Tired of constantly stressing
So with my pen I am confessing
My sins and wrong turns
Praying for guidance to return
Allowing life to take my joy
Disconnection notices starting to annoy
Causing disruption within my spirit
Pain so overwhelming trying not to feel it
Knowing He IS going to work it out
In that having no doubt
Just tired of struggling
Daily juggling
Amongst this madness
I must push through this sadness
And give my stresses to Him
The only one I can always depend
To carry me through any storm
Putting my life in His hands to transform
Realizing stressing was useless
Making my efforts fruitless
Refocusing my direction
Accepting life’s imperfections

God is watching you and guiding you like he is guiding your pen. Keep your head high to the Lord and not down on the devil. He knows your heart and he will protect you. Great poem JStar!
