Farewell Cruel World

Oh world of pain and strife

Jesus, take me Home from this tragic life

I long to be with the Lord

And free of this wicked world

No more suffering and misery

As Christians, this is our destiny

So I bid farewell to every family member and friend

I have reached the end

I’ll soon behold the Lamb of God

Bury me underneath the cold sod

No more mental illness and disease

Only Christ shall I please

  1. Hi sir Zach! I just want to let you know that your poem tells exactly what I’m feeling right now, In this season of my life I’m really struggling in terms of being motivated everyday, managing my time well, and……being consistently near to God. May I ask how do you keep yourself motivated to live your life everyday joyfully doing the things that God has put in front of you?


    • Hi Berna,
      I try every day to be grounded in Scripture, and connected to God through prayer and devotion. I highly recommend you get a good daily devotional to read. Motivation is hard, sometimes you have to dig deep and get the task done even if motivation doesn’t come. Blessings!
