It’s a New Day

It’s a new day

Life begins fresh

The sun rises again

It’s a new day

Time is lost while roaming through the trees

Slipping away into darkness

It’s a new day

Freedom is caged in fog

Searching for a ray of His light

It’s a new day

Health cannot overcome this illness

Distortion disrupts and chaos thrives

It’s a new day

Truth is disguised behind fear

Sleep will not come tonight

It’s a new day

Time searches to find healing

A new path is now clear

It’s a new day

Freedom soars through the air

As Light shines the way

It’s a new day

Health regains consciousness

Allowing fear to be put in its place

It’s a new day

Truth becomes curious

Breaking the concrete foundation

It’s a new day

Life begins fresh

The sun rises again

???

Cool?

No.

Hero?

No.

Famous?

No.

Fantastic?

Maybe…

Good?

Not enough.

Awesome?

Definitely, but still not enough.

Love?

Yes, forever. But there’s more…

Father?

Yes, but more…

Son?

Yes, but still more…

Savior?

No doubt! But there is still more…

How much more?

Incomprehensibly more…

I don’t understand.

Have faith.

What He holds in His hands, we cannot totally understand.

Embrace fear.

Courage can not exist without fear.

Bring Him home.

Stop looking above.

He is here.

We are all loved!

 

Music Lost

Music floats through my veins

Carrying me along the rough terrain

Life seems to never stop

Music tends to hold me up

 

The notes are different every day

I wish I remembered how to play

But my piano days are long gone

Dragged away to remain unsung

 

How does one practice music every day

And then find themselves lost and astray

Is it the medication or the deliberate shocks

Or is it just time that has locked me up

 

I miss the days I danced on the keys

My emotions emerged unknowingly

Light and soft when my mood was strong

Loud and disruptive to prove I belonged

 

Maybe one day it will all come back

Or am I meant to be forever off track

I am grateful that at least I can hear

The music ringing in my ears

 

I will continue to listen openly

Without regrets or negativity

Enjoying music all day long

Never to forget from where the inspiration comes

Tick-Tock

Tick-tock

Time to wake up

Start a new day

With hope and praise

 

Tick-tock

Something’s not right

Sheets encompass the body

Can’t fight the night

 

Tick-tock

Shadows align

The sun may shine

But darkness survives

 

Tick-tock

Won’t face the day

Scared of the new

Let’s hide away

 

Tick-tock

Can’t hear the clock

The mind’s gone away

Out of reach today

 

Tick-tock

How to stop

The endless run

Of dreams undone

 

Tick-tock

Fight to live

But out of focus

Time to give in

 

Tick-tock

There’s more to a clock

Inching by

The waves are high

 

Tick-tock

The brain has blocked

All memories and sights

Drowning out the light

 

Tick-tock

God approaches

Giving light

That can’t go unnoticed

 

Tick-tock

Light penetrates

Allowing the bad and ugly

To disintegrate

 

Tick-tock

Opening eyes

Looking around

Full of surprise

 

Tick-tock

Begin anew

Walking with the Lord

He’ll help carry too

 

Tick-tock

Starting over

In God’s time

Begin to recover

 

Tick-tock

Goes the clock

Where to begin

At the beginning my friend

 

Tick-tock

There is no clock

A human invention

For organized attention

 

Tick-tock

A new time in life

Let’s take it on

Let’s grow and thrive

Remember Who I Am

Emotions

Like waves

Collide

 

Stirring

The dangerous

Side

 

Lost

Blind and

Afraid

 

Cutting

Deep with

Blades

 

Pain

Increases through

Time

 

Is

There no

End

 

How

Do I

Survive

Remember…

 

Remember

Who I

Am

Stitch by Stitch

Running ragged

my mind begins to tear

lost and confused

frustration everywhere

 

My mind unravels

piece by piece

the remains of my heart

bleed out to sea

 

Fearfully

I hide my soul

for the teachings of Christ

seem so long ago

 

Who do I turn to

Who do I trust

Where is the peace promised

Where is God’s love

 

Blindly I walk into a sermon

sitting

listening

too much is uncertain

 

Anxiety wins

I walk out the door

weeping and longing

for something more

 

But at the corner

where the streets divide

I stop and wonder

about what’s inside

 

I feel a presence

I am overwhelmed

the Holy Spirit moves

with no doubt or sound

 

Walking back

I reenter the church

I immediately find

God is at work

 

I have found a safe home

and stitch by stitch

I slowly mend

while creating friendships

 

Putting the pieces

back together

will take a long time

but I am a survivor

 

I have another family

not made from blood

leading and teaching me

how much I am loved

 

I am learning to accept

that God’s already accepted me

that I am whole

that I am free

 

 

 

Reach Out

All alone
I sit in the dark
Waiting…
Waiting…
No one comes

All alone
I long for change
Waiting…
Waiting…
No one comes

All alone
I struggle with time
Waiting…
Waiting…
No one comes

All alone
I find a light
Reaching…
Reaching…
I call out

All alone
I begin to walk
Reaching…
Reaching…
I call out

All alone
I find a friend
Reaching…
Reaching…
I call out

No longer alone
I breathe a sigh
Growing…
Growing…
I reach out

No longer alone
I begin to speak
Growing…
Growing…
I reach out

No longer alone
I pray to God
Growing…
Growing…
I reach out

Waiting…
Reaching…
Growing…
Now it’s time to start living
Everyday is a new beginning
