My Resting Place~27 June 2014

 I have sought some consolation,
Through remorse and bitter tears,
The weight my shoulders had to bear,
Through all these many years.
Bound by shackles forged by fear,
No mortal tool could break.
Just who or what could make it stop,
Could from this Dream me wake?
Light headed joy I hope to find
As new wine glads the soul.
Judgement from the scales declare
All my parts made whole.

My Resting Place…19 June 2014

Over Shadow Me
When all of my oppressors
Are more than I can bear.
Or when I am broken
Hope forsaken
Without a prayer.
Over Shadow Me.

When the ones
That called me friend,
All have left me in the end.
Or if I in deep despair
With only troubles left to wear.
Even in my defeats
Humiliation and conceits.
Over Shadow Me.

When the Joy 
Of victories I find.
Please don’t let them
Leave me blind
And stalled here in the way.
Please don’t let
The moment pass.
Over Shadow Me.
