in between the moments of here and now.

My thoughts,
are heavy with indecision burdened by doubts.

in hard place between two rocks.

Faith and doubt,
are torn with tension like fabric rips
along already unraveling seams.

The world of noise,
silently exists inside my head
the screams no one can hear.

Light and love,
is what I desperately seek
to find a place of rest and peace.

in a place of my own choosing.

My thoughts,
are searching for grace and mercy.

I chose to stay inside your embrace.

  1. This is so incredible…it completely describes that place…the place where you feel like you are being stretched and yet you know that everything is going to be ok. I have been in this place….and a good friend reminded me that everything is happening exactly the way it is supposed to! Thank you <3

  2. “Faith and doubt” – Ugh! Been there. Way more than once. I’ve learned that things are not always as black and white as we often think.
    I know you’ll pull through Mark. Just remember who to keep going to with it.
    Bless you.
