Tell me when.


The night was calm but there were people everywhere.
I couldn't escape them
but part of me didn't want to.
I ran but they always followed.
Everywhere i looked they were there.
I feel hopeless and lost.
With unanswered questions ringing in my head;
why am i here?
What do I do now?
Screaming HELP!
No one ever coming to help in my time of pain.
Things will work out i know that is true,
but how do i wait til that day comes?
Spinning faster and faster i feel as though I'm falling.
Words are around me now
but are not making any sense.
Trying to find myself but at the same time
trying to please everyone else.
Hard to choose who to believe
but wanting to know the truth.
When will i learn who i am?
When will i know the truth?

    Ashley: This is a beautiful poem and I have gone a lot of my life not knowing who I was or where I was going. Once I received Jesus as my Savior, everything changed, now I know. Thanks for reminding me of who I am. Your friend Lynn. (Report) Reply

(For the Rev. James J. Daly, S. J.)

Bright stars, yellow stars, flashing through the air,
Are you errant strands of Lady Mary's hair?
