The first poem I wrote that inspired me to write more, Surrender is a work of testimony of the healing power of Jesus Christ and the power of surrendering one's self to Him.

The blood seeps out of my overwhelming wounds

Hope fills my soul that the pain will be over soon.

But I try to go on with a broken heart

Ignoring that it has been pierced by a dart. 


A glimmer of light enters a dark cave

A voice of peace called me to be saved.

But I turned my head and refused the light

And I returned once again to the darkness of my night. 


Though I turned, I was unaware

It was the thought of being alone that I could not bear.

I longed for love from only one

Yet in that moment my fighting had just begun.


A prince of peace appeared to me

The light of life I chose not to see.

Why, O why do I reach for a knife?

Why do I ignore the happiness of life?


Or am I mistaken and I shall live alone?

With a deep, dark wish that at me one will cast a stone?

A way out I want, but what is it I need?

Perhaps a path for Jesus to lead.


I cried and I pleaded my life's just too rough.

But Jesus said to me, "My love is good enough."

I tried and I tried but I could not comprehend

With God above, I will always have a friend.


But not me, not me, O how I cried

But Jesus came over me and made my fear subside.

He opened my eyes and made me no longer blind

In Him, in Him, what Love did I find!


Unending love, amazing grace!

My anguish relieved from upon my face.

In his love, I shall not budge

Not once at all till the day he comes to judge.


O, glorify Him in all that I do!

Praise God, Praise God, for His love tis true!

It's so much more than only me and you.

Through Jesus Christ, my life is new.
