The Naughty Boy Poem

There was a naughty boy
And a naughty boy was he,
For nothing he would do
But create misery
He was such a naughty boy
They threw away the key
He spent years alone
In the Penitentiary
Locked up in a hole
With nowhere left to run
He finally sobered up
From a life of staying spun
He started contemplating
All that he had done
Fell to his knees
Asking of the Son
Please help me find away
Help me learn to teach
If but a single soul
I can somehow reach
Please give me the strength
Help me find the will
To write out my life
Expressing how I feel
Now that naughty boy
Has truly been set free
Being all he can
For his family

    Michael, from the pitts of hell to the wings of angels come your beautiful words. In order for one to have a story to tell, they must have lived it, you did, and now look at what God is doing in your life......Wisdom is not something one is born with, one must live, and learn, and know the difference from right, and lived it, you learned, and now you can love to you, and yours, always, Christy
