Shelley L Baxter Poems
Utterly consumed with pain,
Far from a solution,
Fast to run but not crying the blues.
Even little things annoy you.
Rest assured the tide will change!
Inner pain is what tranforms you...
Never forget that fact my friend-
Get focused now, get on the mend.
Written January 22 2008
Surrendering To Him.
I feel so helpless. Washed up on the rocks.
My arms and legs tied behind me...
In a distance there you are, sinking out of my sight.
I flop and wiggle trying to release myself from the fishers net
which purposely captured me.
The devil himself claws at my flesh,
as the evil one's twine tightens up
around my wrists, ankles and throat.
Like a fish on dry land~dry sand.
