This is a psalm written by me.
In a Time of a Distress
Writing to keep the demons away,
writing to keep my fears at bay.
How silly it looks written down,
why am I wearing this frown?
Worry paves a path across my forehead.
My mind fills with dread.
Pacing in the kitchen I pray:
“Healthy and happy, let us all stay.”
So many things to wash, no time to sit still.
To forget about this I do not have the will.
So I pick up The Good Book for comfort
where He talks about all kinds of hurt.
God is there in Heaven above
with mercy He sends down His great love.
A sigh of relief slips past my lips.
I have found some good coping tips.
He will not give us more than we can carry,
but tonight the future is scary.
One day there will be no more tears
with this I silence my fears.
Sitting here I pray for the easy path,
praying to escape the wrath
of whatever demon lies beyond my door.
The battle will make me love God more.
Give me a sword God, give me a shield,
help me to make it across this field.
