Goodbye To Everyone - Poem by David Harris

The other day I felt like leaving,
packing up my tools and going,
saying goodbye to everyone,
then disappear into the yonder blue.
However, something stopped me
its hard to say what it was.
Something inside said do not do this,
you will only live with regret.
I took myself a side
weighed up the pros and cons
and realised I’d be better
just to stay just where I was.
I could trim down my output
and experiment a bit;
do a few things
I hadn’t done for a while.
I know some of my friends
will be happy that I’ll stay,
yet no doubt, there will be some.
Who will wish that I had gone away.

    David, maybe the Lord has a message for you.Just pray that He will reveal it to you in time..or maybe, the Lord is teaching you to be humble..I myself, sometimes felt like what you did. And i come on my knees and ask God to reveal to me things that blocks His way. And the Lord is good, He is faithful. I learned the hard way, i learned to be humble..We are not perfect..i am not either, nor an exception. In the weakest point of our life, God will be there to make us strong. So cheer up. There are many of us here in PH who loves you. Only a few, because they themselves does not love themselves, . They need our love.
    Love you,

    You can't win them all David, we all get that feeling of escape, but it isn't always greener on the other side of the hill. Play safe. Nice write.
