Rescued

June 28, 2018

 

 

Rescued 

 

Often life finds me lost

Lost in a sea of regrets and pain

Over come by waves of grief 

and shame.

 

Waves that even rip my very soul

Pushing me below the surface

So far under I cannot see relief

 

Lost in massive pains of fear

That fill my heart with deep despair

Leaving me breathless and broken

 

In my mind, past relief or repair

I sink further, deeper into darkness

Consumed with doubt and brokenness

 

As I sink further down

The weight and frustrations

Cloud my mind and heart and sight

 

Leaving me alone and frightened

Feeling all is lost and gone

No hope for rescue or even light

 

The very bottom draws so close

I feel its solidness and endless mass

I yearn to sink even further

 

Perhaps in the depth

I can hide and be forgotten

Left alone to soak in misery

 

That quite dark place

Where no one comes 

To disturb my aloneness 

 

Will I be rescued or sink deeper

Will someone care or notice

That I am alone, lost, past feeling

 

Is this journey meant to be

For me or anyone

A deep dark lonely endless sea

 

And yet

There is a glimmer

So very small

 

That breaks even

The darkest parts

And the deepest depths

 

A light

That penetrates 

All

 

It brings peace 

Where hope is lost

And darkness reigns

 

And starts the assent 

Slowly

Almost without notice

 

Up up up

Out of the darkness

Slowly ever slowly

 

Light and breathe

Are restored

With added strength 

 

That can only come 

From the light

That destroys all darkness

 

His light and love

His grace and mercy 

Lift me beyond what I cannot endure alone

 

I am lifted 

Once again 

To the calm surface

 

The waves that raged

The depths so dark and deep

Are now forgotten

 

As He 

With hands of others 

Lifts me up

 

And once again  

I see the light

And Feel the peace

 

And Rejoice

That I am not alone

Ever
