It Was A Dry And Barren Place Poem by Royston Nella

It Was A Dry And Barren Place

Rating: 4.0

It was a dry and barren place and you seemed so far away.
My soul was so warped and withered that I couldn't pray.
A long and difficult road had led me to this dark place;
for I had wandered from the path and could not see your face.

Such foolish things I often do, my whims to satisfy,
then I find that the joys they bring pass me so swiftly by.
I've sold my soul so cheap and then almost too late I find
that it's such a difficult road back when I change my mind.

Along the dark tunnel of despair I hear you call my name
With words of love and forgiveness you do not proffer blame.
There held firm in Your embrace; loves story is once more told.
For yet another wandering soul is brought into the fold.

A poignant and touching write. Liked the ultimate stanza. There is a glimpse of hope.

Let the sold soul come to the mercy for God and let it be grateful to all; one said- forgiveness is divine
