The Child

Oh! How I prayed
to be thirteen again~
To return to the path
where it all began!

No ill will
toward my Brothers;
No accusations
spoken against my Mother!

But, those bridges
I crossed
time after time...
Never realizing
they were all gifts of mine!

Given to me
by my Father above...
I crossed those bridges,
looking for His love.

His lessons to me,
I did not recognize...
Little did I know,
they came to make me wise!

Wise to the evils
of the flesh and soul...
While, loving me
was His only goal!
