I hear the clutter
and clamor of life
Then beg for mercy
with no time to listen

Endless days
I beg for a tender ear
And no time to sit still

Tears stream down my weary face
As I fall to my knees
Begging for a helping hand

On my knees
I raise my tired arms
Pleading from the depths of my heart
Hoping in my weakened state
I close my eyes

Quiet surrounds
Warmth embraces
Stillness has overcome
In the depth of my heart
a calming whisper
brushes my senses saying,
Peace. Be still and know that I am God.

Rebecca, this was truly lovely - which made it all the worse that we had to disqualify it because of the word count. The minimum word count for Challenge Entries is 150 words. Your piece came in at only 102. Please keep entering the Challenge, but just keep in mind the word count limits (150 minimum and 750 maximum) and you'll be fine. Even if you just add an introduction paragraph (other than just adding a piece of Scripture) and you'll be covered. With love, Deb (Challenge Co-ordinator)
