Overwhelming Lives

Written by: Margeret Bailey

When life doles out unexpected twists and turns
we become overwhelmed and feel as if our faith has 
been spurned,

Relationships fall by the wayside, sometimes through
no fault of our own,  people let us down and stresses
keep piling up and we feel as if we could drown,

There are times when bad things happen to good people,
even with care and caution, life throws us a wave of 
repulsion unmasking our innocence and illusions,

Those of us who manage to survive the overwhelming
nature of life, find our own delusion in the deception of others
who we hold dear and in high esteem,

The people who have the ability to hurt us deeply,
make it a habit, hurting us continually until we muster
up the nerve to say enough!
