Sometimes, I feel...

Sometimes
I feel like a
dead heart
walking
lost on a path
no longer mine;
Limping
with the weight
of another’s
agenda,
misplaced
in spirit
and mind.

Sometimes
I feel I could
climb a mountain
and sing
with the angels
on high;
with hope
in my soul
and joy as
my song
and with my arms
and heart
open wide.

Sometimes
I feel lost
in a world
that doesn’t want
me
where agenda is
another’s goal;
trapped by
religion
not of
God’s making -
trapped in
mind
body
and soul

Sometimes
the tears
they won’t stop
flowing,
as grief
weighs heavily
upon my breast;
and I try
to go on
though I feel
my heart breaking
and I pray
“God,
take my next breath”

Sometimes
I feel as though
this world
will suffocate me
when love
is distant and
when hope
is low;
and I fret
as I fall
on knees
bloodied and trembling,
begging for a love
I no longer
know

Sometimes
I feel as though
this world
cannot touch me
and strength
is the power
that wins all
internal wars;
but then
I remember
He asked
that love be
my weapon,
and my heart again
opens
a little more

Sometimes
I feel I could
slay the dragon
other times
I seek for it
to slay me;
but that is the beauty
and the challenge
of being human:
that we keep on going
no matter what we feel

The tides
they change
with each new season
a new day can bring
rain
or shine
so I feel
no matter what
my present emotion
I will not give up
in hopelessness
and joy will once again
be mine…

Sometimes, I feel...
