Life

Working hard, filling our days,
Meeting deadlines, getting caught in a maze.
Caring for family, spending quality time,
All of this before the midnight chime.

Making goals, seeing them through,
Knowing others are watching to see how you do.
Someone is waiting - it's a rush, so just hurry
No time to saunter, just get ready and scurry!

Another day comes, a repeat of the last.
The hours fill up, then the day is past.
How can we stop this roller coaster ride?
We're missing the real life - the much brighter side.

Seeking our purpose, we search 'til we drop,
Too weary to pursue it, but not ready to stop.
Which purpose is the one meant just for us?
It is all so complex - such a bother and fuss!

Ah, now I understand, I am beginning to see…
Life is our bridge to eternity!
In order to get there, our focus must change.
It may be difficult and seem a little strange.

The first step is the most important of all -
To set aside OUR goals and listen for God's call.
Relinquishing our needs, we begin to understand.
We need to seek guidance about what God has planned.

God, our own creator, knows what is best for us.
He'll provide what we need if we let go and trust.
When we lean upon Him, He will guide our way.
Life will have real meaning as we embrace each day!

Peggy, I loved this poem. It was such a good picture of the rat-race that we get ourselves caught up in way too often, but with those wonderful last three stanzas, it was brought to a perfect, satisfying and uplifting conclusion. Well done. With love, Deb

Like Sharon, my heart just leapt as I read this very anointed poem. Yes, we must relinquish our lives to the Father, knowing that He has a good end in mind for us. I've been so blessed by your poem... reading it from here... on the Rock. :::smile::: Bless you!

It's so easy to get carried away by life's buffet of distractions especially when we are carrying loads of responsibilities. Thank you Peggy for reminding me of what is truly important in life. Sitting before the throne of God and listening to His call. Thank you for the beautiful message of your well crafted poem. Blessings, Gloria

This poem of life, breathes such truth. As I find myself knocking of 40's door, I wonder what have I accomplished and how much I have just wasted. May I seek to follow His leading and purpose, as that ageless portal carries me thru to the other side of 'Life'. Thought-provoking and encouraging all at once... I love your writings! :)

Peggy, this is wonderful! I love it! I loved these lines especially, ("Ah, now I understand, I am beginning to see… Life is our bridge to eternity! In order to get there, our focus must change. It may be difficult and seem a little strange.") Oh may God just grab our attention with His all encompassing love, till we get our eyes fully focused right on Him! This just makes my heart leap. Love, Sharon
