Navigating the Darkness

I examine others around me flourishing

Their lives blooming like a flower

I wander aimlessly through my own

Everything I touch wilts instantly

Each time I catastrophically halt my world

It becomes that much harder to bounce back

As I stand here today I have miles to make up

This nightmare is my reality unfortunately

All of which comes from my own hand

Blame can no longer be deflected to others

And I have to face the cold hard facts

I try to cling on to something positive in my life

But it's like I am swaying from a slippery ledge

As each day passes I lose a finger's grip

There was once a time when I held hope closely

But through the years optimism has moved beyond the horizon

I pray the Lord will fill me with vision and knowledge

While my life's flame flickers in the worlds gale force winds

The battle within me has spilled over into others lives

I pray if I search hard enough I can find a reason to change

And start a journey that I know to be terrifying

But ultimately ends on my own personal path of righteousness

Your Decision

Folder: 
My Love

I know how you feel
Like being ripped apart
Lying on the rack
Two different answers
Two different ways
Two different lives
And I won’t give you the right answer
Because I’m one of them
But, this is your life
Are you who you want to be?
Which way does God want for you?
Which answer do you really want?

This is your decision
But even if you don’t choose me
Know this:
I’ve got your back
I am with you
I won’t leave you
I’ll catch you when you fall
I’ll rejoice when you fly
And be there when you cry
Even though I may want to die
I’ll smile for you, hidden tears in my eye

Yet, should you choose me,
I’ll never love another
I won’t be concerned with me but each other
You’ll never have to run
You’ll never have to fear
I’ll love you till my dying day
Even when memory fades away
God and us, love never ending
You’ll always be cared for, loved from the heart
And you’ll never have to look for love somewhere else

Leave Me Forgotten,Think of Me No More.

Folder: 
My Love

Life, Love, Truth
Beautiful things giv’n me in my youth
But I wasted them all away.

 

Your love, your eyes, your kiss
All of the things that I miss
But I never made you stay.

 

Glances, chances, charm
Who knew they could bring such harm?
I left your spirit to soar.

 

Death, time, rotten,
Please leave me forgotten,
Think of me no more.
