Prayer Poem

Poem About Struggles And Strength

I wrote this as a prayer. The shoes are a symbol of my struggles and strength. My faith will lead me out of worn shoes to a place where no struggles or worries or shoes exist.

These Ol' Shoes


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

Lord, it's a mountain you gave me to climb,
and I've had my share of mountains behind.
Each time I've climbed I depended on faith
to guide me along with each step I take.
But Lord, the path gets so rocky at times;
I feel I can't go on in these ol' shoes of mine.
Rugged, worn, torn and abused,
I sometimes forget the purpose for which they are used.
Please give me strength to continue on.
Please give me courage for this journey unknown.
And when my shoes no longer hold to my tired and weary feet,
please help me to remember shoes are not needed on heaven's holy streets.
