Each day I lay in pain;
And wonder when it will wane.
At times triggered by events in my past;
Brief happy moments, as well as that I know they will not last.
Triggered also by stories and images on the news;
Everytime I witness all, it gives me the blues.
War, Bigotry, Cruelty, Lies;
Cheating, selfishness, Destruction.
Instead of searching for “The Light” in people;
For the good…
We need to anticipate for the bad and, as well as the evil.
Where once purity stood;
For all living things, there is so much disregard;
When it is God who said that ALL was our responsibility to guard.
As I gather my beads to pray;
Tears run down my face with each prayer I say.
“God, at times I just don’t know what to do…
With all of this pain that I feel of others, a gift I know is from You.
You know that I would do anything to take that pain…
And make it my own, for in me to remain.
All I know is that within my heart;
Is to continue with my prayers…
A good start.
I no longer live of this world and its ways;
But for the promises of God, for Him all praise.
For the key in taking away all of my pain;
Is by staying with Him, for with Him I will remain.
It is He who is above all…
All things, great and small.
