Poem: Good News

My name is Candice Ballinger and I am a published author and poet. I love writing poetry of all kinds.

Good News

My ears are screaming,

taking all of my strength

why do you plot against me?

What destruction awaits you

you're wearing your sin like clothes,

whisper to the master

He will always remove them from your soul,

I will trust in your truth

my sons will embrace your grace

and they will be among God's chosen,

thriving and suffering for the good news.


All will bow to the lamb,

kneeling before him,

pressed against the dirt

worshiping his glory;

trusting in his name

forever resting in his embrace,

save me from myself Lord

show me how to be,

tell me I am capable

remove this veil from my eyes;

so that I can see,

am I really beautiful?

Surely you can set me free.
