~ The Wisdom of Life
The wisdom of life I earnestly seek,
for I have so much more to learn...
And to get where I'm going, I have to be meek,
for it cannot be bought, it is earned.
So through trials and gladness I travel life's road,
knowing God will share the heaviest of
While stumbling through darkness, and feeling so lost,
know that He's there, no matter the cost.
Whatever it takes, the tests of my time...
His hands are out-stretched, reaching for mine.
And even when life has dealt you a blow
or a series of them that makes you feel low,
that for a higher purpose you're just being primed
to meekly subject to the Master, divine.
