Everything Happens For A Reason - Poem by David Harris
Who gave me the title and suggested I write it.
Everything happens for a reason
when something in our lives
changes and we walk
a different road.
We don’t question
why we took a different route we just do it.
When I joined a western re-enactment group
and was called upon to play a priest.
Little did I know
that down the road a bit
I would be able
through my words of comfort
to help people in distant lands.
Nor did I realise
that a chance meeting
with an old classmate on the Internet
would take me in a new direction
and help me fulfil a lifelong dream.
Making me look to the future
out the depth of despair.
What is next?
I don’t really know,
only whatever happens
it will happen for a reason
and I won’t know
the reason just yet.
Therefore in every life
there are turning points,
a new road we must travel.
The reason for it
will remain a mystery
until we reach the answer,
as everything happens for a reason.
