Can You Reach

Location

You can walk, you can run, you can climb, and you can fly high in the sky.
But do you reach the Lord?
You can buy many jewels, you can buy many riches, and you can buy any possession.
But can you buy the Lord?
OH! NO! NO! NO!

I have learned through ages,
what it means to have faith,
I have learned through the ages,
when times get through, so through,
he's there holding our hand.
I have learned through the ages,
the kingdom of Heaven just can't be bought.
OH! NO! NO! NO!

You can walk, you can run, you can climb, and you can fly high in the sky.
But do you reach the Lord?
You can buy many jewels, you can buy many riches, and you can buy any possession.
But can you buy the Lord?
OH! NO! NO!NO!

I have learned through the ages,
sunshine and good times aren't promised for each day,
I have learned through the ages,
tears and saddness can happen some days.
I have learned the ages,
the Lord works in mysterious ways.
OH! YES! YES! YES!

To you my brothers and sisters who do not share my faith,
I know my Lord has a plan for you,
So I will pray.

I have had a lot of experiences in the past few years that have really tested my faith. However I have overcome the hard times with the help of my lord. People may say to me or other how can you lord let you go through all this pain. Well my answer to them is he's not. He gives people the option to make our own decisions and is there to comfort us when those decisions cause us pain. This poem is just a small piece of how I feel when it comes to my faith.
