“The world does not revolve around you.
You are nothing but a speck of dust.
The universe is many a splendor and utterly vast.
When you are gone, nobody will miss you.”
Harsh words from a friend yet truthfully said
Like the flowers and grasses in the fields
Someday I will wither, die and fade
Wishing my time and talent have enough to yield
There’s a time for everything – hellos and goodbyes
Time to weed out those who used me in their favors and lies
Time to let go those who have kept up with me long enough
Forced a smile and held me up when the going got tough
While others have moved on to achieve milestones
I seem stuck at the pit stop with lessons piling up as stones
Still I dare not ask why, perhaps not ready to know the reasons
Deep inside, I cling on to His Truth amidst the changing seasons
My journey through Life is as bizarre as my temperament
A test of faith, requiring momentous patience and trust
Mostly irrational events unfolding, each day seems too eager to pass
I run around it with extreme caution, even if it’s a temporary assignment
O my LORD, Keeper of my soul, please sustain me with Your Love
You are everything I need, and I will offer all that I have
May this expedition bring Your Best Legacy to shine brightly
To reflect more of Your Glory and less of me
To devoid myself of the worldly passions, I seek
To be filled by Your Mercy and Grace
That in Your Guidance and Divine Provision, I may speak
How beautiful it is to be led by You through this maze.
