Bouncing from frustration’s grim aftermath My faith ascends to withstand, cope and face Praising God for bestowed triumphant* grace As brave warrior surmounting failure’s wrath. Recovering from well-being's distress Amidst hypertension diagnosis My heart shines for radiant prognosis Cleaving to Christ, my Lord, the great fortress. Blest with hope, propped by enlightenment-gain My soul prevails to learn from wisdom’s wealth Treasuring eternal lessons of divine health To share bliss, love, and peace, never in vain. Propped for inevitable storm's arrival My will marches on steadfastly fervent Trusting the Lord Who controls each event Victorious still, beyond mere survival. Grateful to overcome personal battles While reaching-out to those in pain with care My spirit remains joyous against despair Braced by the Saviour, vanquishing rattles.
*2Corinthians 2:14 Now thanks be unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in Christ… October 23, 2022 10th place, "ER: Enlightenment Recovery" Poetry Writing Premiere Contest Sponsored by Chantelle Anne Cooke; judged on 10/25/2022.
