I love sonnets. I’m not saying mine are amazing or anything, I’m just saying I love them. Writing them, reading them, and now posting them. I started writing some to God, inspired by the psalms. Here’s the first one I wrote.

God I am lost without your guiding hand.

I act as though I know where I’m going.

But really I’m just wandering this land.

And hide the fact to keep it from showing.

 

Still, knowing this I ignore your spirit.

And go where my lying heart would take me.

It always seems to land me in a pit.

Where my soul languishes in agony.

 

If only I could learn to follow you.

And keep your laws and decrees in my heart.

When trouble comes I would know what to do.

At last I would see your light in the dark.

 

Please keep calling me though I walk away.

Hopefully I will answer you one day.
