Gained...

Who hasnt been through some heart felt pain,
who hasnt cried on their knees in the rain?

We've all shed many tears,
been scared by our fears.

We may have different ways of living,
 but God has one way of teaching,
it doesnt matter what anyone is preaching.

Pay attention closely to the voice within,
there is where Jesus explains the worldly & Spiritual sin.

The right that we dont do is wrong,
it doesnt matter how you sing your song.

The sun gives the day to the night,
now the moon & stars shine dimly bright.

A twinkling from far away,
I pray your day went okay.

In the distance the seas crash against walls of stone,
like emotions & feelings do when theey're left alone.

Let not the site be your worry,
behind closed eyes is another story.

With your hands crossed,
pray with me for the lost.

Having been there & done that in life,
wisdom is knowledge gained from the strife...
