What Lies Ahead


Tread not on grass
softly splattered by the morning dew
awaken not harshly,
the colorful flowers
waiting to open in the morning rays of the sun
just pause a while and
breathe in the clean fresh breeze
as it hums gently between the trees
life has given you a new lease

it has given you another day
the sun has given you a golden ray
in this you have no say
for you have much to do
so many miles to walk
in this long ardous journey of life
what lies ahead
noone can ever say
but God will show you the way
and He will be true
