A poem for the Lighthouse poetry contest.
Psalm 23
The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing.

The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing.
To The Almighty I owe everything.

I never have to think to quench my thirst,
Happy: I feel that I am not accursed.

I know not what are hunger,poverty.
I treat Him with utmost care, loyalty.

Never did I desire for more money,
I feel wholly satisfied and bonny.

I feel for those who do not have shelter,
Aghast at their sorry state, I falter.

I feel blessed that I have a sweet home,
Feel pain for those who lie in streets and roam.

I think of His boons even in sorrow,
For He always brings a new tomorrow.

I think of Him when I feel sad,lonely,
His love is enough to make me happy.

For being His daughter, I take sheer pride.
The rough struggles of life, I put aside.

For what I have ,I owe Him gratitude.
To fight hardships- I plead for fortitude.
