world of wiffledust

where creative minds can interact

For years, I wandered through the ashes of my past

Dwelling on pain, guilt, & heartaches that I thought would forever last

“Will I ever be able to move on, from my yesterdays be set free?”

I cried out to anyone who was willing to hear me

 

Scattered memories lingered deep within my mind

I just couldn’t seem to find a way to leave them behind

There too was laughter, light, & love among the remains

But the darkest memories sang the loudest of refrains

 

As much as I yearned for peace, for the ability to again trust

I was afraid of getting hurt and thought I’d forever deal with a world so unjust

At arms length, I thought it best to hold any promises of hope & love

Though silently, I prayed for things to change, hoping You’d hear me from above

 

Over the years, doubt, hurt, guilt, & fear have been losing their hold

It’s in Him that I have found the ability to be courageous & bold

To tell the evil that both surrounds and lives within me to get out

I do still falter now & then, but most days I am able to push away the fear & doubt

 

I look around me now & see a future so very bright

You have shown me the way by shining Your great light

I am not alone, for You are always with me

And now I want all to know that from my past, You’ve set me free
