I Am Still Here

years of pressure
build up inside
no light to see
no hope or drive
 
escaping deep
inside my head
excluding the world
to feel safe instead
 
I tried to run
but never could hide
so I injured my body
to soothe my mind
 
I didn’t understand
what was happening to me
I still don’t know
I’ll just let that be
 
looking at my battle scars and
remembering how life was
today a thought occurred to me
as I listened to my Pastor’s words

Jesus came to live with us
He knows how humans work
He showed us His unconditional Love
by being among us in the dirt
 
often when asked
“how are you doing today”
my popular response was
“I am here”
 
today I heard
and understood that
Yes!
I am still here!
 
‘still’ is just
one
additional word
but it creates a whole new meaning
 
‘still’
provides room for
Faith and Hope
and remembrance of His being
 
He walks with us
He walks in us
Yes
I am still here
