Poetry

My Joy

On no one else will I depend

On no one else will my smile bend

My joy comes from within

And when my heart does break

It will also mend

It will not only mend

But grow stronger as it learns

That my peace is a part of me

Not a result of all I observe

No it’s not from my friends

My work or my sacrifice

But from who I am 

And how I interpret this life

Poetry

The Wild

I took a step forward And there was no trail

Nothing to follow

No crumb, no sign, no sail
I took another step

Now in the wild

Surrounded by the unknown

Adventure lurking for miles
One step after another

Still unsure what next I’d find

When the unpaved road turned

Leaving all uncertainty behind
Enveloped in pastures of green

Learning in the wild and free

No path, no fear

Just my steps, my heart and me

Poetry

Refined

I could not have made it through without YouI could not have learned what I needed to

You were there and You provided

That trial would be useful, You had already decided

You saw what I couldn’t and saw what needed to be changed

You made it happen so thanks to You

I am no longer the same
Isiah 48:10
See, I have refined you, though not as silver; I have tested you in the furnace of affliction.
