Determined

May 22, 2009

.
I determined I would find
A different way to live
Than the way given to me
A passion for life
.
To be diligent to seek
What is true, noble, and right
To search fresh springs of life
A longing to be fulfilled
.
I’ll never arrive
But it’s a secret journey
Of my inner soul
Where at the center peace calls
And love pursues in silence
.
The noise is so great
The fears have deep roots screaming
With the adrenalin rush
How to calm the storm within
It will take your best thinking
.
Do I fight or run away
I felt panic in my soul
Depression knocked at my door
Who would come and help
.
I have asked for help
Looking around I have found
Resources of love
.
This will take courage
To seek what is good and right
To persevere and control
The dark voices in my soul
To choose life and healing grace
.
There are thoughts in me that lie
It’ll take wisdom to detect
To cut through the false feelings
Expose assumptions
.

    Our thoughts are very similar, you have found ways to express yours much better than I can. Thank you for giving voice to the thoughts of my heart.

    Ever on the journey but never alone.
