Be Still

A Poem By Damaris Ann // 8/21/2016

Animosity
My perplexity
A redundant thought
Some small worries fraught
Heart-torn and bleary
Blinded and weary
Sentences framed
Tongue is now aimed
Give me discretion
Show me my lesson
Diminish my fears
Wipe away my tears
I can't understand
But I won't demand
Please Lord, give me sight
Let me be alright
I want to trust You
Your promises true
Delight in Your will
Heart of mine, be still
Look up for the Light
His love gives us sight

Damari!

Your writing has become better and better, and this was beautiful. You truly have grown as a writer. I love the message in this.

My only comment was, is that it feels unfinished...left open-ended. Which is cool, but something like this I felt maybe it at least needed a full stop! Anyway, something to keep in mind for the future!

This is so beautiful...I just love it! Its very similar to something I'm going through at the moment..so I related :)

Goodbye? Oh no, please. Can’t we just go back to page one and start all over again?” – Winnie The Pooh

It was left hanging because at the moment when I wrote it I was left hanging (in an emotional sense) as well. :) so you read it JUST RIGHT!! That makes me super happy. :)
