FROM THE INSIDE OUT

The black cloudworshiping

is going away

The winds are tearing it apart

There’s nothing above my head

But the sun shining bright

 

I haven’t counted the hours

since the day it got here

I had just finished the harvest

and suddenly I felt:

FEAR

 

Chilly winds started blowing

right away

And the light abruptly vanished

 

I was totally alone

in the farm

In my little wooden house

 

Far from others

Unreachable

 

Then I saw those blood-red eyes

contemplate

what my life had just became

 

Staring from the window

Smily, evil eyes

 

What was day right then was night

Lifelessness

Desperation came to stay

I could no longer take it anymore!

I was a prisoner in my own house

due to outside issues

I had to stop what was happening

And that would have to be from the inside out

Then I opened my heart and cried

To the one who has power over all things

He heard my humble cry

And now I see it:

 

The black cloud

is going away

The winds are tearing it apart

There’s no fear above my head

But the tender savior Christ

 

No more eyes of accusation

No more loneliness or night

The black cloud

is going away

The winds are tearing it apart

There’s nothing above my head

But the sun shining bright

  3. wonderful write…i have had times in my ife that felt just the same..good that we have one to call on…

  4. I enjoyed the read, not only as a rememberance of the satisfaction yet sense of loss I felt when I did the harvest as a much younger man, but how you weaved it into what faith should mean – thanks!

  5. Lovely representation of your faith. Jesus is that powerful, He sets the captives free. :))
