Treasure Island

Gabriel Gauci Maistre

(Pieta, Malta)

I'm Free


I may have struggles
Problems at home
Problems with friends

I may sin many a time
Even though I guarantee not to
Even though I attempt not to

I may have doubts sometimes
Doubts about what I'm doing
Doubts about Your plan

I may feel a stinging pain from time to time
Pain caused by other people
Pain caused by myself

I may blame you at times
Blaming you for ill times
Blaming you for my own actions

I may feel mad at you sometimes
Mad at the way things have turned out
Mad for all the wrong reasons

I may neglect you every now and then
Vowing that I won't do it again
Vowing that I'd pray more

I may do wrong to others from time to time
Sometimes without even wanting to
Sometimes wanting to as well

I may occasionally not listen to Your word
Listening to what You're trying to tell me
Listening to Your advice

I may be afraid to follow Your plan
Not knowing what to do
Not knowing if I should do it

I may have struggles
But in that hour of worship
I'm free

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
