Shed your clothes of filth,Burn the evil away,For Jesus needs youTo reach the lost today.Allow God to cleanse you,Refine you in His firesTo streamline your very soul,To excavate your heinous desires.Born again in Spirit—Made new in the image of ChristA suit of armor for you to wear,To stop Satan’s epidemic heist.First, the sturdy belt of Truth,Then, body armor of RighteousnessWith waterproof boots of PeaceAnd shield of Faithfulness.Grab your helmet of Salvation,Unsheathe your sword—Sword of the Spirit,God’s Divine Word.Go forth Warrior of God!SHOUT out for the One,Fly down to the slopes of deathFor His battles need to be won.~By: A.J.

Circular TracksPrints in the sandAll out sprintsTo find an answer~Who am I?Randomness not okayMust nail down a targetAnd pursue headlongInto the unknown,A Roundabout DreamFrom one location to another,From one scenario to twoSome say helter-skelterPursuit gets us no-where,Yet change rears backAnd we must tangle alongLest we die along the way,Lost to ourselvesAnd the dreams once held.Let loose! Let go! Move!Make adjustmentsTo come upon everyRoundabout Dream.Infinite DomainOn and on and on and onRegardless the start,We sometimes take breathsTo catch ourselvesUpon the clouds~Dragons and unicorns,Knights and all Hero storiesFor all our Roundabout Dreams~~By: A.J.
