Poem: Midnight Walk

Voices in my mind.

Answers I can’t find.

A tear slides and falls.

I’m in my sins entwined.

~

Time for a midnight walk.

A quiet stroll around the block.

A look at the stars,

a plea to God for a talk.

~

Pouring out the problems,

feeling at the bottom,

clasping hands, knuckles white,

face dark and solemn.

~

The light of the moon streams on my face.

Mind slowing down from its race.

Closing eyes and breathing deep,

I am reminded of God’s great grace.

~

The night animals sounding,

peace falling and surrounding.

God is good, God is near.

Now my joy is abounding.

~

I lift my head to stare at stars.

No matter how badly sin mars,

the lights will still shine in the night,

healing will come to the scars.

~

Back home now, peace in my chest.

Praying, feeling blessed.

Climbing back in bed,

sleep comes quickly, mind happily at rest.

This was a poem I wrote a while back. Not sure why I keep writing poetry, I feel like I’m so bad at it. But never the less, I hope you enjoy this poem. 🙂

Until later,
