    Sometimes I feel like a motherless child
    Sitting out in the mist of the desert wild
    Forsaken like someone's leftover trash
    Beaten down beneath the lowest ashes
    Wondering why this is all happening to me
    How could the omnipotent master let this be
    But everytime I say why me I have to say why not
    If no rain ever came how'd I apprieciate what I've got
    My desire is to be pure gold so I endure the fiery heat
    knowing that victory shall be mine if i ovecome this feat
    All things serve some purpose and are only for a mere season
    So this too shall pass and someday I'll see the underlying reason
    It will all be crystal clear why my suffering was part of the plan
    So until the new dawn comes breaking through I shall withstand
    For no matter how it appears right now I know God is still in control
    So now all I'm able to say is why not me for i know whose hand I hold

    Why NOT me? So profound! When we're going through if we just ask ourselves that question...that attitude helps us get to the other side of the storm so much faster! Excellent write!

    Wow. When we're actually going through it, it's awfully hard to see any hope all, but what you pen, is hope beyond all hope for you know that God has you. The message, and the way this was posed...outstanding!

    yes keep the strength

    keep the spirit

    and have faith in the power

    which allows life

    you have to go thru the heartache

    to feel the joy sometimes

    peace poet

    I know who I can not be
    Why not find out who I can
    All of that was preparation
    Every warrior has their Great Fight
    Now I know
    Why It Had to be
    Me
    I know Why he saved me
    SO I ASKED
    If I am going to give my life
    Why NOT to thee

    You bring the Blessings out of me:)

    Beautiful Poem Poet

    Simply Beautiful

    Blessings and Peace to you
