Life’s Path

Life’s Path
by Perry Boardman

Many go down life’s path with lofty plans 
To amass a great fortune of houses and lands 

And to live a life of pleasure and ease, 
Thinking happiness can be found in these.

Others pursue power and worldwide fame 
To be known by all and win their acclaim. 

But those without God who attain these goals 
Soon find emptiness remains in their souls.

They could not find true happiness 
For life’s void cannot be filled with this. 

If only they realized this will not last 
Since life is fleeting and will soon be past.

Wealth, worldly pleasure, fame, and power 
Will all be gone at death’s dark hour. 

And beyond the grave when eternity begins 
Those unsaved will be judged for their sins!

If only they would believe in God’s Son 
And repent of the sinful deeds they’ve done, 

Then they could go down life’s path 
Not needing to worry about God’s wrath.

They would have the joy they longed for, 
Inner peace, contentment, and much more 

For when their lives on earth shall end 
Heavenly bliss would at once begin!
