Carrollton, TX, USA
This was written in response to one of the poems in the forum and my wife read it and decided we need to post it for others to read...
A life has a beginning, it also has an end...
And what hurts the very most is when
Our life's in the middle, --
We're looking at both ends'
We look back upon our youth,
Wish we still were there..
And yet the unpleasant things of youth-
bring "Fear", and tell us we don't "Dare".
We then look forward, at the future--
There's nothing there but "Old"...
Please, "LIFE" - stop dragging me..
You're making me feel "Cold"..!!
I see the bodies once so agile-
Now bent, & weak & bowed...
Please "LIFE"- quit pushing me..
Down that feeble "Road"
Somehow I feel insecurity "Here"..
And once again, here comes "Fear"-
So I'm caught in youth, behind strong bars,
And I'm miserable, can't we see.???
Caught up-here in the middle..
Somewhere between "A" and "Z"..
Time is your "Key"-"Patience" learn well-
We're here on "Earth", tween "Heaven & Hell".
There's always that struggle,
Gotta' deal with that "Fear"--
Of the "beginning" behind us-
And the "End" is too "Near".!!!
Jesus said, "Fear NOT - for I am the "Beginning and the End"...God Bless You-- May you find yourself & Him...
A man's heart often cannot see the light - because of the darkness of it's own motives.... - James David
