From Someone I Didnt Know

Poetry By: angellynn

Sometimes we find ourselves traveling an endless road.
Trying to find ourselves,or simply trying to find happiness.
then one day it happens,someone you never knew,comes into your life.and suddenly your whole out look on life changes.
you become a better you.

From Someone I Didnt Know

The road that Im traveling down

Isnt what Im searching for

and every day the same old thing

just like the day before

Everything that Ive done wrong

keeps running through my head

then I met a man along my way

and this is what he said

Child sit right here beside me

and rest your weary soul

I can see that you are troubled

let me lift your heavy load

He opened up his Bible

and read to me from Psalms

I noticed as he read to me

he had scares upon his palms

then he handed me the bible

and said this is all you need

And as he stood to walk away

I saw the same scars on his feet

I walk the straight and narrow now

with a home and family

and I still have the bible

the old man gave to me

Its pages worn and ragged

but ill never let it go

for it still gives me comfort

from someone I didnt know
