Thread: Night of Fire

  1. #1

    Night of Fire

    Written by my 15 yr old son.


    I stand here on the hilltop.
    Watching Zeus' wrath on the Earth.
    The ground rumbles under my feet.
    As if it is an ogre's birth.

    I walk down the street.
    Only sound, the roaring of a frog.
    Calling to another,
    Love, come from the bog!

    Together as I do.
    They sit and watch the show.
    The lightning's brilliance.
    And the fairies' glow.

    It is so beautiful.
    As if in a dream.
    But I know it is not.
    Because I don't have to scream.

    I see true magic at work.
    Lightning sparkles in the skies.
    Just as majestic
    As the radiance of the fireflies.

    Finally.
    After all these years.
    A moment of peace.
    To bury stress and fears.

    In the midst of brilliant chaos.
    I feel true joy.
    Guilt and sorrow seem to disappear.
    Going back to the innocence of a boy.

    yes, he did a good job. But I will say I'm praying God will change his heart and he will someday change "zeus" to GOD!~ He's told me Christians are "closest" to truth, but he doesn't like our stance against "the gay issue." sigh...

    In that case, I'll be praying for him.

About us
The PuritanBoard exists to promote robust discussion of theology in a Confessionally Reformed context. The modern trend of short statements of faith belies the many places where the Scriptures teach with great clarity. Though our respective Reformed confessions sometimes disagree, we believe that Churches have been given the gifts of teachers and elders to lead to the unity of the faith and the result of that unity is a Confessional Church confessing together: "This is what the Scriptures teach." The Confessions are secondary to the authority of Scripture itself but they arise out of Scripture as a standard exposition of the Word of God.
