When I was young I always believed there would be a day,
My life would come together because I had found my way.
To have security and never have to be concerned or worry,
To live life at my pace each day and never to be in a hurry.
That was just one dream of a completely material being,
One who measured life by others & them never agreeing.
Seeing only what was directly in front & that I could touch,
Never realizing all I saw and all I wanted was just a crutch.
Only when I was alone surrounded by my own shattered dreams,
I was finally able to see that I lived my life only by others schemes.
I could clearly understand now what I knew in my heart was true,
That life had a purpose create by the One who truly loves me too.
God showed me the answer to living my life was always in His book,
I just need to take the time with an open mind and have a good look.
I finally understood this life is to show our faith in God and His Son,
That true rewards only began after our life here is finished and done!!
