My Mission

My Mission

A mission's a strange experience,
it's a trial and a test.
It throws at you the worst,
yet teaches you the best.

I heard somewhere that this would be
the best time of my life.
But somehow no one told me
of the hardship and the strife.

I've never been so happy.
I've never been so depressed.
I've never felt so forsaken.
I've never felt so blessed.

I've never been so confused.
Things have never been so clear.
Heavenly Father seems so distant.
I've never felt Him so near.

I've never felt so discourage.
I've never had so much hope.
I think I can go on forever.
I think I've come to the end of my rope.

I've never had it so easy.
Life has never been this tough.
Things have never gone so smoothly.
Things have never been so rough.

I've never traveled through more valleys.
I've never ascended so many peaks.
I've never met so many neat people.
I've never met so many geeks.

I've never been so lonely.
I've never had so many friends.
Oh, I hope this is all over soon.
Man, I hope it never ends!


  1. Tracey, this is an absolutely beautiful poem, I am totally stealing this, and giving it to Hope before she leaves on her mission in 22 short days.

  2. I'm not sure if it's beautiful, ha ha...But, it definitely
    fits my missionary. Go ahead and steal it! Happy to share it.
