No Do-Over

Deny me a do-over Lord. Let my life run the course you laid, the challenges you placed on board. Test my faith with trespasses paid. Please do not lend a helping hand. Deny me a do-over Lord. Test my resolve as you command. Let me falter, my own accord. Give me the strength to earn my sword. Let me learn the gift of sadness. Deny me a do-over Lord. I open my eyes in gladness. When Judgement Day comes, let me stand on my own merits, not borrowed, politically correct plan. Deny me a do-over Lord.

This poem moves me deeply. Such an unusual request, to not desire a do-over! So rarely the path taken. Much food for thought here, Linda... This is a FAVE for me. Thank you so much. ~ Gershon
