Changed Heart: A Poem for Easter

Paul is an Engineer. A graduate from a Catholic University. A rebel and a romantic...


If I can only press rewind

Go back to when the world is kind

That time when leaders are not blind

Truth about life and death I'll find...

We say hello...we say goodbye

So many times we tried to fly

Our hearts broken but still we try

To move on after every cry.

I wrestled with God day and night

Struggling to rise with all my might

I feel so alone in this plight

Why did I even take that flight?

There are no stars I'm all alone

Where's the light? I'm just flesh and bones

The Messiah is on the throne...

He knew me before I was born...

I’ve had enough of sad stories

Oh my Lord, I am so sorry….

My heart needs to see God’s glory

Dance in heaven’s territory…

Yes, indeedy sweetie!

I felt like I was reading one of my pieces here because I can relate to this so deeply.

We all have these thoughts...and feelings and it's all kinds of human.

Thanks I wrote this poem after going thru a low point and deciding to surrender my battles to God....
