Lessons Brought Upon Us

Before birth, we’re each assigned a life path:
A different one for me and you
And as the years bypass us, fulfilling our true
Destinies seem harder and harder to do

It is written that for comfort, to ask the Lord
Guidance in not our will, but his
Then unto us is given the gift of 
Understanding for what was and what is

And though, we’re born defiant 
With a streak of stubborn very strong
In time, we realize that our ignorant 
Independence is where we went wrong

And, that’s when we sit humble 
While admitting our mistakes
Asking for forgiveness and
Willing to do whatever it takes

Then too, we discover that 
We haven’t done so bad
And for the lessons brought upon us,
Today, we are glad.
