#291 ~ Psalm Series. 5

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

tremoring terror.

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.”
