Children Can Go Astray

Published: February 2006



Sometimes I worry about my son,
I ask myself, why what have I done?
I gave him love, I gave him life.
Why does he hurt me? Why do I cry?

One day, I was burdened, felt helpless and sad, I opened up a book
and read what it said.

Even if we were perfect parents, our children can go astray, Look at God,
He's our Father, He's perfect in every way.
After reading what I read, the guilt left my heart. It was no longer heavy it felt better by far.

I realized then that my son was grown and he chose the road he took on his own.
While my son is on his journey, I will continue to pray that god will be by his side and open his eyes someday.
