Our End Of The Stick

Sometimes, that old road we travel on, sure gets long
For miles and miles, think that you can go anymore
Old  Satan will come along and promise the easy way
If you take it, that is where you go wrong
In his face, you have to slam that door
Then get on your knees and pray

In our travels, we are never alone
We may feel lonely, even forsaken
The Old Devil is sure not the company we need
The Good Lord never leaves us on our own
Though sometimes we may need a good shaken
So it will be Satan that we heed

It has been said, "That we all have a cross to bear"
And sometimes that is sure a heavy load
But you might not know it, help is right there by your side
The only request is a simple prayer
Removes the barriers and rock from your road
But that is for you to decide

"God helps those who helps themselves", my mother used to say
And we have to show him that we are trying
He knows that Satan will always have another trick
But don't be afraid to ask him for help when you pray
And that you are not just crying
Because we all have to carry our end of the stick

    Danny, Have you ever heard of Tanque Verde Valley Ranch? That's where we went riding. It was some years ago and I wonder if the ranch is still there. Thanks, Carolyn

    Wonderful poem that displays your strong faith and wisdom, Danny. Although it's easy to succumb to temptation, a simple prayer will often save us from making mistakes. Really liked the quotes you incorporated in your poem -- ones to remember! Love, Carolyn
