Young Developing Writer

23 May

I wanted to share this poem written by my thirteen year old grandson, Dylan. Who knew he could write at this depth? Who knew he could write at all? Check it out:


Born with my key and an unfulfilled dream

He has set for me the clear unsolved mystery

Miracle inside the clouds and above little rocks

A man on a mission no challenges on his clock

In a world with not yet complete restoration

But backwards turns in a box of his creation

A mistake be never made

But a fallen angel still living in fear

Wipe these tears clean

Let the blind man see

Problems and mistakes be made

Like the content of Biblical studies is gone

Under a perfection this planet surpasses very easily

A whistle in my wind

A grace in his power

And a first time position

In poem and in this quest

I don’t expect to impress

But share would like to

See a dazzle in His presence

Gives me peace and builds our protection

And ending with this remember I’m doing this for Him.

Of course I’m a proud grandma. I have a granddaughter, Brandyce, who writes poetry and skits. She too, is very gifted.

When your child or grandchild shows an interest in reading or writing, encourage them to develop their gifts. Who knows? One of them may be the next Edgar Allan Poe or Jerry B Jenkins.

    Thank you Darlene. His school teacher told my daughter that she needed to read his journal they do in class. She said she specifically looks forward to reading his entries.

    DiAnn, I’m discovering writing talents in several of my grandchildren. I’ll bet you will too. It makes a grandma proud. Ha!
