    I sit on the porch gazing at

    The drunken men sitting on the front steps

    Of the building

    At the many drug deals

    Taking place in front of us

    The young girls with their tight jeans,

    Revealing tops,

    And the occasional one with a baby bump

    The rowdy teenage boys who only seem to care

    About whose sneakers are the freshest

    All the while a woman next door

    Is screaming

    From the abuse that is being inflicted

    On her

    And no one seems to care

    But me

    Save Me 

    I get so lost

    In this person I don’t want to be

    Hoping to unlock any kind of happiness

    Unlocking only all the bad memories

    Of the heartache I repressed long ago

    Making fresh all my healed wounds

    Unleashing all the anger within

    I have only ruined me

    I kneel before You


    I can no longer keep running

    From this vacancy

    With this yearning to be filled

    I ask that You fix

    This desolate place

    That has become my heart

    Heal my tainted eyes

    That refuses to see the good

    In anything

    Clear my mind of this useless clutter

    And fill it with visions of You

    Save me from Me

    Save me from the nothing that I’m holding on to

      Amen!! He hears you. He knows what you need before you even asked Him. Always know that Hes in control. Hes going to glorify Himself in your life in a great way!

    How did I get stuck in this place again-

    Desperately looking for a way out?

    I led myself here

    To then figure out

    I forgot my way back

    I run in circles

    Only to be left in a daze

    Just to end up in the same place

    Same pain

    Same darkness

    The one that wraps itself all around me

    Until I can no longer breathe

    Or function

    But you always come on time

    Your love- Your light

    Makes the darkness no longer surround me

    You never leave

    You wait for me to call out Your name

    Even if I can’t mutter the words

    You hear my heart cry out

    And there You are

    To save me

    To give me love

    To shower me in your unexplainable mercy

    Unexplainable warmth

    Unexplainable light

    This is where I’d rather be

    Lost in the unexplainable

    In all that is You
