In Spite of Me.
Updated: Dec 16, 2020
Foreword: This piece is about feeling far from my faith and God at times. Especially during times when I am uncertain about what the future may hold. Particularly prevalent is this thought process when it's in the early hours, and I'm in physical discomfort. But, also despite of my failings and doubts, acknowledging Gods promise.
Dawn it rises beyond the pane Inky black disolved Light it cannot tame...
Another night watching hours pass To sleep it seems
Is in the past...
Kept awake by body and mind Eyelids heavy
Sleep hard to find...
At times so distant You seem to be I'm here, so desolate, alone just me..
Unexpected turn life has taken Familiar now foggy Lost, feel broken..
But beyond it all I hear you calling Save me from myself Stop me falling..
Arms outstretched you reach for me Assuring grip Held so tightly..
You see beyond what I can see Over horizons Of which there are many..
For in spite of me, your love you share Never hold my failings For me you care.
