Untitled - Poem by Lydia J. McFarland

Forgive me for being distant and staying away, I miss you all dearly...
in spite of my flaws and selfish way
Living the life as a chosen one is a heavy cross to bare
But if I just put one foot forward and don't look back...
God will help me get that place of rest (mental peace)
as I travel a long the path of righteousness,
I have friends and mentors like you, that help guide me...
even when I am blind to my own iniquities
At least one of you is always standing in the gap for me!

Forgive me for being distant and straying away...
from my duties and my calling...
There are things in this world that I have not
or will ever experience
because God chose a better life for me
and now I must succumb and walk in it.
Pouting in the spirit has proven to be futile
I do not want to be that disobedient daughter
that got washed away by the tide...
So Lord I surrender... please have your way.

    A heartfelt poem that I would title 'The Chosen Path'. I'll leave that with you to decide okay.
