Another day begins,
The choice is mine,
Or, choose myself and misery,
Choose life – or, death.
I love the life path,
It is an eternal unfolding possibility,
Not limited by human intervention,
Every day full of God opportunities,
From the moment my eyes open,
My world is filled with laughter.
The death path is for the ignorant,
Self consumed with their own plans,
They will lead themselves and their family,
Into a life of destruction.
Continuous dissatisfaction will be their reward.
Even when I was ready to give up,
God was getting ready to avenge the lies,
The daily stench of contempt’s voice,
Vomiting up put downs,
Contempt hated laughter,
Every word tried to quench hope,
God was listening to my daily sobs of failure,
When I wilted under a continuous onslaught of hate,
He is waiting for the right time to set things right.
Contempt has chosen a treacherous path,
Death is the end point,
The only hope is to turn to God,
Life is the eternal hope.
