In His Way

 

In His Way

By Avlen L’rae

He wanted to talk

and be heard . . .

But youth stood in his way.

He prayed for words,

but his lips would not obey.

 

He wanted to fly

to the stars . . .

But gravity stood in his way.

He hoped for wings,

but never flew that day.

 

He wanted to dance

in the rain . . .

But the sun stood in his way.

He prayed for it to go,

but it was determined to stay.

 

He wanted to live

forever . . .

But death came one day.

He prayed and hoped and wanted,

but let things stand in his way.

    Sometimes we procrastinate the most important things in life,sometimes life itself!
