TODAY

 

Today my life is changed by the grace of God

 

I was once a child lost, with no care to be found,

I didn’t even care if I were six feet under ground.

 

Life as I perceived it had no meaning for me,

Because I’d allowed the enemy to blind fold me.

 

Which in turn made me unable to see,

Exactly what my Lord had in store for me.

 

That is until I prayed to have the enemy unloose me,

From the torture and the pain that I’d allowed him to cause me.

 

There was a time in my life when I honestly thought,

That I didn’t care about anything in this world.

 

Not myself, not my two little boys, not even my beautiful baby girl.

 

Now that I’ve come such a long, long way,

I know that it was the Lord who loved me every single day.

 

He has been my strength when I had none,

He has been with me always when I felt I had no one.

 

He was with me when I got off drugs

He was with me when I realized it was okay to love-

Myself.

 

So today I am a better person than the one I used to be,

Because

 

I’ve finally realized  

That the only person I ever had to prove this to was me.

I thought this was very powerful and full of strong images and suggestions- you took the reader along very well right to the end- where you changed him. Thanks for sharing this- I would love to link to your poem on my site www.poetrydances.com if that would be ok? If you could let me know - thanks again. Tony French
