Life's Journey - Poem by jim foulk

When I come to the end
of life's journey
and look back at all my sin,

I will wonder if it all
was worth the pleasure
that caused me to fall.

Hardships and Tribulations I had,
opportunitys flew away from me,
now I stand here so sad.

Life is almost over for me,
second chances wished I had,
knowing I can face death with glee.

Knowing my Lord, has forgiven me,
rising up to Heaven's gate,
knowing I won't have to plea.

    Jim, you expressed my own feeling at times and did it better than I ever could. The rhythm and the rhyme just drew me along from the first line. Beautiful poem that was just a joy to read. Top Marks from me my friend. Thank you for sharing it.
