Believe

Believe in the miracles inside you,

Have faith in the God who shapes your dreams,

Walk tall, to yourself be true.

 

Abide obstacles strewn along your way,

The nagging naysayers of folly,

In confidence walk each day.

 

Should not your wishes find

Fulfillment at the journey’s end,

Look skyward with peace of mind.

 

You have given in honest measure

That most noble part of your tender soul

And, in reward, heaven’s treasure.

 

So, believe in wonders yet to be,

Passing through life’s many gates

On your way to eternity.

  1. This is beautiful, Billy Ray. It’s humility and hope remind me of some of Maya Angelou’s poems. This is a great compliment because she’s one of my favorite writers. ♥

  2. I especially liked the stanzas below–for we never meet our greatest expectations, but it’s always good to know that one finishes the journey with no gas left in the tank:

    “Should not your wishes find

    Fulfillment at the journey’s end,

    Look skyward with peace of mind.

    You have given in honest measure

    That most noble part of your tender soul

    And, in reward, heaven’s treasure.”
