It’s Dark, But Still…


It’s always darkest before the dawn

But where has all the sunlight gone?

Where hope once stood, so tall and proud

She’s shrunken now, lost in the crowd


Love and joy, kindness peace

They all take wing and beg release

Heartache prospers, tears do fall

This wasn’t in the deal at all


My words they fall on concrete ears

While I alone drown in my fears

That what I dreaded has come true

My heart that beats, beats just for you


And yet you try to look away

With every word that I don’t say

I know that I’m the one to blame

Yet all that changes stay the same


I in my world, alone am I

My chosen path, don’t even try

And still the strength it rises still

I will, I will, I will, I WILL


Not for you and not for me

But for another, my world to thee

I don’t know how or when or where

I’m always on my way to there


So for the things you’ve taught me now

I will not fall, I will not bow

Purposes, mine, and deep they stay

I’m not alone, I still can pray…

    There is divine power in the prayer of a righteous woman. It is nuclear, atomic yet creative. Praise God for wet cheeks and worn knee caps, mothers are praying for their families. Sometimes, this is the stretched elastic band that holds it all together. Lord Jesus turn the tide in the morning, amenn!!

    Your words truly are compelling.

      Thank you Julie… this was one of those, “grab a napkin before I lose it!” kind of things 🙂 I’m learning to let my inner voice out, ever so slowly….and finding it rather healing.
