A poem Life is a Mystery

Updated on May 17, 2012

Life is a mystery and that’s

why I should not pry or else

life can really make me cry.

I must just take one step at a

time and let life run its path.




What tomorrow holds I cannot

tell you, what my life shall unfold

only the Father above can tell you.

for He holds life and death in His

hands and He alone is the Master

of the raging seas.




If my life doesn’t seem to be running

as it should be I’d just have to look up

to Him for strength to go from day

to day. Some days maybe full of dismay

and others happy as can be.




Life is a mystery today I am here with

you and tomorrow I may never see you.

Life is a mystery full of gladness and sorrows

Something’s really seem to disturb me. Life is a mystery

why should I ever bother or wonder why all these

things ever happened to me? I must just leave

everything and let things be.




For God alone can understand the mysteries

that are set before me.

      It is true to be happy to just have life. Birth and death will always remain a mystery, and many times life will, too. Beautiful poem!
