VARIOUS POEMS Ė By Sharon Netzer
Many roads in my lifetime Iíve taken.
Many paths my feet have trod upon.
Many places Iíve been and knew in my heart,
That these are only stepping-stones.
Stepping stones for one life of Godís creation,
How could I ever fully know the source.
As I step from one stone to the other.
In my heart I know that I have a choice.
Many choices, every day on my journey.
Like a tree with many branches I can soar.
And no matter which door I choose to enter.
The truth will let me vision even more.
How could I ever ask for more from you Lord?
After all the things youíve helped me do.
You were waiting for me at the end of every road.
And I thank you for the strength to help me through.
I know youíve crossed every valley.
Shining the light so I could see.
And the brightness of the truth I saw before me.
Knowing that this light would set me free.
Set me free from all doubt
Not letting go of the hope I have within.
Such a freedom from the stress, which surrounds me.
Learning from the stepping-stones where I have been.
Question of Pain
As I look out over the calmness of the sea
I think of chaos and hear my brotherís plea
I feel the peace within my heart and how it was obtained
How my brothers and sisters
have broken hearts and suffer so much pain
Each man born without a flaw,
he came into this earth, does it matter where or when
or which mother gave him birth?
I think not my friend of flesh, it is the choices that brings us higher
Maybe its karma or just circumstance
It is exactly what we truly desire
Then why oh why do the innocent hurt
When no thing or being have they harmed
This question so prevalent in my mind
stands out with much alarm...
I know I may never know how this has come about
But the God of truth lets me know that he does know
Relieves my mind and diminishes doubt.
Some mysteries we will never know
much less to solve itís source
The only thing we all must do
is live and love by an Infinite force...
Each day we are given freely a brand new dawn
Another chance, another choice, all things are left behind
It is the greatest gift, besides our breath of life
The experience of knowing freedom
Greater than any earthly treasure we could ever find...
So rest my friend, enjoy your joys
Not fretting with darker plights
Accept the substance for which your made
Live each new day
WITH ALL YOUR MIGHT.....
