In This Life - Poem by Clarence Prince

In this life, we need insight to follow the light
In this life, we must do just what is right
In this life, for many survival is a fight
In this life, for some comfort is out of sight
In this life, not all will find it pretty and bright
In this life, belief will bring us relief

Then live faithful with your hope
Just believe in the words of God
Follow not, those who are proud
As only in God's word
In this life, we'll ever learn how to cope
In this life, belief will bring us relief

In this life, everything has an end
In this life, our lives He just lend
However, there will come a time
According to His words
Hereafter, life will be happy and bright
In this life, only belief will bring us relief

In this life, we need His mercy and grace
In this life, let the Lord be your brace
In this life, however hard be your case
Make no waste, but with Him keep the pace
There is a God, who your tears He'll wipe
In this life, belief will bring us relief.

    i liked the repetition of the rhyming line at the end of each stanza.

    this is one line i disagreed with, though it is a nice thought i guess.

    this also sounds nice (even disregarding the nice rhymes) :

    In this life, we need His mercy and grace
    In this life, let the Lord be your brace
    In this life, however hard be your case
    Make no waste, but with Him keep the pace

    In this life, we must do just what is right.............what happens if we don't do just what is right i wonder.

    i'd 'like' to read just one poem by Clarence in which he sides with the Devil, but that wouldn't be Clarence!

    i guess the devilish poems are ones i'll have to write. :)


    this poem is bound to end up in my/our June 2016 'showcase for PH poets, found in my list of poems on my PH site.

    thanks Clarence.
