Topic: Rejection (11/15/04)

TITLE: Because Certainty Loves Me

I walked along an unbeaten path;
It was unsure and unsteady;
I never could seem to get it right
‘Til the day my Father said “You’re ready;

Look to your right and see what is there,”
And I saw a glorious Light;
He opened my eyes and made me see,
Then gave me the will to stand strong and fight.

He made me a warrior of prayer
And said “Now follow after Me.”
He gave me great wings like an eagle,
Setting this rejected prisoner free.

Staying on that straight and narrow path,
When all you’ve ever known are chains,
Is not always so easily done,
But the glory of His Light still remains.

One step of Certainty at a time,
And the path became much more clear.
Now, I know that the world hated me
Simply because my Father holds me dear.

Treava, this is so good. You are one of the few poets who can get your message through, loud and clear. You are so elegant with your words. They penetrate the heart with knowledge and truth. You express your soul and your calling so well. Thank you, sweet lady, for being you and sharing you.
