the palm of your hand.

Choosing His path.

I must choose a new path now,
I need new direction.
I have trudged too long, too far,
Fruitless, all my action.

Spurred on by my youth, I did
Want to scale the mountains.
I tried to get what I wished,
Not sparing any pains.

Did that give me happiness?
Did that bring contentment?
No, but to others my gains
Caused too much resentment.

My old path was for myself,
To satisfy my whim.
Now on I will choose the path
That’s dictated by Him.
