My Mistake

A bump in the road,
I happened to trip.
Seeming so subtle,
But it made me slip.

A difference so slight
I just didn't see -
Gigantic mistake
It happened to be.

To turn back the time!
To take the move back.
The bump did avoid,
The trip did retrack.

The tears that I shed,
Achieve not a thing.
All that I can do
Is plead to the King.

That He can make right
The wrong that I've done:
Problem against me
Somehow be won.

But trusting in Him
Is all I can do.
I cling to this hope, 
And pray that it's true.

That what has been done
Can be as it should;
That all this through God
Can work out for good.

  1. A nicely written poem, about something that isn't nice to have happen. It captures the theme well. :)

  2. Thankyou Jonathan. It was your idea. :)

  3. I'm glad you decided to act on Jonathan's idea, Bushy. :) *hugs tightly* I love the poem, it captures that feeling -- and the solution -- very well. :)

  4. Thankyou, my Grace. :) *hugs back*

  5. I've been reading your blog for awhile now. In fact, I'm not even entirely sure where I first found it! I really enjoy reading your poetry and this one is certainly one of my favorite! Thanks for posting! :)

    To the KING be all the glory!

  6. Hello Rebekah! Thankyou for leaving a comment, I am honoured to hear you enjoy reading my blog! I think have seen you comment on Gabriel's blog before, you may have found me there. :D

    Thankyou again for commenting, I love hearing from my readers! :D

  7. I truly might have seen you on Gabriel's! Either his or Aubrey's... I'm pretty sure I've seen your comments both places come to think of it. :)

    To the KING be all the glory!

  8. Yes, I frequent both, so you probably saw me there. :D
