If only the world could see what I feel
then, would the world, know who I am
I’ve loved, lost and feared the world
for it is sometimes too much to bare

Control, power, is what I fear
for I am weak inside and full of pain
I shout and cry, but knowing
there is nobody there to hear me
I swallow the shame and anger
that lies beneath me

I am lost to reality and living in time
Though I am struggling through life
and all that it offers, I am only human
and that is what makes me . . . Me.

Still, I wish for the happiness and pleasure
that I have earned, but realize that, I have
not yet overcome the world’s greatest challenge

Love! and how to accept it –
I am ready to face my fears

My Challenge

I’m sitting in my hiding place
though I’m not alone.
I feel His presence guiding me,
taking me along.

I look around and smile bright,
telling Him to hold me tight-
because I am on a ledge.

Alone, I feel, I can’t stand right,
these challenges that pass me by.
Winds are blowing,
push me down.
Help me through the dark.

Yet I’ll hold on,
head held high-
Certain hardships will pass by.
At my side,
You and I,
everything’s alright.
