WHERE IS THE OLD ME?

WHERE IS THE OLD ME?
By Yaksport Josiah

Where is the old me?
I know who I use to be
I want to go home
I'm tired of the world;

When I wandered away'
All happiness went away;
No more hanging in the middle-way
I'm tired !oh my God ! Of standing here!

I want the old me back
Where goodness is my only stand;
But, alas! I'm now tattered,
I'm so battered
And everything about me is scattered;

When I turned to the  north i see sorrow,
And to the south there's sadness also,
I manage to make it to the west but  there's trouble;
Had I not left East, I would have been crippled.

 

I was so foolish!
What even made me to leave?
And now my life has no ease
Because I don't have Jesus.

Under the orange ray of dusk,

The sun is a mediator of two hands
Joined as one in love.

I just wish love can see me through the moonlight, set up a light for me in the darkness and guide me till am lost no more..
