I am in awe of The Almighty, but I don't feel afraid.
I know that there are others helping me handle
The path to Eternity that has been laid.
I'm only one runner in the relay race of life.
I can hand the baton over to another
When I've handled my share of strife.
There were many runners who came before me,
They ran a straighter and truer path,
And were faster than I could ever be.
It was my job to take the baton given
And run to the best of my ability
Whether or not I make it to Heaven.
But, I take comfort in firmly believing
We are all part of the same creation;
Some seeds of salvation are what I'm leaving.
