Thin Black Road

There’s a thin black road

I have traveled many times.

It leads to peace

In so many ways.

It’s kind of hard to describe

For the road’s oft unclear.

It unfolds to me

Like a lovely gift

One word at a time.

Then, music fills in the gaps,

Making worries fade away,

As unexplainable peace pours in.

There’s a thin black road

It leads me to peace.

When good or ill tidings come

To threaten my equilibrium,

I will travel that road

And return to peaceful calm.


This is the first inspirational Christian poetry collection. It’s followed by Just Like You and My Champion. The combination book, Made to Praise, contains all three collections.
