Who Gets Me Through? — April 12, 2009

Who Gets Me Through?

I cling to You.
What more can I do?
I know that I will never
make it through this
dark night alone.
I need You to
lead me and guide me.
No one else will do.

So take my hand, please
and never let go.
Carry me through
this dark night of soul.
I am glad You are with me
wherever I go.
In good times and bad
You preserve my soul.

It is only You, Yeshua,
who gets me through.

A Day in the Life of a Survivor – April 18, 2005

A Day in the Life of a Survivor

Some days I do real well.
Some days I spiral down.
into the well of
who knows what?
where am I
who am I
it seems that only Yahweh knows
and I am lost in the dark
where am I
who am I
am I important
to anyone
I know I am
to some
to Yahweh
am I important
to myself
some days I love myself
some days I hate being me
some days I am comfortable
some days I am hurting
wounded…in deep pain
I write
I draw
I color
I sing
does it mean anything
anything at all
I guess it does
to someone
I hate what they did to us
to her
to me
she is dead, yet lives
I live, yet sometimes feel so dead
who won?
maybe both
maybe neither
a day in the life of a survivor
