This is a slight deviation from the 100 words posts but I felt I had to post this today. It’s for all those who feel they have lost all their strengths and cannot go the extra mile, this post is a reminder that you really can go the extra mile and thanks to my friend John Damian for the article. Now dive in.
The tears wield up in my eyes, my heart filled with words,
Words left spoken, uttered when a life is to be saved,
Then we gear up for an extra mile, when the tears fire us up,
We have no option but to go the extra mile,
Going the extra mile, it is never crowded.
Even when alone in the crowd, standing amidst my pain,
When I know not my fate, the tears threatens to swallow me and,
I crave for my nature’s embrace; still I go the extra mile,
When I see my tears, feel my fears,
Beautiful hopes will stand sturdy against my burden; assuring me of an extra mile.
Even if the skies descend, all my pains I will bear.
Where lies my hope? In the knowing of an extra mile,
My strength is gone, when I see my feebleness, it is a sign of strength,
It leaves me with a ray of hope for tomorrow, because I will still hold on,
The extra mile I must go, when the sun refuses to neither shine nor a drop of rain to give me a taste of success,
I will not hide my tears; I will still push on and go the extra mile,
When my faith and hope seems to decline and I don’t have the zeal to carry on,
With wobbling feet and a lightened heart, all I will do is go the extra mile,
And I will go the extra mile by holding His Hands.
YOU can only go the extra mile when you are safe in God’s hands.
