I Was So Lost

Misguided and blind
God's will had collided with mine
Infatuated with a buck
Full of violence and pride
A simple threat is not enough
I desired a sign
Eventually I kicked a bad habit
Drug free now
I even went to church last Sabbath
Thank God!
I've managed to mature as man
Still working on the pride and securing my plans
Back then
I was so lost
Branishing weapons...
Looking for a goal and some added protection
I didn't even know but that was discrepant
Because I couldn't find my soul until God was accepted
I used to hate when things were done to me
Now I know life's a test
You have to see it spiritually
We will be deceived, lied on, and provoked
Never give away good morals and hope
Satan sends critics everywhere he won't go
But if you focus on the hate you surely won't grow

    Being lost, actually a transition to be stronger...because in time we fell in a hole of darkness we learn to seek light...and when we gain the strength we will climbed and be stronger..if we weak then forever we fall...Lost mean to be stronger not to be weaker as it looked, glad it build u the right one_Soul (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Ambrose Bierce

by Ambrose Bierce

Once I dipt into the future far as human eye could see,
And I saw the Chief Forecaster, dead as any one can be--
Dead and damned and shut in Hades as a liar from his birth,
