Keep from falling

Looking beyond the break of this day,

The whispers of tomorrow calling,

Asking my Lord for a better way,

The strength to keep from falling.


The journey long, tedious of time,

Learned patience along the way,

The days pains that do remind,

Getting older, turning gray.


Prison? Just some place to be,

When in society, unable to comply,

Standards set letting a man be free,

Told what to do, I'd ask, "but why?"


Years called 'time' passing by,

Still, many more to be done,

Within each moment is my try,

Change another's life, if just one.


Looking beyond the break of the day,

The haunting of yesterday calling,

Asking my Lord, I pray...

A strength to keep from falling.


Thank you, Jeffery A. SHOCKLEY-ES4796 (SCI-FAYETTE)
