THE LIVING WORD
I mark but a few pages in the annals of humankind
And record but a few of the footsteps
That have marched
Through the corridors of time;
Yet even more,
So much more!
I am a lifeline for all to climb
Out of their dark dungeons of despair
Into the sunlight of hope.
Though my pages are limited as literature goes,
They remain all too imposing for those
Who mock my wisdom,
Who fear my warnings,
And reject my testament of love.
I am the grant deed of the future,
The guarantor of eternity
For those who dare
To shed their fear
And explore my depths.
I am the pathway of challenge
Through the desert of life
For those who love to live
And live to love
And dare to know the difference.
