We all walk…--By Jim Teeters--United States

We all walk…

this tired earth
hopeful or afraid
carry burdens
      speak love
follow or lead
sometimes alone or
         toward an uncertain

  1. Hi Jim. Thank you for sharing "We All Walk." Nice write. Continued blessings!

    -MJ (

  2. Hello, Jim! So nice to read your work again! If one believes life shouldn't be that uncertain if one puts their faith in the Master! Granted, inevitably we are bound to be uncertain, but certainly not fearful. Your poem makes the reader think about finite vs. the infinite, that's for sure....... !! Sheri /

  4. A truism Jim an simply said - lovely

  5. Jim, I really enjoyed your words of truth. Although our future is uncertain, there is one thing I hold on to and that is my faith in God that He will be with me in any eventuality. Thank you for sharing your talent and this well written poem.
