Michael--An Acrostic poem

Updated on March 28, 2012

Faith


I seen this type of poetry on a hub and it was suggested I try it.



M I C H A E L



My lord will always be there for me


In my heart he will always be


Closely believe his faith, where there is no wrong


He walks me through the darkness, where I once ran


All my faith is in his hands, where I belong


Eternity is mine, for that is his plan


Love him, you will always be strong

      cleaner3,

      Nice work. I want to agree with Katrine's comment: "So whenever anyone says your name, just remember this poem and smile :-)"

      Also, whenever you are feeling down or 'sad' in spirit, speak your name and yes; remember your poem.

      Blessings!

      Hi Cleaner. I never have hard feelings about things said about me. I will tend to stick up for others though, evev though it sometimes isn't my place to do so, that's just me. Also, I never hold grudges, that's one of those things that is a waste of time and energy, and these days I conserve as much energy as possible. And I don't like to lose a friend, especially over something silly. Greg

      ok max, you asked for it.

      Max how i wished to see you

      your beauty would come shining through

      and I know it would be true

      I would never leave

      and cause you to be blue.

      take some of that,

      my sweet flower,

      my tender chicken nugget

      my crunchy bag of potato chips.

      I am just getting started.

      What type of bird do i see

      this funny little bird

      in front of me

      it's called a max

      no it isn't true

      it white and grey and kind of blue

      Is it a bird or a plane

      it has a beak

      but not a mane

      so it's not a tiger

      or a duck what the hell is it

      what the f...

      it;s got me scared

      it's got me shook

      it's funny and small

      just take a look

      maybe i'll just take it home

      and keep it for my very own.

      Love ya,

      Michael

      how do I love thee, let me count the ways

      on a sandwich with mayonaise

      with a pickle and some chips

      wash you down over my lips

      one more bite is all i need

      just a few more words

      you'll be on your knee's

      askin me to please

      stop before my poetry

      makes your head pop.

      if you send me a picture

      it will get better,

      not a card or a letter

      So my tender chicken nugget, have you had enough?

      what kind of bird is that? , if I may ask.

      max oh max, where did you go

      all night long, i missed you so

      please don't never do it again

      leave me alone with my sin's

      there I was scared and blue

      with out my little max

      to write poetry to.

    • BeyondMax profile image

      BeyondMax 4 years ago from Sydney, Australia

      Awe, Michael, I'm so sorry to leave you in such a despair! You are a genius, now I have to re-print my poem =)

      ps - yesterday I was at work and sometimes I have to shut down computer quickly, up and leave due to commitments, no time to think =) I live in Aus, so that would also make a whooping time difference with the US, like around 10 hours++ depending on the state you are in, so when you have day we have night and vice versa =) After I came home I was swept by haboob of things that had to be done and no play, which is boo by definition but you know how it is - once you are on the roll in the hubs, it is impossible to leave and goodbye real life. Had to cut myself short =)))

    • cleaner3 profile image

      cleaner3 4 years ago from Pueblo, Colorado

      the hubs they are addicting

      yes this is so true

      when you have someone lovely

      to write poetry to

      what kind of bird is that on your profile pic?

      this I need to know

      please don't leave me

      please don't go

      not until i find

      are you married ?

      I have to to know

    • BeyondMax profile image

      BeyondMax 4 years ago from Sydney, Australia

      LOL my poem becomes longer and longer =) The bird on the picture is a laughing kookaburra, they are very noisy and loud, their "laugh" resembles hysterical laugh of a real human, very annoying, especially if you have a family of them chatting in the early hours pre-dawn in front of your window, they are quite large, similar to medium cat in size, but kinda cute. LOL as to other your question - I am a fickle creature, a universal remote that can tune to anything and anyone, really. =) So it is a tough job to keep me in one place =) We, artists, are the free flying breed, aren't we? =)

      fickle yes, as you can tell ,I am but a humble poet. but i am very curious so i must ask you how old are you you don't have to answer if i am getting to personal, let me know.

      Hi Michael =) I use this picture because it's cute and daring, sort of resembles my twisting-turning nature. =) Oh yes, I like your quick poetry and I appreciate it a lot. It's not like it is everyday that somebody writes you something, especially in rhymes =) I find rhyming itself as a fine art, not easy by any means, I see it as a miracle of it's own and it certainly mesmerizes me to the core. I am working right now on my next hub project that will include some of my abstract art works and it takes some time to put two different things together - satiric poetry and abstract pictures, though I find it rewarding and captivating. As for the age question... LOL well, I'm old enough to do everything legal and young enough to still enjoy it =)

      if you need a smile

      let me know

      an extra mile

      you know I

      will go
