A Big Hairy Deal

hairy Day

My world started out all right

Till I was aroused by pleasures

I believed my strength was tough

But easily gave in at a whim

I didn’t measure up at all

To my potentials and fizzled

Let down my very best friend

Pride slithered down the sewer

Guess that’s where it belonged

Always prided myself as good

Compared with others I did shine

Till real life choices knocked me down

Hammered in the awful bad fixes

“Everybody does it so no hairy deal”

Well it was and is a big deal to me

Though I’ve skewered self many times

That’s the whole crux of this poem

One can slip out of that sewer hole

Wipe up and put on new clothes

Clean under those finger nails too

Comb the hair and affix that smile

Let it beam out from your heart

You know you are better now

Learned how to swat those flies

Peskies trying to get under your skin

You know how to block their end zones

And can shine your sun every day

Into your new life, you’re born again

You met the Man and He sure can

Make you new and vibrant too

Chucked those sins into the farthest sea

They are no more and you are free

To be loved and loving others too

Chin up, eyes ahead, rest my friend

In the love and peace of Jesus Christ

The Son of God, the Son of Man

Learn of Him and open your heart

He’s waiting for your sincere request

Embrace His love and forgiveness

Heaven is yours for evermore

  1. isn’t this the truth! Excellent insights !

  2. Well said. The “sewer” certainly provokes the imagination and describes it well. (on another tack – my comments to your posts are bouncing back for my own approval. Must be a glitch in the system. So let me try again… this is about the photos…”Thanks, Jeanne. I took only four of those on my site and added a few more today. Am pleased I found the current theme – it’s a great way to showcase photos of Mwinilunga.”) Have a blessed day.
