Battlefield In My Mind

Battlefield in the mind
negative thoughts fill my head
unsure if they are gut feelings
or unsubstantial lies instead
Wary, worried eyes
watch carefully and realize
all is not as it seems
In a world filled with crushed dreams
and selfish ties
the heart continues to buy
All the ugly lies
to eradicate all hope
leaving those only to cope
Instead of living a life of joy
despair is the ploy
to keep the people enslaved
never to freely reign

Love Song : Prayer #4

Lord I write you a love song
because of who You are
Lord I write you a love song
because You are my all
my provider, my strength
You help me run my race
no matter what the length
Lord I write you a love song
because in my time of need
You planted a seed
to supply for everything
Lord I write you a love song
for when I wished I was dead
You brought me daily bread
and gave me life everlasting
from Your living water spring
Lord I write you a love song
when I was forsaken
and torn down
You gave me a beautiful crown
when I was called worthless
You picked me up and cleaned me off
put a sign up saying “so valuable she’s beyond cost”
Lord I write you a love song
when I was deceived
beaten, bruised
lost and confused
You put Your arms around me
held onto me so tight
said “everything will be alright
no more do You have to fight”
no more will I be
under someone else’s control
because Lord you’ve made me whole
Lord I write you a love song
because now I finally see
the beauty that lies within me
and in Your image I have finally come to be
