Hard Yards


I've been doing hard yards
said the Pilgrim
My path seems lined with briars;
Obstacles arise
out of nowhere -
When will I see my way clear?
I've been doing hard yards
said the Pilgrim
How do I move on from here?
Exhausted, discouraged
& stricken
All is murky & dim & decayed.
My footsteps are leaden,
my heart sees no light..
Show me a sign
that hope lies ahead...
I feel so small
for the tasks now before me..
Hard yards, without rest, took their toll
Give me the strength
to move on in faith -
revive my weak spirit
with Yours so Divine.

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
