From the Heart
Somewhere there is a place for me
A place I have a need to be.
A new plateau, a goal to meet-
Purpose, direction, without defeat.
Oh, God, give me strength to greet each day
With a cheerful countenance, don’t let me sway.
Please let me focus on the issues of life
That bring joy to others-
to relieve their strife.
To have victory over the enemy called Fear-
the energy and stamina to persevere.
