Strength, Courage and Wisdom

A quad-tanka poem by Shazzar Kallie

God will make me strong
to overcome temptation
and trials in life
triumphant with endurance.
He restores my soul with strength.

Victory is won
before the race has begun
with Christ by my side.
Faith and love are fruits that feed
courage, curing fear's hunger.

Respect for the Lord
will endow divine wisdom
that comes from Heaven,
which is pure, peaceful, gentle,
understanding and truthful.

On the path of life
strength, courage and wisdom gives
guidance from God to defeat
weakness, fear and foolishness:
out of darkness into light.
