A guest poet!

The following poem is written by my friend Mackenzie.  She is a good friend who likes to write poetry (obviously!), prepare for  her upcoming LDS mission, and rock out in the car with me to Kelly Clarkson.  This poem is a beautiful expression of her trials, but also her faith.  I publish this with her permission.

Much Longer

I can’t do it any other way unless the Lord is on my side

In this small peep-hole my life seems like a long ride

I need to trust my faith when all else is failing me

Trying to envision just who God wants me to be

If in failing I lose all sense of self, I know God will be my spiritual wealth

I’m so many broken pieces learning to find my way

But with the Lord on my side, I can never go astray

I need to get my license, that broken piece chips my eye

So many unneedful crystal clear tears that I cry

I want to serve the Lord, that broken piece chips my aching heart

With my faith in all sorts of parts

How much longer will my confidence sink?

This life goes by in such a blink

I need to build up a light around me so that darkness cannot succeed

Christ’s light is what I thirst, it’s what I need

Wow!  Nothing I could say would do this poem justice, so I’ll just let it speak for itself.  Love you, Kenz!
