Stepping Forward

Stepping Forward

A Poem by Wonderful Letdown
"

Letting go of old ways and who I used to be. The "end" of that life/person/chapter.

"
I close my eyes,
It's time to say good-bye.
Here is where I choose to die
so that I may finally live.

Scared to move on forward,
being called to leave it all behind.
Having to break free
and forget everything I used to be.

The person I was,
is being erased
by the person I am becoming...
I don't recognize who I am.

The person I was,
has no place in my future.
I'm giving it all to you
to do with as you will.

What else am I to do?
What else am I to say?
I have no regrets
of the choices I've made.

Uncertain of the future that lies ahead,
as I leave my old ways behind.
I don't regret deciding to follow you,
I just desperately need your help.

You alone are my strength,
the One in whom I trust.
I know you will lead me true,
please help me to listen to you.

You asked me to die,
and slowly I am.
I'm closing the chapter
of all my yesterdays.

I'm closing the book,
saying my farewells.
This part is over,
all that's left is to go on forward.

Such a perfect description of what it takes to follow Christ.

You are welcome...:)...............
I have to agree with ProCoacoa on the fonts. It is distracting, but the poem itself, I didn't let myself get lost in the fonts. I found myself enjoying the poem in spite of the distraction. A well written poem.

Thank-you so much for taking the time to read it!!! I'll edit it soon. >.< Promise
This is amazing! The poem has a great flow to it and I love your style.

The only negative thing I will say is that the different fonts and colours are a bit disturbing to your message as they break the flow of the reader. Sometimes simplicity is best :)

Other than that great poem, my friend :)
