A Penny for yor God Part Two

Our own tomorrow, to make ours once again this thing not borrowed, something 
that is ours, and ours alone but can we follow, this thing of sorrow, this thing called 
life that brings its own, grievance we see beneath its hollow, this thing called SOUL 
can we follow, and watch it bring life to that thing called … “tomorrow”, and put an 
end to that thing called sorrow. So take a penny from the pocket you wear, and 
throw it up into the air, close your eyes … don’t care where it lands, but within your 
life’s “grain of sand”, know that within it … there is a plan, within your life, your grain 
of “sand”, for just a Penny … the price of a thought, will bring you solace, and the 
thing you sought, to get this thing … eternities promise, and just for a Penny, he’ll 
see you too, in the streets of gold that we all have heard of, as foretold, all we have 
to do is believe in a penny, because it buys us this, anything that we may wish, but 
FAITH can buy us this, a mansion of glass we wished we had, when it was just a 
penny, that was all we had, so to pay a “Penny” … our God will give us, a thing 
that’s called … lasting existence, so it’s true a penny can buy a thought, but Faith 
can get this thing called GOD

    Such inspiration in this prose...that grain of sand, if we can see it through enlighted eyes, can bring peace of 'knowing'. What a wonderful lesson! :)
