People push me, demanding my attention
Expectations go higher, above whatís humanly possible.
All I want to do is scream, hide, pull my hair out;
Could everyone just leave me alone?
Even my familyís plea aggravates and irritates.

Please, I need a long, relaxing vacation
Everyone stop talking to me Ė right now!
Alone is place Iíd like to visit forever.
Canít you see I need some quiet time?
Every cruel word I speak breaks hearts, hurts feelings.

Going to look up? says a whisper in my soul.
Oh. Whoís that? I forgot to pray again? No wonder Iím stressed.
Daughter, when will you learn to lean on Me?
Someday, Lord, I promise, with Your grace and help.

Pardon my rude behavior today.
Everything pushed me beyond my feeble limits.
At last I remembered I have a Savior:
Christ the Prince of Peace, Who freely shares His peace.
Even I have bad days. Forgive me?

Nice one. Liked it. Many times we just fail to see God.

This probably describes more of us than we'd like to admit! I can see this used as a skit in a youth group setting or even a woman's meeting. The message is a good reminder that the Source of our peace is just a prayer away! Thanks! :)

I'll admit it, Jan! I agree with your above comments. I liked this piece.

Blessings on your writing.
