Destiny - Poem by Barbara Haskell

I'm barely able to walk with a cane,
body is filled with so much pain,
so much time lost, laying down,
my cries the only sound.
Please, give me a break!
Somebody tell me there's been a mistake!
I wasn't nearly through,
so much more I wanted to do!
For an awesome lark,
I'd take my grandkids to a water park.
I want to take them on mountain hikes
and to the beach, riding bikes.
I want to take them to camp and fish,
is it just going to remain a wish?
I want to teach them things I wish I'd been taught
and laugh with them-alot!
I long for this and more to be,
are just pain and tears my destiny?

    If your faith & hope is one third as powerful as your ability to convey the written word.....time, patience & the belief that one does have some control over their destiny, may indeed have a turn of the cards in your favor, my dear.Great work here.You have a gift, Barbara....which if utelized in its full measure, will also serve as a vehicle to Cope and Vent.

    Don't be sad just think that the whole world is with you. There are no mistakes but lessons in life. Have faith in God. He will do everything ok one day just have patience and courage in you. Sometimes pain tells us what exactly the life it is.
    Pain is a part of life. Enjoy the pain then one day it will go away I am sure. I know God can't be so merciless on anybody.
    My life is just like you but I never take the things that way.
    Your Poem is good.
    Just go through my biography
