The Battle Rages On – Constant Warrior

 

 

light-at-the-end-of-the-tunnel

Floundering in the dark

searching for the light

Scattered thoughts disgorge

from a miasmic mind

too burdened to contain them

emotions escape through tears

Unrestrained anxiety

irrational fear

unwarranted consternation

Pounding chest, heaving

threatening to fragment

anticipating failure

and pain

Soul seeking solace

confronts the unseen

stands in trepidation

against enshrouded foe

A weary warrior

voice raised in supplication

beseeching favor through faith

Repudiating the disquietude

emancipating fragile psyche

reclaiming, regaining, reasserting

gathering the detritus

of unconsumed peace

forging it to armor

sheltering beneath

until the storm subsides

again

  1. Oh Crystal… you are so gifted. Keep using words to release… they are your painting, your sculpture, your muse. I will be praying for this internal battle to be won by Peace, Joy, God, and Self Love.
