Glad I was wrong

His life had been
Drink and drugs
Not worthy of help
Saw him unclean

I was wrong

Lost his son
Partner walked away
Devoid of all friends
Until one special day

He was outside a church
The Pastor saw him weep
Had nowhere to call his own
Not even a place to sleep

Took him into his home
Gave him food and a bed
Turned his life around
Now a  better life is led

Studies his  bible daily
Helps all that he can
Has his own business
Drives his  own  van

Lives by Gods word
A christian now and true
always there for others
I am so  proud of you

I was wrong.

Penned 23 sept 2013

This is a true story, Marc is an inspiration to others. Has his own home and a van. Will turn his hand to anything to make an honest living.

    This is a tremendous and enlightening write my friend! Sometimes you just can't judge a person by what they have done in the past, you must look at what they are doing now because they could have changed! And this is especially true when they convert their life to (in my belief) Christianity! And it took a special pastor to see the goodness in this man to help convert his life into the good life! I really loved the essence of this awesome poem! What a fantastic piece, Great Work!!
