NO BRAGGING RIGHTS!

He claims no bragging rights,

‘Cause critics have him in their sights…

But to tell

What “little’s” done well,

Might be more of handy insights.

Colored pencils brought to mind,

A poorly-run business line…

Portraiture

A tough market endured,

He gave it a try for a time.

Only two portraits painted,

The recipient of one nearly fainted…

In laughter wrought–

The painting was not

Anatomically correct, but tainted!

In painting his ex-girlfriend,

Who married another by then…

Decently dressed

The wrong shaped breasts,

Were taken with good humor…ahem!

Most successful of his toils,

Then portraits of men and “goils”…

Was to write

Poetry delight,

Keeps him from emotional boils!

About Jonathan Caswell

Poet, author, servant of God the Heavenly father and the Lord Jesus Christ...working out his salvation with fear and trembling. - Not trusting in his own deeds, but depending totally upon the finished sacrificial work of Jesus Christ to be, by God's reckoning, a new creature, clothed in Christ's righteousness...which mortal humankind can never attain by their own weak efforts, apart from faith in Christ's work on our behalf. - College-educated, yet wise enough to see that what a man does will not be his ultimate identity nor affect how God sees him or her. - Called by God to do a very difficult thing...apart from God's grace, mercy and strength...to love the sinner (which we all--by nature--are) but hate the sin, which is only paid through Christ, God's Son, - My own God-given gift is that of being a Poet..showing that in all parts of life...God has a loving part in it...as hard as that is to always understand or perceive...given life's realities! Come join me on my journey of discovery?.
