*Spirit Filled*

My life was filled with a hundred form’s of fear,
thinking no body’s listening and nobody really cares.
That deep dark hole that I had inside,
was hardly big enough for all I had to hide.
I was curled up in a corner of my little room,
all I could feel was depression and gloom.
Saying to God, "why aren’t you listening to me ,
I want these feelings gone and to be set free

That seems like such a long lifetime ago,
everything is changed now I want you to know.
My prayers were answered in God’s Own time,
he wanted me to own what was really mine.
He told me gently, to take my own inventory,
only my wrong doings was my story.
Write it all down and then tell a friend,
then you will be ready to make your amends

Then you only need follow three simple steps for today,
cleanse your heart, trust Me and Pray.
Sweeping away all the prejudices of your life,
will take away the pain that’s sharper than a knife.
Abandon yourself only to Me,
And your life will change , you will see.
Then carry My word to all in need,
tell them your story and plant that seed

On awakening I ask you Father, to be beside me today,
to walk with me so I do not stray.
Father, I continue to do all you asked, and I am thrilled,
my heart is full of gratitude and I am Spirit Filled.
You have given me more than my heart can bare,
a loving family and friends that care.
The kindness and mercy that you have shown me,
has cleansed my heart and set me free

Artist's Description

Today I am filled with gratitude for the life I had, I would not change a moment. Though it may seem strange to some. The lessons I have learnt from an early age of thirteen when I left home right into my adulthood , that If I did not have those experiences , I would not have what I have today or be able to relate to you. God has truly blessed me.
I may not have everything I want, but I have everything I need in this life to be happy.

My inner rumblings reflect my personal trials,
dreams, needs and obligations.
My Poetry reflects who I am
