A New Day...
I thought I'd try putting some of my poems here so that others had access to them. Forgive their imperfections, their creator is only human. I hope that you might find some small use for these poems, simple though they are.
If you like a poem or choose to use one for anything - please leave a comment - I'd like to hear from you.
(If I have modified a poem to better suit a person or situation, I will try to upload both the original and modified versions.)
(As I get time I'll try to add more - don't expect all of them at once...)

Warrior of Truth
(based on D&C 27)
Serving the Lord is a noble call
A warrior of Truth standing so tall
Having your “loins girt about with truth”
And a “breastplate of righteousness” formed in your youth
Your feet you have “shod with the gospel of peace”
You’ve a “shield of faith” you must never release
Along with a “helmet of salvation”, you raise
The “sword of my Spirit” to conquer each day
The Comforter’s presence will always be near
Even in times of trial, heartache, or fear
As you earnestly teach, taking a stand
You’ll seek out His children upon this new land
Your “armor” is whole and tempered by Love
As you faithfully serve your Father, above
You know the Truth, you’ve heard the Lord’s call
Go, serve him with Honor, and give Him your all
