A Collection of Words

Email Poem | Today's Poetry


How have I spent my time so far in this life?
Was it wasted, and spilled;
Like a child's bucket filled to overflowing
From the whispering sea,
Carried by unsteady hands to fill the empty moats
Of my castles
Built in haste,
Then quickly forgotten?

How have I even come THIS far?
Stumbling and groping
Upon steep and unfamiliar pathways,
Afraid and often lonely
Reaching out to find my
Not once, but many times...
But then Regained.

How did I finally learn?
With mistakes,and errors...
Working through the difficult lessons
That have been presented,
With perfect wisdom,
From the hand of God,
to teach...
and to strengthen,
For the real test,
In the end,
it will matter.
