Lost in a sea of darkness
Feeling my way through the dark
Sometimes its a cake walk- smooth surfaces, even ground
and encouragement to know I’m doing the right thing
But other times, a lot of times
I prick my hand holding on to the rail,
I stumble on a rock or run into a wall,
and there’s a silence surrounding me making me feel
The only thing that gets me through these times
is knowing that in my heart lies the best guide
HE is the only reason that after my knees are bloody,
hands cut up,
feet are blistered,
body tired . . .
that I can still smile.
Cause if it weren’t for the storm I’d never appreciate the sunshine.
So I’m gonna hush my fears and quiet my tears
because I know HE’ll never leave me
and always lead me through!
I feel it…
Running through my veins
Coursing through my blood
Filling my heart
…….And I can’t quite put a name to it.
It’s a new feeling
It confounds me
Confuses me, all at the same time
Is it okay to feel this way?
Should I feel guilty?
It makes me feel like everything that is good and pure and happy is filling me with this unmistakable
amount of ……..
It almost feels like I should lock it away
And that makes me feel even more guilty
I find myself looking over my shoulder if I smile too big
Paranoid that if someone sees, they may make it go away
I catch myself singing in the shower
…then I stop midsong, scared that if someone hears me
They might take my music away
What is this feeling?
It’s an inch more than happiness
An ounce more than blissful
A mile below perfect
And a teardrop beside content
Even now I’m too afraid to put it to words
But know that I feel it…
I know it’s there
I know it’s real
I can almost taste it
And nobody is going to take it away
