The Journey (A Poem)


Jaydee has been writing poetry since she was 12 and took an extra class on English Literature in High school.


On a day filled with clear blue skies
I look at the trees rising around me,
I walk this grassy path way
That goes as far as my eyes can see,

Overwhelmed by my surroundings
As the trees seem to loom and lean down,
Feeling conjested and trapped all of a sudden
As if I'm sinking into the ground,

But with this storm trying to pull me under
Help me God as I look to You,
And like a calming wind rushing over me
Deep down I knew...

These trees by the waters
That seem to sleep under the sun,
No matter how hot the day gets
They know the cooling night would soon come,

There are birds flying about
Some perched upon their young,
Instead of worrying about tomorrow
They sing their carefree song,

And just like that
You push through the storm,
With every cold gusting wind
You continue to stay warm,

Every heart ache and pain
That life threw my way,
He makes the sunrise
Bring in a new day.

God has planned everything
Though at times I forget,
Every decision I have made
All the people I have met.

It all adds up to me
How far I trusted his word,
It was always up to me
Every choice in this world.

And now I don't fear this path
That seems to shape my personality,
I don't fear the process
The knowledge, the Journey.
