Just want to scream sometimes,
But that’s what unstable people do, right?
Do you ever get tired of having to be stable?
Can I just get a pillow or an empty forest?
Something to throw when I’m sick of this scene?
Have you ever had a place that you owe something to-
but you want to wail on its very walls at the same time?
Tell the people inside to just leave you alone-
let me take myself, my kid,
and just go? Yet, you can’t.
Just want to stop the effort, the worry,
and go be “normal”
whatever that means.
So then I scream out to God-
And His answer is the same as before, calm.
“I am here.
I have a plan
And its okay now,
Lean on me, quit trying
so hard and let me.
I know what it means to scream, too.”
I wrote this when reflecting on some times in my recent life, in the past few years. Who would like to guess what the inspiration was, what times they were? 🙂 Thankfully, the times I feel like “screaming” are not all that often. But they happen. And I thought some others could relate. Everyone feels like this sometime if we are honest with ourselves.
