When life sends us its struggles which tend to bog us down.
We seem to fret and worry which also brings a frown.
We forget about the journey that we all are on each day.
We never seem to take the time to get on our knees to pray.

We always want to be there; that next stage of our life.
If we are just single we think we need a wife.
If we have some children we hope they grow up soon.
And when the sun is beating down we then long for the moon.

You see we’re never satisfied to be just where we’re at.
When playing in the outfield we want to be up to bat.
If patience is a virtue then virtuous we’re not.
We forget about the journey; we can’t connect the dot.

If we slow our minds to think about going to and fro.
And ponder hard about the thought of who is in the know.
Then search the Word and ask for help from someone up above.
Then we can live the journey and be grounded in God’s love.

For Christ is our example when He came to earth to die.
He bridged the gap from here to there and His methods were not shy.
He healed the sick and crippled and gave the blind their sight.
But kept His focus on the future and the up and coming night.

For He was clear about His mission and the world with such great need.
He knew He was their only hope and was willing then to bleed.
He laid His life down willingly even though He had no sin.
He was clear about His purpose and the souls for which to win.

Now if we think of bridges and what they do for us.
Without them we are stranded so of this let’s discuss.
They span the greatest rivers and mountain passes way up high.
They help us get from here to there if on God we will rely.

Do you need a bridge today, to get your life in gear?
To show you that there is still hope when people live in fear.
Just let me introduce you to the one I know will care.
The only one that can help you get “From Here To There”.

Very nice! Your third verse was my favorite, I think you summed up the most common thought in a very different way. ^_^

Read your work all the way through without hesitation!

Nice work.

YOu've written a piece that almost anyone can pick up and own for themselves. Good job knowing your audience.

I am no expert on poems.. so I can't help there... but this holds an excellent message. I especially like this line, "Now if we think of bridges and what they do for us.
Without them we are stranded so of this let’s discuss.
They span the greatest rivers and mountain passes way up high.
They help us get from here to there if on God we will rely."


Kind of makes me think of Hinds Feet in High Places.

Nice Job!

Poetry is one of the most difficult forms for me to write, therefore, I was impressed by the amount of content you covered here. Very good, especially reaching out to others with the "invitation" at the end. :)

This was a beautiful poem, Carole. Loved it.
Joshua Janoski08/12/08
Carole, this has to be one of your best entries so far. I LOVED it! It really spoke to me, and it reminded me to learn to be content with the journey that I am on rather than always wanting things to be different in my life.

I so badly want to see this one place high this week. It is so good!
Helen Dowd 08/12/08
Very, very good. You have a treasure chest of thought packed into this poem. We all need to consider the truths you laid down. Thanks for sharing, and God bless!...Helen
