Not stealthily through the night
but in broad daylight trouble and anguish found me
piercing like the harsh rays that shook my eyes awake.
my heart was laid barren
and depression walked in
cramping my grey matter
into contorted figures of
Your commands are my delight?
…well, they give me the strength at least
to fight these daily battles
and see a portion
of a gentler light.
Psalm 119 vs 143: “Trouble and anguish have found me out, but your commandments are my delight.”
