    This poem was inspired by a true testimony.


    Love Conquers Hatred

    Mad Dog was his nickname.
    At age seven his life of crime began.
    A man full of hate he became.
    An angry man--a savage natured man.

    Mad Dog joined a biker gang--was an outlaw.
    Anger and hatred led to lives terminated.
    Into prostitution he led women and them he oversaw.
    Numerous crimes he did commit--was violent and bigoted.

    Mad Dog--surly and arrogant was his demeanor.
    Was feared and mean spirited.
    Suddenly, his career ended as an evildoer.
    To prison he was transported--defeated.

    Mad Dog one day in prison to his astonishment--
    The Biblical truth about the gift of Salvation was communicated.
    He learned God loves him to his amazement.
    To God he prayed and his sins he repented.

    Tears running down his face--
    Jesus Christ he accepted as Lord and Savior.
    He received Salvation by God’s grace.
    The Kingdom of God--He was now an inhabiter.

    Miraculously by the Holy Spirit--he was born again.
    His countenance changed--love and compassion he did proclaim.
    Thanking and praising God--a new life he did begin.
    A new lovable person he became.

    From prison he received early release.
    Bear--lovable as a teddy bear--is his new nickname.
    Bear is now radiating God’s love and inner peace.
    God’s gift Salvation and eternal life he proclaims.

    Inspired maybe that is the right word for why I wrote this.

    Ramie's day

    Conceived in covenant.
    Formed by mighty hands in the darkness.
    A hope for a life
    of giggles and smiles, of laughter and joy, story telling,
    and wonder.
    What joy and wonder as she arrives
    Little hands and feet, a smile so sweet.
    With pain and sorrow
    a troubled heart,
    a year, a week, a day or two.
    Now she is on streets of gold.
    In the nail pierced hands.
    No pain or sorrow can touch her now.
    She waits with him
    for others coming.
    A hope for a life
    of giggles and smiles, of laughter and joy, story telling,
    and wonder.
