Undaunted

A Poem By Mairead // 11/7/2011

 Picking myself up,

one more time

I'm trying,

to see through tears 

once more, is my light dying?

I've surrendered 

all that I know how,

can You just answer

and hold my heart?

It's been full and heavy

I want You 

to renew it

into what will reflect Yours.

My littleness

is breaking

my humanity overtaking.

Will You set this right?

I'm asking for You to fight the fight.

When burdens are heavy

When pathways are dark

it's hard to know what You want

or where You are.

But still I keep searching

I keep walking my narrow road

at least there's a line 

to follow.

My dream is distant

I want to be Yours,

my desires indefinite 

let them be torn

to better find Your will.

For Your comfort still

is found

in the binding of my soul.

Help me to reach

the graces I should

so that not selfish 

or tied hands rise to You

but ones undaunted in love

strong, resolute, unbound,

wide open, 

holding nothing

but want of You.
