Deep Within My Soul


Lightning is the only lighting I have

This storm envelopes my sense of being.

A moments glance is full of darkness

But then brilliant light outlining these shadows;

These demons.

The thunder is the sound of the hunter’s growl

I feel like running but I’d rather sink.

This rain is a cool relief to my hardened face

Maybe the break of dawn would be a change of pace.

The wind howls, however long and eerie

I find that I feel desolate and weary.

Did you notice I’ve begun to rhyme?

I swear, the flashes of light are to blame.

I can’t keep track of these shadows

They come and they go.

Pieces of peace are what I lay in as I stare out my window

A war between light and dark wages out there

And deep within my soul

    I know of that battle. Fortunately, I also know the creator of that light – as do you – so though the battle may wage on, the final outcome is already determined… (if only we could keep that in our minds)

      1. Well enough – pastor has me doing piano/vocal worship on Tuesday evenings during prayer meeting – mixed blessings – I love doing it, but the negative in me says I’m not good enough, it’s too much, etc etc —
        How are things with you?

      2. Ahhh, that’s tough! I too have heard that voice but the Lord has always been quick to remind me that it’s not about my worth, talent, or skill. Do it for Him, friend. πŸ™‚
        Im alright. In a place of questioning for my future. The Lord is in control but being in this place is scary. Especially being a person who likes control.
