The Future …

Some days I feel like I have come so far, done so well

Since a year ago, when my world literally ended for me.

But then, I get a heavy feeling in my gut and the bells of doom kell

Their heavy tolls, awakening me to the emptiness within my heart.

I look around and watch sadness creep in like waves

Through my soul, my mind, my body, showing me the grave

That I do not have the courage to visit.

How do I keep the feeling of accomplishment and resist

The bells that ring in tandem to random thoughts of loss?

There is no way to shine from heaven the unknown gloss … of forever, together.

As I contemplate my many blessings

Through all of life’s testings

I realize the Universe’s infinity

And the peace and refuge of serenity

Trust in God’s decisions

For you in His divine wisdom

Especially when life is sad

There is serenity to be had

In abundance

Lethargy … This was a daily word challenge by www.dailywisdomwords.com Check it out!

Lethargy, the word is loathsome and cumbersome

Hard to say; ruins your day; hard to live; nothing to give

Mind in depression; body in regression

Stand up, fight back; don’t give up, get on track!

Never let lethargy win; I’ve been there

Beware, show that you care!
