I spy the remnants of my life

Surviving all its stress and strife

I sense the depth of my defense

While reaching out for recompense.

Where are the goals I thought I had

That separate good from the bad,

When will I learn to use my time

In aiding those who dare to climb ?

I find myself caught in the net

That seems to have no exit yet

Please show me, Lord the way to go

To help our lives and values grow !

The heart is full with joy complete

For love of God is ever sweet

There is no reason to complain

Nor purpose needed to explain

Life’s forecast dwells in peace with thee

And basks in God’s divinity !

Tis said that life’s a learning curve

While on this road one must not swerve

Remember to keep goal in mind

Let moderation help you find

Those aims that you are searching for

And keys to open freedom’s door !

The world’s no longer black and white

Its color code is sheer delight

Ranging from dark to brightest light

With every tint from day to night !

There may be some eight billion souls

Whose values differ from their goals

While many playing other roles

Find life demanding greater tolls !

I love You Lord, I know You see

That I have placed my faith in Thee

Though time has passed I feel the loss

And why You suffered on that cross !

 

LAST DESPAIR ( 2016 ) 2016/05/09

I’ve reached the crossroads of my life

The way’s ahead replete with strife

No matter where I search to find

The road I seek does wind and wind.

There is no path that ‘s straight to tread

Both for the living or the dead

My body’s weary, my heart worn

As peace and rest from me are torn.

I fail to see the sense of it

Sometimes I’d simply like to quit

But I’m sure God will still be there

To help us face our last despair !

 

FINAL GOAL ( 2015 ) 2015/09/12

There is a basket that sits on a shelf nearby

Full of ideas that failed as other hopes did die

It holds the remnants of the life that I desired

When time was young and no special talent required.

There in that simple basket rests a thousand schemes

Amongst the fabric, ribbons, needles, plans and dreams

Pieces of wood, paper, cotton, wishes and bows

All of them part of a past that nobody knows.

The basket is silent, it never had a voice

Like those who filled my life yet never made a choice

Each has their secret cache that only they control

And each at last decides what is their final goal !
