Changed

I remember the early  days of my youth
I struggled hard to find the truth
I looked for answers high and low
I prayed God would hear me here below
I rebelled  against conformity, and societies curse
I  rejected authority and life got worse
I had a reputation in my home town
I never let anyone talk me down
I found one day when they finally left me alone
I never had visitors, no one would phone
I became despondant and tried to end the pain
I wanted to put a bullet through my worn out brain
I cried out to God for a last straw to grasp
I found Jesus that day and held him fast

    Nice poem. God bless. Indeed, God is a good shepherd. May God lead those children who've been lost in their paths. :)
