Life, a puzzle assembled one piece at a time

Updated on August 18, 2014

Oh what a puzzle
Is what we call life
Each day we add a piece
Hopin' to place it right
Sometimes it works out
Other times it don't
So we choose another piece
And try to move on
Sometimes we get impatient
Don't want to wait
So we try to force
The piece into place
Each time it doesn't fit
We get annoyed
Deep in our heart we think
We've made the right choice


God sees the puzzle
That we call life
He sees it complete
Each piece placed right
We don't have to struggle
Placing the pieces on our own
We can ask God to help us
See where each piece goes
He has the patience
To help us wait
So we won't try to put
A piece in the wrong place
Cause with God's guidance
We won't get annoyed
Deep in heart we must thank
God for making the right choices

      This is a great poem and it's very well written. I've been dealing with a few different things and the message in this poem came to me right on time.
