New "My Form Created" Poem

 Submerged and Washed Away


When to this world one's soul does stray
As one partakes it's temporal ways
One is submerged and washed away

It's then only the truth be the way
To rise above tides of sin in a blaze
For in this world the soul does stray

It's only to His name one stray does say
In truth be rinsed in that of praise
As one's sins submerged and washed away

One either submerged in the way of the land
Or baptized in the waters of the truth
It's your decision which to you is grand

For when one emerges from sin uncouth
Where one submerged in truth rise above
The sins of the world that brought untruth

Being rinsed in Christ there's tides of love
When in this world the soul does stray
With His love one emerges in truth thereof
Then one's sins submerged and washed away

Thoughts: As a Christian, it's important to be baptized as the Lord commanded. " He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not will be condemned"  (Mark 16:16, NKJV). Just as important is the understanding being new in Christ, "Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creature; old things have passed away; behold, all thing have become new" (2 CO 5:17. NKJV), and being submerged, one's sins are washed way.
