Wings, I had wings
To soar high without any attached strings.
Dreams, I had dreams
To be the cream in the midst of creams.
Goals, I had goals
To touch many parched souls.
Ways, I knew the ways
To move on ahead along the coasts and the bays.
Steered, through every winding road I steered
No hill, valley or desert I ever feared.
Pinnacle, yes my aim was the pinnacle
To reach there, I needed a miracle.
Efforts, I put in hard and smart efforts
And I was offered all available supports.
Changes, alas there arose changes
In the contours of life’s ranges.
Questions, many questions
Gripped at all times the head and heart.
Faith, in God strong faith
Was the anchor while the river was in full spate.
Alone, never did I feel alone
Remembering always that God is still on the throne.
Own, never would He forsake His own
In hopelessness I would never bemoan.
Shine, for His grace shall on me shine
And not let me sorrowfully whine.
Hope, indeed I have a blessed hope
That I would in darkness never grope.
Victory, awaits me sweet victory
To bring an end to this journey’s story.
