I felt frustrated
I was tired of the abusive words
I had to take action
To tackle the situation
I thought and thought but no idea came
Then a naughty idea came to my mind.
It was to run away
I had a rethink
But I had no choice
I thought of the disappointment it would bring
I thought of the heart break Iíll cause
But I didnít care
I had been pushed to the wall.
So on that Sunday morning
When everyone was busy
I dropped a note in my room
Informing them of my departure
But that Iíll be back.
I had never done it before
So I felt a little scared
But I had made up my mind
And there was no turning back.
So out of the house I sneaked
Not leaving any way to be traced.
When I got to my destination
I made up my mind to go back home
And become wayward
When I got back home
Everyone was screaming
They didnít understand the reason for my action
My Mom shouted the most
Different people were called to talk to me.
When they had all finished
My Dadie came in to my room
I felt ashamed of my action
He drew me to his side
And he gave me a hug
I was scared cos I expected a scold
He then said what I least expected
ďI love you and Iím still proud of youĒ,
Then he took an action
That changed my wayward decision
He gave me a kiss on the head
My Momie too didnít scold me
Sheís still proud of me.
When I remember that action
Why did they take such an action?
When they could have disowned me
I know and the answer is not farfetched
There are following Godís footstep.
No matter what you do
God will always love you.
* My Dadie and Momie are my parents in the Lord while my Mom is my biological mother
