Truly Living

I am walking
slowly and steadily
my feet touching the ancient wood
leaving another piece of history upon it

I am moving across it
knowing it is secure
and Hoping that it is sturdy

I embrace my opportunities
running my fingers across them
like they are the ultimate treasure

I am giving
what I can spare
to those unfortunate
and graciously receiving
what is given to me

I am patient
keeping cool and keeping steady
knowing the time will come
when God says so

I am mindful of others
keeping evil thoughts to myself
pondering over each word
as if it was a precious jewel

I am believing
that the one above
sent his son
who is the healer of my sins
the redeemer for all

I am faithful
knowing I am forgiven
and thanking God for giving me
a second chance

I am Living My life up to the full
giving all I have
taking in the good times

I know when I am with God the Father
among the realm of angels
singing praises
kneeling to the savior

I will not regret my life on earth
because it brought me here
and that is all that matters.
