An original poem by Delores Butler:
Welcome to another week, and another edition of Words of Wisdom with Delores Banks-Butler. Delores’ original poetry is inspired by her love of her family and community in Louisville’s West End, as well as her strong Christian faith.
Title: Here I am a Traveling
Written by: Delores Banks-Butler
Here I am a Traveling
Down a long and tedious road
Not knowing where I’m going
But I am not alone
For there is someone by my side
Who will always be my guide
Shush– I hear someone quietly walking
Shush–A still small voice talking
Oh could it be
Don’t you see
It is the Greatest Love of All
Who has heard my beckon call
I feel a powerful force drawing me
Bringing me closer to my destiny
In view is reality
It is He– the Powerful God
Reaching out to rescue me
Yes it is He
