Poems from Pollsmoor

A Prayer
Lord, I’m tired of living this life
Tired of being this person who has to struggle and strife
I have wandered off into a world doing my own thing
Not realising the pain and sorrow it might bring.
Dear Lord, I have never been so lonely and afraid
Cause the devil is now bringing forth destruction and hate.
Lord, I’m tired of having to wear this mask
Please come and bless me with a brand new task
I don’t want to be this person that Satan wants me to be
Lord, I want to accept what you give for it’s lovingly free
Lord, I do not want to go back where I once was
Cause back there I knew no love and was continually breaking your laws
Please help me that I don’t make the same mistake
For life is short and my soul is at stake
So please come help me with this struggle of pain
For living my life with the devil is truly inane

My Desire

My desire in life is something that I must bear
For good things come to those who wait if you would just learn how to share,
But how can we learn if we do not accept
That this is a journey of life and death?
But someone once told me that life can be kind
If you would just find that eternal peace of mind;
It takes hard work and some great sacrifices to achieve one’s goal,
Also honesty, endurance and patience and God’s love in your life is the greatest role
For it’s when you share that God’s blessings fall upon you
And through faith you’ll be amazed by the good things he’ll do…
