O’ how man grasps for a Higher Power
Looking for answers to someone unseen
Praying for knowledge before the final hour
Asking recognition for all that we’ve been
Nay–seldom does the Divine ever respond
Rather resting squarely on the faith of man
Free-will determining what we will become
No one there to take us by the hand
Responsible are we for making our way
Following the path that we choose
Easy it is, surely no one will say
This life is ours to live or to lose
~~ Dominic R. DiFrancesco ~~
Love the words and the nice rhythm. Well said!
Thank you very much Victor.
You manage to compress so much into such a spare verse… and yet it doesn’t feel abbreviated… You have such a gift!!
That is very kind of you to say Lois. I appreciate that from the bottom of my heart. Thank you. 🙂
Thank you Heather, I’m glad you like it. 🙂
This was beautifully written, though I find I disagree with some of it.
I can understand that, but I’m glad that you liked it anyway. We can’t always agree on everything. 🙂
Nope, which is good as it allows us to diversify.
Very wonderful poem!!
Thank you Carol, a little controversial perhaps, but that happens sometimes. 🙂
