It Was A Dry And Barren Place - Poem by Royston Allen

It was a dry and barren place and you seemed so far away.
My soul had warped and withered and I could not even 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 offer blame
There held firm in Your embrace; loves story is once more told
For yet another wandering soul is brought back into the fold.
