I have a friend that encourages me to write. Probably believes in my writing more than I do. Her name is Catherine Vietti. She has been a wonderful friend and a blessing since I began to write seriously. Here is a poem that she wrote and gave to me. I thought I would share it with you all. It is titled “Why?”
“Why are we here upon the earth?
Where can we, from this darkness, go? Why, from the moment of our birth, must we, so painfully grow?
Why, when we reach our brightest years, If joy comes, it soon flies by? Tho, the tears and terrors, torment without end – Leaving just the endless question – “Why?”
Listen…It’s really not a dream…Deep from the past…voices at last…Holding you fast, as you waken in wonder, they tell you – “Things are not as they seem…you will be shown, you’re not alone…(you should have known!)”
And, when, you think your life’s all wrong, then, somehow, something you always doubted before…will open a door.
And, your eyes will open, and you’ll finally see,
Loving one another is the key…
Jesus has already set you free!
