Hello people! What to say? I'm a Christian girl. I like to write. I write tons of poetry, some short stories, and other things.
God bless you!

You can be nostalgic for a place you've never been if you've been there in your imagination.

strokes of paint on canvas/those are my words on a page/watch as the ink blots drawn from the depths of my mind/stain papers as they grow yellow with age/wonder if they will live forever/in the imagination and thoughts of someone/for sometimes you'll find if the words are important/blotting them out is not easily done

Thank you to all who have supported me, and feedback is always welcome!
Also, if you comment on a piece of mine, I will generally respond to it at some point.

Lost Your Way

1
as i was walking down a road,
a much-populated yet ever-so-lonely
road,
i came upon a man in white
his robes were pure, his
face was kind
nail-marked scars 
had marred his hands

he stepped towards me,
and i 
stopped
thinking maybe he wanted a 
word
i believe i was correct, for
after a moment of examining me,
with a strange, sad
smile 
on his face

he said-

oh.
you've lost your way,
haven't you? 

i was quite confused, for
i was sure i had not
asked 
for directions.
granted, i did not
know
where i was going, but
that doesn't mean i'm 
lost. 

right?

you see,
he continued,
nobody ever really
finds it
unless they come to me,
of course. 

yes,
everyone is lost, he mused
everyone but
me.
and i would
show them the way-
and i have shown many of the
lost 
the way,
and now they are
found-


except that many think
i am but a figment of their
imagination. 

well, sir, 
i said
why don't they listen
when you show them the way?
after all, when one is 
lost
they often want to be
un-lost
found
set upon the straight path
once more.

ah, he said, nodding
but you see-
most people
don't know
they are lost. 
and that makes
all
the difference,
doesn't it?

it does,
i agreed.
he seemed a pleasant man,
but i felt that i really
must
go on walking soon. 

where is this way?
i asked, curious.

it is me,
he smiled.

i was taken aback

what do you mean, it is
you?

well, you see,
the path that you follow
is twisted, corrupted-

oh, yes, once it would have been
pristine and beautiful,
not a 
flaw
in sight-

but it is not so 
anymore.

when you reach the end of your
road,
you will only come upon a
burning lake 
of fire

but certainly i can turn back
then, right?
i interrupted, horrified at the
thought.

no,
he said 
firmly
once you reach the end
you will be doomed to that place

forever.

but-
if you were to come to me
things would be different.

for i am 
the only way
to heaven
i am the truth
and i am the light

and there are no 
shortcuts, there are no
secret passages 
that will lead you to the 
heavenly kingdom

only through me
can you be saved.

will you come to me?

he asked, 
watching me and
waiting for my reaction. 

i am sorry sir,
i replied simply. 
i do not think i can
heed
your advice, for it sounds
too far-fetched
for my liking. 

thank you for speaking with me,
but i really
must 
continue on.

and with that 
i left-
but even as i walked
away,
i could still feel his sad eyes 
gazing after me. 

 
Jesus is the only Way, Truth, and Light that can truly guide us home y'all. He is the one true God, and He took our sins upon Him so that we could be with Him in heaven. That is, if we choose to become Christians. I hope this poem makes you think about it a bit.
