The path once so bright
Now hidden from sight
Is not to be seen
Behind its own screen
I crave the white light
Luminescent sight
I reach out my hand
"Right now!" I demand
And then I fall down
I scrape myself brown
And trust I do not
This can't be my lot
This dreary old way
Upon which I lay
Not fit for my feet
No, not even meet
I thought myself good
But there as I stood
I fell down again
Broken in my pain
I cried out in fear
"Lord why am I here?!"
And then through dark
I saw a light mark
The place where He stood
The One wise and good
He said "It's for You."
His promise is true
"I'll never forsake"
This statement I'll take
As I carry on
In my heart a song
For He is my Light
Faith makes my path bright

2 Corinthians 12:8-10, 13:4
For this thing I besought the Lord thrice, that it might depart from me. And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ's sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong. For though he was crucified through weakness, yet he liveth by the power of God. For we also are weak in him, but we shall live with him by the power of God toward you.

Author's age when written

I wrote this last week while I was going through a few rough days. Sometimes it's hard to see past my own fear but thank God He always points me to the light! I have a back stock of poetry just waiting to be published in here...I think it's some of my best yet. :) I hope y'all will enjoy them once they're up. :)


Thank you so much Damari! This is exactly what I needed to read today. The Lord sure does work in mysterious and wonderful ways :) I can't wait to see what you have written now! You are right! You just keep getting better and better! Blessings to you!

Oh I'm so glad that this helped!!! I know it helped me get my perspective back on track. :)

I don’t thrive off of chaos: chaos thrives off of me.
