Just Pondering

Secretly in my heart I am weary
I ponder my purpose from God above
even though I know God's love
this life at times is still teary

I know my life has not been in vain
but I still feel lost on this earth
I have been this way since birth
It's God's love that keeps me sane

Counting my blessings in this life
to a stranger I do openly smile
hoping in their heart it stays awhile
a smile back would be twice as nice

So is this my purpose from God
to spread a little kindness and love
sent to us from the big guy above
if this is the plan I could use a nod

Edward J Ebbs - 10-02-2011 (draft)

    Welcome aboard, Ed. My middle name is Edward. Your poem ponders some good points. I like its honesty in relating a person's feelings in life. I find praises to God is comforting when I need affirmation.
