Considering

Legal…
…the right to remain still.
Criminal…
…the right to kill.
Victim…
…the loss of your will.
Life…
…nothing to feel.

PS. Legal criminal, Victim life.
Still will. Kill feel.
Remain still, kill your will to feel.

Souls Trapped In Life

Lives trapped in souls
that are trapped in bodies,
that are trapped in life.
Brains struggling to cry
Leave me alone
And let me die.
Hands that reach for someone…
Anyone, and yet no one.
God is the only one who knows,
Who understands,
And only He can touch their hand.
God, hug Your children…
Embrace Your souls.
You are their only hope
And their hope is Yours.

God Knows 7.3.11

God knows where I have been
when He has led me there.
He was the one preparing me
for things I could not bear.
Confused from the moment of arrival,
my confusion continued to grow.
To know when the white flag was heeded,
only God did know.
How precious His journey for me has been.
I’ve treasured every minute.
I never would have ventured
if He had not been in it.
So now of course I move
praying He still comes along,
trusting He still leads me,
even when I am wrong.
He knows my every step
long before I do.
If He knew I was going,
He knew He’d go too
because all my prayers
are to stay in His will.
I know He wants the same for me.
I know He loves me still.
