The sadness welling up, about to burst.
I numb myself to it as Iím afraid
To let it out, that Iíd feel even worse.
I bury feelings deep within my heart.
Afraid to let them loose, what would I do
If rising pain came up and drown my soul?
I donít know how Iíd ever make it through.
And yet by keeping evírything inside,
Iím trapped, held hostage by my unshed tears.
This isnít living, feeling like I do.
Can I be bold enough to face my fears?
Iíve heard the opposite of fear is faith.
Perhaps itís time to let it all give way.
I trust in God, that He wonít let me down.
Iíll feel the fear, but do it anyway.
As I release the dam, a flood of tears
Comes gushing forth, Iím nearly washed away.
And yet Godís hand is there to rescue me
To reach inside and hold my fears at bay.
To feel the pain that Iíve been holding in
Takes courage like Iíve never ever known.
Among the hardest things Iíve ever done,
And I could never face it all alone.
Although Iím overwhelmed by all I feel,
I will commit to working through the pain.
For itís the only way to truly heal.
I will find freedom past the teary rain.
