The Overwhelmed

State of frenzy rolls this day
It bowls over a soul dismayed
It takes no prisoners and parts the way
The way to Life, made weak its prey

The lost desire to see things through
These burdens weighed that breaks in two
A soul searching for answers now
A need to work out things somehow

In prayers prayed, unanswered ones
Become the straws to break someone
Healing unseen too long to wait
Drowning now served upon hopes plate

Breathe, be still for answers near
This day to those who lend an ear
To GOD who speaks this very day
To you who thought GOD threw away

There is a time to fall on knees
A time to cry to be set free
Too long it's been, the toll in years
Years you thought GOD was not near

Know well, confess and too believe
For hands and feet were pierced you see
For pride has filled your precious soul
The soul Christ saved, yours His to hold
