Detached

There comes a time in our lives that we are tempted by something that can change our lives in a way we can never imagine. In some circumstances we can have what I’m going to call a flesh attack. In case you don’t know that is when your flesh demands satisfaction. In that state we forget about the consequences or we just don’t care. A free for all is not necessarily free at all. Someone is going to pay be it one or both involved.

Her future had taken a sudden turn

The flesh got in the way

Never again would she be

The carefree teen she was yesterday

A decision that never crossed her mind

Had been made for her

The secret fun she enjoyed

Had gone a bit too far

She wondered as tears

Streamed down her face

How could this happen to me

No more will life be carefree

When she shared the news with him

He turned and walked away

Hadn’t seen or heard from him

Since that dreaded day

The unexpected bundle of joy

Had made his way

The pain and push

Now complete

Is here to stay

Where is the joy that abounds

Blank face and stony heart

Cold eyes starring into space

No connection to be found

Detached from the start

Train Whistles

Trains whistle blowing

Where is the train

Can this whistle I hear

Only in my head?

Maybe it is

Maybe it’s not

With every push

On the muscle tight

Trains whistle blows.

Muscles fighting

Every touch

No more pain

What is there to gain?

Release of tension

That is caused by strife

Relaxation that is needed

To get on with life.

Heal My Heart

Heal my heart oh Lord I pray

Take away the hurt and pain

That I release to You today

Fill the places that You healed

With Your solid steadfast love

Teach me to forgive, forget

Go up the path You prepared for me.

Not shackled to the ball and chain

Hurts, discouragement, fear and pain.

Help me keep my eyes on You

My truth, my peace, my guiding light

Whisper in my ear that You formed

To clearly hear Your calming voice

The words of peace, comfort and truth

Will guide me on my way to You.
