“THE SWORD” by Angela Bierbaum

I see, I see
A blade in front of me
One with many jewels
And a handle
Made from stealth

I know, I know
That this sword
Is supposed to show
Me the different sides
Of myself

The first,
The ruby
Represents the fire
In my personality

The second,
The diamond
Represents my own

The third,
The sapphire
Represents my
Distinctive personality

And, the fourth
The sunstone
Represents my

I feel, I feel
That this sword made from steel
Has meaning behind it all
So I’ll wait until I’m called
Up to fight

For the glory of God
I’ll watch, and I’ll pray
And hope to be His
Forever shining Knight

I hope that you can use this as an inspiration to use your gifts and talents for the Lord. I thought I should make a poem that any reader VISUALIZE.

Every time you look at this, think of a few good qualities on your sword (yourself) that you could use to witness or work for God. And, I hope that you will have the opportunity to fight in His army, be one of his Knights, and use your sword against Satan.

God Bless,

A Real Gem :-)
by: Melisa

Thank you for sharing this poem, Angela. I think it creates a wonderful visualization and can be used as an inspiration to us all since there are many of us who shy away from taking a stand for our Lord or who don’t know what their gifts are or their identities. I love the way you used the descriptions of the gemstones as representations of you own traits. This is a strong piece that provides encouragement and reminds us also to put on the full armor of God. (Ephesians 6:10-18)

Whoa! Angela. That's amazing! It's so rhythmic it's almost musical. And it is indeed very visual. And inspirational. And... sensational.
