Words of Wisdom with Delores Banks-Butler

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
