Choose To Dance In Sunlight - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Choose to dance in sunlight,
And refuse the clouds
That appear on your path!
Don't ask 'why? '
Just do it!
And get through your struggles!
God did not start you on this journey
To seek gloom and sorrow!
That was your wish...
When you decided to look away from Him!
And you keep doing it again and again
AND again!
What are you attempting to win?
More heartache?
More sadness?
More disappointing setbacks carried within?
Choose to dance in sunlight,
And refuse the clouds
That appear on your path!
Don't ask 'why? '
Just do it!
And get through your struggles!
God did not start you on this journey
To seek gloom and sorrow!
That was your wish...
When you decided to look away from Him!
And you keep doing it again and again
AND again!
What are you attempting to win?
More heartache?
More sadness?
More disappointing setbacks carried within?
You can do that if you wish.
But life for you is not meant to be lived like this!
