I see the distortion growing with each day,
More misery is showing but what can I say.
Confusion is all that I seem to now know,
Delusions in my life all continue to grow .
Darkness fills all the empty spaces I find,
Sadness grows unrestrained in my mind.
What hope is there for someone like me,
Tangled in my problems trying to get free.
Looking for help I find unreasonable replies,
Saying I am selfish for feeling I want to die.
The compassion I need only angers others,
Those who claim to be my sisters & brothers.
What I know to be true I learned from God,
Living life is difficult and will often be hard.
God’s word shows the way to find true hope,
All we need to survive and to be able to cope.
His love gives us all the strength that we need,
To make sure that in the end we will succeed.
Never let any others who say they care distract you,
Remember to keep God first in all that you may do.
The closer we are to God and to following His way,
The harder Satan works to steal our souls each day.
So never forget with Jesus we have nothing to fear,
His promise of Salvation and Heaven is almost here!!
