I awaken to face another day,
Turmoil silently creeps my way.
Lesson learnt are now forgot,
Lost on answers, sorely sought.
I pray for guidance to face my day,
But alas dark sorrow comes my way.
Hardening my heart, no feelings shown
Gently crying tears of stone.
Why must I constantly feel,
That life holds no appeal?
Serenity just out of grasp,
Broken by abuse from the past.
The faith I find strives on,
To face another forsaken dawn.
Blessed is the lord I thank,
For my abundant supply of strength.
