Poetry From The Heart by Barbara Ann Smith

A Turning Point

I came to the forks in the road
huge boulders blocked the passage.

It was a struggle getting to this point,
carrying the lies, sins, greed and wrongs
collected along the journey.

The load was heavy, my body ached,
the burdens of having them attached
were more than I could bear.

I was at a point - I couldn't go another step,
the weight was annoying and distracting.

Not knowing where to turn,
I was told, "Jesus could lighten my load
and wipe away the sins in my life."

Here at the forks, I gave Him my backpack,
the passageway is no longer closed--
I made it through today.
