My Lifeline

by Ariel Douglas (19 February 2016)

 

Breath

In my lungs

Tears

On my face

Sun

Setting on

All my dreams

Desperate

Crying out

Stranded

No escape

Deserted

On a forsaken island

Alone

On this island

Alone

All alone

But no.

I am not alone

Because I have all I need

No

Not my spirit

Not my will

Not my heart

No.

All I need

Is all I have

My Jesus

Living in me

This poem is about: 
Me
