My Heart

Poem By James Royster

Empty, lonely, cold, and dark,
This is what it's like on the inside of my heart.

There have been times when a light once shone,
but that was the past, now the light is gone

I long to feel the warmth one more time.
I wish to find someone who will once again
make my heart shine.

Now I choose to give my heart to you.
Take away this darkness, do what you must do

When I cried it was you who wiped away my tears.
When I was afraid you abolished all my fears

When I was worried you told me it was ok.
When I went to sleep you let me see another day.

Some ask me am I in love?
I tell them yes. I love my King, my Lord
my Savior above.

A Different Perspective

I see intelligence, knowledge and wisdom beyond his age.
Society sees anger, hatred, and eyes filled with rage.

I see someone who is full of success.

God's Masterpiece

I tried to write about you, but the words
weren't special enough.

I tried to sing about you, but the notes


I have fought my battles and overcame them all,
But the current task is not something small.

It encompasses all of me.


How can I smile when 2/3 of me have been
oppressed? Yet I am told to just hold my head
up and do my best.


I have no reason to smile, no reason to cry.
No reason to live, no reason to die.

I have no reason to laugh, no reason to pout

The Most Beautiful Thing

I've seen a flower whose petals refuse to fall.
I've seen a woman who looks like a beautiful queen doll.

I've seen the majestic eagle soar across the sky.
