A new day has dawned…my choice– can be a great one
Something’s not right…feeling real bad, before even seeing the sun.
Startled upon Awakening… no desire of my own.
Feeling overcome…overwhelmed…dilemma unknown.
I cannot move, I am pinned to the bed
Fear the unknown
What will happen if…?
The force is so powerful, what to do?…questions…in my head.
If only I could call out for help, fight this intruder
Don’t give in
It’s reality…what can I do?…Again, I am the loser.
Please kill me now, don’t do the unknown.
To be abused, defenseless…in my own home
Cry out for help, like it mattered…if I did
Reminding me of being that scared, defenseless, little kid.
Put a gun to my head and stop the “Now” pain.
Anger and resentment
All stirs like a cauldron, racing through my veins.
I need to get out from under this perpetrator of pains.
Stop the infliction
Jesus loves me
Why do I not secure my own home…does that make me insane?
How do I wrestle to regain control?
How do I do it?
What will be different?
If given the chance to LIVE…To continue my stroll!
It is crazy to sleep in a crime-infested neighborhood.
Lock the doors
Keep look out
It doesn’t take a genius, for this to be understood.
If not on the lookout this burglar is vicious
Steeling and lying
Hurting and destroying
Lost are the memories…intoxicating…bitterly
What could have been, if innocence not lost?
Stolen with the material things, and at what cost?
The lies that were told to justify the action
You deserve it…
Reduce me to less of a person—a minor fraction.
This molester of body and mind knows no limits
Slicing and dicing
Nobody knows the real cost…a voice reduced to mere “ribbits”.
There is only one way to combat this hurtful enemy
Choose to live and attack the attacker with the one true remedy.
To know your enemy and the weakness he possesses
Don’t give in
Choose to Live, move beyond the limitations…the stresses
When you realize the enemy is living in your shorts
Control your thoughts
What do you want?
Your thoughts create reality…takes you to feeling’s ports!
How you battle this enemy…decides how big you get to play..
Thoughts become actions
Actions become behavior
In the “Now” victories… living life like it matters…day by day!
…CHOOSE WELL WARRIORS!!!
