where creative minds can interact

I said that I'd share the poems I wrote while in jail, well I am starting to get around to that. :P I will post three today and more later. Here's my first one.

Tears keep falling all around me

Walking through the salty puddles

They splash up and drench me

Soaked and freezing cold

I feel so lost

The sky is dark and I can't see

I'm trying to find You

I'm reaching my hand out

Take it, Lord

Help me find the light

Before the darkness swallows me whole

I hear voices all around me

But I can't tell who they are

Crying out in the night

Lost souls trying to find their way

Though I'm not alone

I feel so lost

And only You can find me

Please come find me

I know deep in my heart

That You're here

I know You love me

Your love and grace are strong

I'm so weak, Lord

Please pull me into the light

The salt and sweat are stinging my eyes

The bitter cold and darkness threaten to take me

Despair is powerful

You are stronger

I fight within myself

Trying to quiet the voices

Trying to make sense of things

I reach out further

I fall and get drenched in the water

No longer puddles, but a lake

But I'm not drowning

I see Your light

Your hands take a hold of me

Breath, take rest my child

And trust Me

You just have to trust me

Well, one of the books I am going to write is all because of that "Here's looking at you kid" challenge. :P The other two are going to be based off experiences I called Locked Up based on the stuff I went through in jail and the other one will be about life in the fostercare system. I will probably post snippets and such here. :)

Thank you, it was a rough time. That day I was falling apart, I still remember it as if it were yesterday. But, I found my way out.
