The Altar Call

By Christy Miller / 3 weeks ago

THE ALTAR CALL The week was so long, The battles were rough. I needed my God, His spirit to lift me up. The preacher was done, It was time to pray. It felt so right, To be at the altar that day To reach out to see, If my hand could touch His. To believe […]

The Fearful Tree

By Danny Naglowsky / a few months ago

The Fearful Tree By, Daniel Naglowsky, Jr. As his life begins, the tree is just a seed Petite and desolate, he will soon be like a weed An unfavorable feeling is his only emotion At the sight of his minuscule reflection And of his inability and lack of locomotion He has become a part of […]

I Refuse To Give Up

By Virginia Fields / a few months ago

I Refuse. I refuse to give up. I refuse to let the devil win. I refuse to give up the ground I’ve worked so hard to gain. I refuse to let myself be weakened and prone to attack and failure. I refuse to believe Satan’s lies that I’m not good enough or spiritual enough. I […]

I miss my time with you…

By Tracy Gimpel / a few months ago

By Monique Bryant / a few months ago

Accidentally Changed

By Shayna Buchan / 7 months ago

Accidental Change My head was jolted up and down, I awakened from my slumber. My heart was beating wildly, I screamed and then went under. My eyes quickly fluttered open, Watching the snow fall to the ground. In a mass of twisted metal, The smell of death lingered around. It wasn’t real I would not believe, […]

The Creature

By Nathaniel Richards / 7 months ago

The Creature:   The pillars of life Crumble Before mine eyes. They dissolved Into a cloud Of opaque dust.   All I have saved for Is gone from me It had been rudely snatched From my grasp, It has been and will remain Stolen.   The dust which was My life, Engulfs me: Its appetite […]
