The Snare Is Broken – A Poem
This short poem is inspired by Psalm 124, which is also rather short but full of hope.
The Snare Is Broken
entangled in the snare
of the evil one
hopeless and dying
struggling to be free
my struggles tightened the snare
entangled me more
broke the snare
clearing the way
for me to escape
clinging to His side
my greatest hope is Christ alone
I am set free and alive

Set free – to live life to the full with no fear of death … that’s grace indeed … smiles
Your heartfelt poem is full of feeling and faith.
I like the hopeful outlook this poem broadcasts. Very nice!
The truth, and repentance, is indeed the only way out. Christ is forgiving.
yes, he has over come…
and so we should live
and act like it…smiles.
So true – that the harder you try to get away, the more resistance you encounter. There is only one way out. Excellent.
Beautifully expressed, Linda!
Grace is indeed a precious gift!
