I have walked this road so many times in my life
And all it ever lead me to was strife.

Why was it so hard to go a new way?
I barely made it through day to day.

The path I chose was not to be
For it was dark, no light to lead me.

I tried to feel my way through
But I came to realize who I need to turn to.

GOD came in and shone His Light
I invited Him in and found new sight.

He guides my steps and shows me the way
The path Iím on, His light shines everyday.

He gives me wisdom and now I see
The rode I chose was not for me.

I find safety in His arms
There is no confusion, just a calm.

That soothes my soul and let me be
My mind is His and He is with me.

His love I feel is deep within
With Him on my side, I will always win.

I find peace within me
He is in me and there He will always be.

Some people search for perfect peace
Not knowing it is within their reach.

GOD is here, just call His name
All that He has is yours to claim.

Put Him first in all you do
And the rest will surely follow through.

Stay on His path and this feeling of peace will always be
GODíS sweet, sweet serenity.

Beautiful poem. It had a good rhyme scheme. I think a few of the lines were a little wordy and the word rode should be road, but overall I really enjoyed it.

I really enjoyed this sweet poem. It spoke right to my heart and filled me with emotions.I noticed a couple of tiny errors for example rode instead of Road. You did a great job of writing on topic. Even though you only mentioned the word once at the end there is no doubt that your story was about the need for rest. Beautiful bit of writing.
