Qualities Of An Independent Man-a poem

Like a Redwood,STRONG, FIRM, AND DETERMINED NEVER TO FALL DOWN.
Like a Redwood,STRONG, FIRM, AND DETERMINED NEVER TO FALL DOWN.

Psalm 1, verses 1-2 reads:

"Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel on the ungodly, nor stand in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night."

Such an independent man

With an independent plan

He can take care of himself

With the help of

No one else.

He never explains his ways.

Yet with reverence to

God He prays.

Only to realize

No one is perfect,

Not even him.

Such an independent man

He struggles for his place

In the human race.

He has found out on his own

That he is not alone.

Destined to be different

From all the others

In a family of many

Sisters and brothers

Soon this Independent man

Will need to see that

The Lord's Peace

Will set him Free.
