Things weren’t supposed to turn out this way.
Yet, I find myself dealing with the fallout
Of my life to this point.
I am fighting for sanity and survival,
While God remains silent.
My prayers bounce off the walls and ceiling.
I face another day without help from on high.
My spirit is laid low and my mind is clouded
To the point I can’t think straight.
I am hesitant to trust my decision making process
Because a few of my choices led me to this place.
There are positives, but I must remain focused
On the ever encroaching reality of today.
