Another sunny day


The lord has been so good to me
Why couldn't I see it before?
He was working in his own way
He was opening more doors

He knew my struggles
He felt my pain
But he let me go through it
So strength I would gain

More times than I can count
I knelt by my bed
I prayed so long and hard
At times I felt so dead

After awhile I stopped
Thinking it was no use
I felt he wasn't there for me
So my faith I decided to loose

Months went by
It just got worse
The devil had me bound
Bound into his curse

Angry and scornful
Sarcastic and mean
Fear and anxiety
Started to be seen

Irritation and hopelessness
Had me captured by the throat
The devil's hands were aroung my neck
I allowed myself to be choked

I wanted to be loved
To be safe and secure
But that wasn't the case
I thought I'd kill myself for sure

I stopped caring about myself
But ofcourse there was no time for me
I was Cinderella in a dungeon
Wanting to break free

Trapped and alone
I faced a living hell
I thought no one could get me out
That no one could pay my bail

If my angel would have flown away
What would I have done?
Would I have given up on life?
Would I have tried to find that gun?

Lost and alone
That what I felt
Anger and pity
That's how I delt

Hungry for compassion
For a smile to come my way
For someone to give me a hug
To ask me how was my day

God's plan for me was special
He allowed the angel to intervene
She flew away with me
And took me in her open wings

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Your hands lie open in the long fresh grass, --
The finger-points look through like rosy blooms:
Your eyes smile peace. The pasture gleams and glooms
