For the past several weeks I have been working with a group of young ladies that are contestants in the 2011 North Carolina Talented Teens Competition. My role has been that of Speech Coordinator/Program Designer and Contributing Poet. It is the day of the show and I am not feeling well at all….well as they say in show business….
“The Show Must Go On!”
Here is my original poem..written for the girls…inspired by Genesis 29:17 “Leah had weak eyes, but Rachel had a lovely figure and was beautiful.”
This poem is written for Leah and is entitled Recognize…enjoy your weekend!
you not know? Have you not heard?
is the final word.
lasting decree spoken over me
young woman of radiance, love and beauty
by the power released from His right hand
potential to achieve more than most can
my reach is far greater than any have seen
in myself with high self-esteem
worth holds more value than rubies or gems
and confident, liberated from within
is important, I encourage those in need
live a better life and my advice I pray they heed
up to your potential and never settle for less than best
up for every challenge and deliver nothing less
all you have to give and your dreams will be fulfilled
your life on God’s foundation and your future will be sealed
Accept the blessing of His promise and make an oath to live His way
the beauty in each moment and always seize the day!
