My world is a world filled with books and words. It starts with the Good Book to give understanding and direction So as soon as I get up I send praise up then look up His message for me. I read many books and poems because words  inspire  me. Then I share to make you smile. This is big part of the world of Kevin Bates Poet Author & Speaker

Before Me

Before me there’s blood of my forefathers.

Lord Jesus on the cross humbles us all.

Ultimate sacrifice to give Himself on the altar.  

Sins of man is it worth the Redeemer life?

Hail the King He’s risen scream and holler!


We honor our heritage and the holy word.

In the path I walk the lines in pleasant places.

Not to lose focus yet commit to my works.

Everlasting on the path will not be deferred
