By Frances C. M. Wright
The journey has been painful
Due to my stubbornness and greed
For I would not let go
Of the things I did not need
When God said "Turn right"
I often turned left
When God said, "Go forward and look ahead"
I often looked behind me instead
For the journey has been painful
But it did not need to be
If I had only listened to God
Instead of listening to me
The journey that thou takest shall not be for thine honor.
