Once Upon A Time


Once upon a time
I thought I had it all
Money, clothes, and jewelry
Life rolling like a ball.

Didn't have to worry
Never had to fret
Doing anything I could
And never had regrets.

I traveled to the East coast
Sometimes to the West
Northern states were beautiful
The South I liked the best.

In my adventurous travels
Many people I did meet
Some were really different
Most were kinda sweet.

Then one day it happen
I found no place to go
Feeling sad and lonely
Alone, with spirits low.

Not knowing what to do
I took a long look back
My life had been exciting
But something did it lack.

Now in my room alone
With nothing else to do
I opened up a drawer
A book? I had no clue.

I slowly turned the pages
Read them one by one
So wrapped up in this story
Oh, it was so much fun.

Reading of a man
That died for you and me
How could he do this?
Why did he pay this fee?

Life has changed since then
Although I'm on the go
I'm doing things for Jesus
It's him that run's my show.
