Just Like A Child

How I wish to trust
In life, no questions asked,
Hanging on God's words,
Confident and relaxed,
Just like a child.

How I long for conscience
As mild as the breeze,
Having goodwill with others
And always at peace,
Just like a child.

How I long for courage
That laughs at fear,
Knowing I'd surely be caught
When tossed in the air,
Just like a child.

How I wish to take
Life's journey with ease,
Jolly through thick and thin,
As cool as you please,
Just like a child.

How I need this grace,
So dear Lord, to you I come.
Help me to believe
And receive your kingdom,
Just like a child.

This poem reminds me the attitude of a child. Jesus is represented through a lamb, which symbolizes innocence. A child is the bearer of innocence. Thus, a child may be represented to expose the softness, the coolness and lack of impatient to any worldly achievement. I have written a poem where I have dealt with a sort of different essence that a child sometimes gets frightened, and it resembles to me as a warning that God dislikes evil and He wants us to stay away that evil which makes our sunny days cloudy.
