Grace

Walking on the beach and letting the sunlight touch my skin,

I allowed sand and water to be my kin,

While listening to the waves and watching the birds sing,

Tears rolled down as it made my heart swing.

Thinking only about all the disappointments and downs in my life,

I wasn’t being grateful to the God who gave me the life.

Then I saw a young girl selling roasted peanuts,

With dirty hands, torn clothes but she was no nuts,

Even after a dreadful long day she had her hopes high,

With love in her eyes, she walked gracefully without giving a sigh.

When she offered me her peanuts seeing me cry,

I could only stare at her and couldn’t ask why,

The beach was a place where I could find my final peace,

Instead I found God in her face and I walked back in grace in one piece.

Please leave your comments on the post as I would really love to read them.

  1. There is so much that we take for granted. We yearn for more, disregarding the things we already have.

  2. Amazing. The girl has a ray of hope despite our problem but we do seek for problems without actually having it. I loved reading it. If you have time please visit my blogs alsoπŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒ
