KEEPING FAITH

Look at me now fifty and still in the hole
Never figured it’d be this way once I got old
Seems somehow I got misdirected  down the wrong road
When  I started on life’s journey I had a totally different goal

I had my dreams of big houses and fancy cars
Hanging out with big shots ,in the hip fancy bars
But seems my dreams were as hard to reach as the stars
And trust me I’ve tried you can tell from my scars

Now I only blame myself , so don’t be mistaken
I spent far too much time giving when I should’ve been taking
Had all the opportunities they were mine for the raking 
But did not take advantage ,,,,and it’s not worth the faking 

See when I started out  ,I was at the perfect pace 
My heart, my mind, and even Jesus was in the right place 
In the prime of life it all disappeared without a trace
And somehow  I lost faith and fell short of some of my grace

looking back on all that i see how much has changed
i been blessed with a wonderful life forget the fame 
might not have it all but i have my health ...cant complain
SEE I HAVE A NEW LEASH ON LIFE AND GOD HOLDS THE REINS..

the moral to this story and I've learned it to be true 
if you don't give up on God he wont give up on you
