In Darkness

I awaken, yet darkness remains.

 

Tormented and discouraged, I cry out,

“Lord, where are You?”

 

I search familiar places,

Yet, happiness eludes me

And my heart sags, soaked in sorrow.

 

Life’s trials and its senseless inhumanity

Weigh upon my soul,

And I wonder,

“Will my spirit ever again take flight?”

 

Overcome, I fall before You,

My eyes blinded with tears

As I call out Your name.

 

In You, Lord, I will trust,

Though the times give no reason.

 

My heart shall once again sing and be glad.

 

Inspired by Psalm 13.
