On A Mission

Rating: 4.9
He woke me up this morning
To see a brand new day
So grateful for His mercy
I then knelt down to pray

Food to feed the hungry
Alms to give to the poor
A helping hand to someone
Never to want no more

Shelter for the homeless
That have no place to go
A comfort to the lonely
Say how I love them so

Bestow my earthly goods
To those who are in need
Giving of some precious time
Then sow some nurturing seed

Time that is much well spent
Is an important part of living
Show our concern for others
Seek a chance for our giving

Teaching the love of Jesus
To those that's eager to learn
Always going on a mission
My Angel wings I would earn

Every morning we see new brand day and we feel glad. Food is fed to hungry and every poor is taken care up with love. Earth bestows good things to us in love. Teaching the love of Jesus is a great perspective and learning values motivate mind. This poem is excellently penned.10

This is a beautiful poem, just reading it once soothes one's heart! Deserves 10/10. 'Bestow my earthly goods To those who are in need Giving of some precious time Then sow some nurturing seed' I liked this stanza the most. I've also read your biography, the three philosophies of life that you have mentioned are indeed very much inspiring.
