I Will Run Again

Yesterday, I was having conversation on phone with a lady friend. Our discussion got deep and I shared few experiences I had when I lost my faith in God, how my life lost every sense of direction, decency and decorum.

I was not falling into temptation, I was looking for temptations to fall into me. I was literally swimming in the sea of sin. Alas, grace and mercy found me on the 6th of May, 2018! I found my feet back in the fold. My journey to greater glory in God began when I ran back to the Him.

This poem was inspired by God to reach out to those who are far from home and those straying and stumbling.

Far away from home
I have gone again.
In search of greener pastures
I plunged into pain.

From pillar to post
I ventured in vain…
Stinking and struggling
to get rid of disdain.

No one is close to me,
I can’t cry or complain.
My vote does not even count
I fall for every campaign.

I wish I can be high for life
as I drain this champagne.
But I’m done hiding,
I need some sunshine and rain.

I will run to my father
again and again…
To the old rugged cross
I will cling again and again.
