Poem About Turning Your Life Around

My name is James Richmond Jr., and this poem tells about a short time period in my life.
About three and a half years ago I was struggling with drugs and alcohol really bad. I had been in and out of rehab centers, but for the life of me, I couldn't seem to stay sober. That was my breaking point, so I decided to give it one more shot. In June of 09, I went back in again, and while I was there, the Lord turned my life around, and that's where this poem gets its title, The Breaking Point.

Breaking Point


Published by Family Friend Poems July 2015 with permission of the Author.

When I turned it over to Jesus,
It was a cold and dreary day.
I was drowning on dry land,
But he washed my sins away.

I had drifted back into misery,
When he took me by the hand.
I knew how much he loved me,
When he pulled me out again.

I was at the breaking point,
There were nowhere to turn.
I was headed for the furnace.
And I was sure to burn.

The sinful life I had lived
Was coming to an end,
When a shower came from heaven
And restored my life again.

When I lost my train of thought,
It was hard for me to see,
But the world is slowly turning,
And it's not gonna stop for me.

I can hear a ship coming,
Powered by the Lord.
It's headed for his kingdom,
And I want to be on board.

I've been to other places,
But God has brought me back.
Now I want to go to heaven,
To see what that is like.
