A New Poem

Statue by Jerry Anderson


What will tomorrow bring:
unknown challenges, moments
of joy to cling to, memories
to forget, forgiveness to give,

inner peace threatened by outer
chaos, voices in my mind shouting
destruction and discouragement?
Will I take time to quietly pray,

choose to fill my thoughts
with gratitude for blessings received,
challenges met and overcome today
or restlessness for change, progress?
