Last Night I was going through my filing cabinet and I found a poem that I have written as a teenager. I’m so proud of this poem that I ‘ve written and would like to share. I hope you enjoy!
This Road We Call Life
Dear Lord, please hold my hand and walk me down this road we call life.
If I should start to venture in the wrong direction, please Lord guide me to the light.
If I should come along an obstacle to hard for me to handle;
Please help me Lord overcome the darkness by lighting me a candle.
Down this road there’s many struggles and many tears I’ve cried;
Continue holding my hand dear Lord and help me walk on by.
Stay strong I always say, with all the days that pass;
I cannot do this on my own so to you I’m running fast.
Everyone needs a friend to help them walk all day;
As I keep on searching for, there’s none along my way.
When I turn and realize and think I’m standing here alone;
You dear Lord squeeze my hand and show me that I’ve grown.
I am old enough to see that at times I’ll still be weak;
For everything I want to learn and out for it I seek.
Still with you by my side you still help me every day;
Keep holding on to me Dear Lord, I never want to stray.
Now I’ve traveled for many years and keep on walking these same roads;
Laughter, tear, joy, and fears, I’ve taken on many loads.
I’m going to keep on walking, this life I’m still in;
Lord I pray that you will lead me to the light, when my journey ends.
