Life's walk


As I struggle in this my earthly life
Walking through unfriendly lands
Past fruitless trees and dry wells
Sleeping on hard rocks in the cold
I shall not weep nor curse no one
For I know why I go through this
A reason far greater than them all
As they pass away like the winds
But this i search for more than that
I want to know not what I have now
But, what he that’s above has for me

He trailed in the lonely wilderness
In the dusty lands; hungry, thirsty
On thorny weeds he placed his feet
And on rocks he put his back to rest
Looked not back for it was his past
He pushed on to his long destination
Only greatness he was destined, for
He knew that he had nothing alone
But the one who had him had it all

Get the armor on brothers and sisters
The struggle lives on within us today
It’s us to fight our small battles now
Fight our battles towards our home
Towards the promised victory ahead
For the war is and was won in his name
So victory is all we have in him for us
And he awaits our heroic return to home
Through the earthly trails we travelled

Poem of the Day

poet Tu Fu

Tonight at Fu-chou, this moon she watches
Alone in our room. And my little, far-off
Children, too young to understand what keeps me
Away, or even remember Chang'an. By now,
