A Life Of A Friend

Updated on April 26, 2012

Born on a night of 10th of October

With my family anticipating in wander

Will I be a brother or a new sister?

To my already sleeping 2-yr old brother ...

We don't possess wealth or fame

And my family wasnt always really sane

For there's always struggles that caused me pain

And my growing up, I had been very lame.

I was a child with parents, yet alone

To learn what life is, I did it on my own

Maybe because I'd been fooled by this world

That no one will care if I shiver on a night so cold.

My family told me I should treat education

With interest and seriousness for my own

Which means my future will depend on how I will fare

Bright or dull..shall I do it? shall I dare?

I'd been lost for sometimes in computer's world of games

Living like a god, with powers, wealth and fame

I disregard the guilt and conscience in my mind and heart

I thought I was happy, but no! I was hurt ...

For it destroyed my future, it made me cry

I seek God's hands in darkness, I needed a Light

Thank Lord am now safe after I repented

Now am with my family, am loved and protected.

      Mistakes make us mature. I'm glad you found yourself back where you are supposed to be. Nothing happens without the knowledge of the Lord. Everything happens for the best. He make us go through things so that we may learn to value what we already have :) Thank you for sharing your experience with all the hubbers :) God bless You!

      @always exploring/BlossomSB/Storytellerus/Thelma Alberts - Yup. We should not be afraid to commit mistake. I have meet a lot of people who wont even try because they are afraid of committing a mistake. Just have faith and work hard and learn from one's mistake.

      cebu, I find it interesting that you chose a fairly lighthearted poetic style to express this deep, deep transition in your life. Is this how you respond to challenges in life- with a positive attitude?

      Lovely poetry and an interesting story. If we were perfect we wouldn't be here in this world, so praise God that He sent Jesus so that we could be forgiven.

      mistake is a part of life that everyone must face. it is through mistakes that we grow wiser, stronger and better if and only if we dont commit same mistakes.. and in all means, we should acknowledge that there is no impossible with God. thanks cebutouristspot for posting this poem.
