Insides turned inside out
head to foot—shaking with fear
intense and troubled—no way out
pressure was on—wanting to run
praying for a tactical escape
please protect me from this fate

I call to God-- dawn, noon and dusk
sighs deep within He hears -- sets free
amidst danger-- once more whole and secure
whilst endurance learnt, His provision discovered
no need to flee --simply call His name
He reigns supreme -- above trials and pain

(Inspired by Psalm 55) "Oh, that I had the wings of a dove! I would fly away and be at rest…"

    Makes me think of the song "Jesus Take The Wheel" great scripture reference as well. I wrote a traditional Cinquain for you as an example. If you have a chance have a look.
