Writing, Crying, Praying


Poem : Writing, Crying, Praying

I lie down to sleep

with the pen and paper

by my side.

That is really when

the feelings can not hide.

Putting pen to paper

is as cathartic

as shedding tears.

I have not felt this sad

in years.

This situation is

feeding on my fears.

The tears are coming too.

Teardrops on the paper.

I am just praying-

God, I really need a favor.

I rise up from the bed

and instead,

get down on my knees,

Scroll to Continue

praying fervently

regarding things

that God knows

and that He sees.

He knows my needs

and that something

is not right.

He will let me know

whether I should give up on

this particular struggle

or continue to fight.
