Poetry From Within

The Homepage, Poetry & Artwork of Steven R. McEvoy

This is my homepage but most of my web presence is on my blog, Book Reviews and More. It is a collection of my published and unpublished writing, mostly book reviews, with a few articles and reflection's. If you want to poke around here the key sections are Poetry, Artwork, and Lists.

I have written poetry for as long as I can remember. And I try and read a book or 2 of poetry each year.

From Within, Strength; From Without

We often see ourselves as strong,
  Independent, Individualistic
Then if God so wills it, the veil is lifted
  From our eyes.
We then can see the frail shells,
  That we really do be,
Then turn to strength,
  The strength of others
That God provides thru those that we love
The gifts that others reveal,
  Their strength and their gifts.
The special friend, The best friend
  That’s the way to describe the two of you
  The best way to describe you.
For that’s what you both are,
God has provided your for me,
God has furnished you wit an insight of
  Who and what I am.
He’s revealed to you my soft, sticky
  Center and you were not revolted.
You Stick by me.
You challenge me.
You encourage me.
You trust in me.

A best friend is what you both are,
  And prayerfully always will be.
