Poem: Peace of Soul

Lord, I am always asking
“How long must I go on?
How long must I fight
To keep my darkness contained?”
And Lord, in darkest moments
I cry out to thee
“Let me sleep
For I am weary
O Lord, let me sleep
But never do you grant
This heartfelt request
And always do you answer
With great tenderness
“My son, you swore to serve
And your time is not yet done
Fear not for I am with you
And you have much to do”
And so I keep on going
Knowing I am chosen
And the one who chose
For in my time of greatest darkness
I swore myself t you
And every day as I struggle
Through my fear and pain
Through loneliness
And great sadness
I choose you again
Again and again
And though I fear
That I am not a good friend
And though I fear
That I will never know
The love of sweet requited romance
I am guided by your Spirit
To my destiny
It always does assure me
I have a purpose to fulfill
And it will further your ends
And that gives me peace of soul
