Life's Journey

by Sr. Mary James

From the womb
to the tomb
Life’s is a journey
Everyone has to thread.
For some it is short
But nonetheless blessed
As they answer the call of God.
For many the mystery
Is quite unclear
As the months and years
Pass by.
Darkness invades
Pain and anguish ensue
The turmoil is all to great.
But deep at the centre
is the calm of the spirit
For those whoa re brave
to search.
O would to my God
The gift to give me
You liberate the spirit within
That free from life’s cares
And aware of his grace
I may step into line
With Him.
