The Seekers; Strength to Change; Distance

Strength to Change

“Sicknesses of despair”:
addiction, suicide,
I nearly perished there.
It was a rocky ride.
Lord, let me fill my time
with relished memories
in meter and in rhyme
of boyhood in the trees,
of manhood on the Plains
and nearby Beartooth Range
which seeds our needed rains.
Grant me the strength to change.
