Poem Looking For A Higher Purpose

I'm always trying to please people around me. I feel alone, but now I want to do something for me. I want to create a purpose and an inspiration for myself. I ask the Lord to help me, and I know he will. I have to find myself when everyone puts up obstacles in my life. Now is the time. I'm tired of being fake.

Pushed Away


Published by Family Friend Poems March 2017 with permission of the Author.

I want to be brave.
I want to be smart.
I want to be saved.
I want a new start.

I'm constantly being pushed,
Pushed to the edge.
Knock me down, now I'm crushed.
I'm falling over the ledge.
People tell me it's going to be all right,
But how much longer do I have to fight?

I know I have a purpose in life,
But how do I reach it when I'm trapped?
Nothing to do but wish into the night.
When I ask, it's never too far from being denied.
Save me or join me; just don't say no.
I promise I won't let you go.

We're not too far behind now.
A little further up is where our future lies.
Change is something I want to allow.
From here on out, all I'll do is rise.
Lord, I need the faith.
I need the strength.
