Robin's Psalm

This one is dated 11-7-98.

It's not bad for a novice.

Robin's Psalm
by: R.A. Slater

Though the pillars of heaven and earth shake
The gates of hell fly open and the forces of evil assault me
I will not be afraid and I will not be shaken
No, I will remain standing and I will stand boldly and bravely
Because the foundation upon which I stand is that Rock that can't be moved
Christ is that Rock
He is my salvation, my fortress, and my refuge
In Him I will stand and not be dismayed
I will weather all storms and not be moved.

Are poems allowed to have 'sequels'? Because as I was typing this up, trying really hard not to "polish" it up, I felt a part two begin to brew. I'm gonna go work on that now, I'll post it later. :)

I'm sure many poems have sequels; they just develop from when they are closed.

Lovely poem, Ciera.

There's a sequel in all poems, Ciera.
