Where ever I go, there I am

In my mind
there was a struggle,
my health and life 
I chose to juggle.

I abused my heart
and tore down my mind,
to good things in life,
I became blind.

It became so intense,
that I lost my sense.
In turn making it unto me,
my greatest offense.

Then the Lord saw fit,
to save me from myself.
To put those things which were 
dark,
upon His mighty shelf.

He restored my body,
and redeemed my soul.
Slowly turning me to a new creature,
from that which was old.

Although the fight never ends
and the struggle still exists.
Once I open my heart,
I find peace through all in which I 
must persist.

So I take it day by day
and lean not on what I understand.
Because there is no doubt,
that where ever I go, there I am...

    Thanks Gwen, I wrote the first few lines of that poem during a very difficult time in my life, I was incarcerated at the time and battling addiction. I wrote the last part of it when by the grace of God was saved from myself. I hope that others still in those same situations can somehow find release from the grips of that torment through those words.
