Born Again

From the Born Inside Us Prompt from Tweetspeak’s Every Day Poems: “What is waiting to be born inside you today? Perhaps give it birth in a poem.”

“For you have been born again, not of perishable seed, but of imperishable, through the living and enduring word of God.” –1 Peter 1:23

Born Again

Healing emerged
From within
Born from inside
Letting new life begin

  1. that is where new life, real life really begins is inside...the exterior not so much...but if you look you can see the signs of life in someone...fruit on the tree you know...

  2. The renewal of spirit--such a wonderful thing!

  3. Born again--inspired and renewed. In the words, in the writing, I have found that. Great capture.

  4. What Audrey said. :) tightly written.

  5. Yeh Ha Shu A
