A Christian Battle

by Alan Bedworth

I write poetry about Christianity and God.
My spirits lift  whenever I write.
Yet within myself I’m fighting a battle,
am I an hypocrite, 
for not visiting the House of God.

Other Christian poets I read,
give a feeling of love through
the words that they write.
I’m struggling to believe
that my words have that feel.

Yet when my fingers touch the keyboard,
I get the feeling I’m being led
in my choice of words,
and the subjects I choose.
Perhaps I’m being too hard on myself.

And God is showing me the
way to be a good Christian.
By using words to aid those in despair.
Long may it continue
and praise to the Lord.
