Poetry from Michael Robinson

Middle aged Black man facing the camera with his face resting on his hand
Michael Robinson


Lights come through the stained-glass windows to give warmth. 

Kneeling at the altar with prayers in my heart speaking to you.  

A closeness, only your loving embrace can comfort me. 


Moments of distress, your begotten son Jesus embraces me.  

His loving heart gives me a sense of redemption for my soul.  

Time after time when there has been a flood of sorrow came. 


Always, have my soul asked to be united to you through time.  

You have heard my prayers throughout my life and have answered.  

Through Jesus my savior speaks to a waiting soul for a life of eternity
