Changes Poem by Lee John Siebritz


From the gutter
To the pearly gates
We are all destined
To a brighter future

Sadly,
Not everyone is let in…
For those who make it
A true miracle occurs

Some abuse their fame
Others cherish their gifts from God

We are hear
By his mercy
Yet so many deny him

It is only when
His wrath is cast upon us
That we listen

Some learn via experience
Others don’t listen at all
It is only when we hurt
It is only when we experience pain

That we take heed
That we learn
That we realize
The path
That is destined for us.

The pot of gold is waiting to be claimed!
