Carrying Our Crosses

Walk the Walk
Some call this world a burden

Some call this world a curse

But I call it a blessed place

For trust me... there's far worse

I'll walk this earth any day

No matter what the cost

I'll pray each and every day

That not one soul be lost

I'll walk the path of Jesus

With help, I'll walk it well

For His way leads to heaven

The wide road leads to hell

So if you see me walking

With grace, I will not tarry

For Jesus is my light and guard

My cross He helps me carry

And if I see you on this path

Which every day grows steeper

I'll help you if you fall, my friend

....I am my brother's keeper


  1. I think my comment disappeared-so here it is again! I love this Mary and thank you for helping me to carry my cross! With you as a brother's keeper my burdens become bearable! God bless you my friend!

  2. Hey Mary this is a great poem. Well done.

    I'm not very good at poetry myself. I've only ever put one of my poems on my Blog. You can find it right at the top if you click on "Nonsense".

    God bless you and your family.

  3. Love your poem, Mary. Thank you.
    Victor is too funny.

  4. This is beautiful, Mary! Thank you for sharing it:)

  5. Mary, this is a beautiful poem. Writing isn't my gift, but it is obviously yours! God bless you and thank you for sharing.

  6. Thank you all for your kind comments!

    Victor, I write nonsense poetry too :) Once I was bored and wrote my own epitaph! If I could find it on my blog I'd link it but I have no clue where it is!

    And I thank you too. Your kind words have lifted me up many times. God bless you!

  7. Love this poem and will take the words to heart.

  8. Beautiful poem, Mary! And so good to know you are there if we fall beneath our cross..may we all be there for one another!


  9. Patricia,
    Yes, if we all help each other the walk is a lot easier :)


  11. Ha!Ha! Well done, my friend! I forgot about the starch comment!
    Anne's comment about her own funeral cracked me up too :)

    I can't believe you can find my posts more easily than I can.
