One Day

Should’ve known better

Totally messed up

How fast the heart sinks

Drowning out its love


Tears fall hard

The rain won’t stop

What was I thinking?

No, I didn’t think enough


The fire dims

There’s no way out

Must trust God

Must trust myself


Signed up for this

Can’t give up now

But what’s the wise move

When there’s so much doubt?


Wilted from exhaustion

Emotions are rough

Often working hard

Is just not enough


Need to take care

Need to pray

Comfort will only come

If I surrender today

    1. It’s ironic that you mention this. My cat died yesterday. He was my buddy for the last 12 years. I am so blessed to have community with my church and with my jobs.
