Topic: The Deep End (03/06/14)

TITLE: Help! I'm Falling!

In the secrets of my thinking
where no one's gone before,
I grope around in a mist
for the peace I've lost once more.

God is lost deep in the mazes
that clutter up my mind.
I know He is everywhere
but my smokey eyes are blind.

I know He's always testing
so I might step beyond.
And He gently nudges me
so I'll stay the path I'm on.

What if He doesnít like me
and turns His back to me?
Or if I find He isn't real
and that He'll never be?

I hear this in a whisper
I fail to stop that voice.
I've fallen off the deep end
lost without a choice.

Suddenly I see a rainbow
God has sent a sign.
He shows me a soul thatís healed
I'm finding out it's mine.

I'm thankful God is patient,
waits til I ask for Him,
Never forces me to pick.
He brightens where it's dim.

With the dawning of the sun
He shows me He is there.
I feel His wings around me
that's why I know He cares.

A calmness in my soul
makes me feel so great.
He hears my every prayer!
He's given me a clean slate.

I know that He is here
to help me with this mess.
He pulled me from the mire
and helps me be my best.

No longer do I sit and fret
going off the deep end.
All my needs are being met
by God, who's my best friend.

Nice job! I especially like that part where you say that "smokey eyes are blind." How true! How poetic this is, I think you hit the nail on the head with what you're trying to say. Well done.

I love this poem. My favorite verse is "He shows me a soul thatís healed,
I'm finding out it's mine." That is Grace. Very powerful.
