It Answers All

Written by: Ronald Bingham

 

This day was dark, gloomy, a distance storm was in the air.
 As I sat there drinking my morning coffee in my old easy chair.
I felt a heaviness I'd never known.
 Like my heart had lost all compassion and had turned to solid stone.

I tried not to listen to those voices echoing in my head,
 but they were so overpowering with the words that were said.
Taking away all the goodness I've ever known,
 a feeling of helplessness as the bitterness now had grown.

What had conspired these terrible thoughts?
 Who or what has taken over and caused me to be so down and distraught?
I had no answers but somehow I knew I must find out,
 what was causing this overpowering depression, this hopeless doubt.

Then I saw the answer that would ease my pain,
 sitting there covered with dust, containing the answers that are so plain.
As I picked it up and wiped away the dust, I saw dark clouds start to roll away.
 Almost like an old friend that was there to make it all okay.

This old book has saved many lost souls,
 changed peoples outlooks, gave hope with bright and shiny goals.
No matter how much dust the cover may hold,
 the words of God inside, are more value than all the worlds gold.
