risk of collecting wrath.An I liked very much the fact that God is your friend .I too often feels this way

The brilliantly clever closing couplet -- never take the bend ... it would offend my friend (bonus rhyme!) earns your stars in itself. A fine entry--good luck. Cheers. LIZ

Very beautiful piece, and like you I think friends are so important. when choosing friends it is good to look for qualities that compliment each other. Just one little critique on line #8 "Today and from the start" keep the cadence the same.

    Thank you for your review. Do you recognize that the Friend I speak of is God?
    And yes, I'll edit. Thanks for the tip.

    Raif, duh no I did not get the God answer. Must have been in la la land. But it is still beautiful.

Ralf, I love your lovely poem. The rhyming is perfect and the message is clear. 'God will never deceive,' is a very reassuring thought. I like the last two thoughts: 'I never take the bend' and how you portray Jesus as your (F)riend.
Good luck in this contest and in all you're writing.
Best wishes, Cindy

This starts with a little explanatory stanza that uses iambic tetrameter with a trochaic substitution in the second line. In subsequent stanzas the metre drops a foot as iambic hexameters are employed to drum home the examples. An interesting construction.
