The Mistake Of A Lifetime

Print this page    

How often we turn from the path that's unscathed.
How easy to follow the one that's been made.
Too seldom reflecting with genuine aspiration.
Neglecting my Savior, my Faith's been forsaken.
Reassured by the footprints that guide me astray.
Still depserately pleading for some other way.
Praying that somone will hear these soft cries.
Alone and slowly a part of me dies.
My footprints are forever left in that sand...
....from when i betrayed God and followed man.

I wrote this poem after a time of turbulation in my life consisting of drugs and alcohol. In recovery I rediscovered my God and how wonderful life has been since.
