My Savior (poetry)

My Savior

By Teresa Smeigh July 2016

The dark is creeping along within.

I cannot stop it or push it out.

The sunshine has long gone in.

I am left with plenty of doubt.


I know it is part of God’s plan.

Part of his reasoning for me.

I just wish he would let me in

Why must it be secrecy.


I must fight the darkness.

Not let my beliefs waver.

God is my life, my Father.

God is my savior.

            OMGOSH… WONDERFUL TO HEAR THIS!!!… I am so happy and relieved to hear this gurl…
            Yes praise the good Lord… amen, amen… I am so happy that they gave you some… its just not fair to have to live in all this pain and all the while trying to have some sort of life… but we must keep going as long at the good lord gives us another day then we must push on… even if all we do is sit and cry or when one has to lay down to rest n cry… it is ok…

                take a nap gurl… you have to listen to your body… its hard to listen when you feel like you should be doing something but its a must to listen to it or it just does more harm and makes you hurt more… I have learned the hard way…
                also if you feel better at night then switch around your time and be awake at night and sleep in the day…

                    ahaah I knew I love you gurl lol…I like the night as well… my better half is a night owl too or can be.. so if I stay up even with my musik going if he is tired he can sleep thru it and either way it don’t bother him…lol …
                    Oh I know how it is to struggle with sleep the other night I was up every 30 min … I hate the sleepy feeling you get during the day… it is like you said a big struggle during the day…do you have an office or a room that you could set up for just your use and make it your place so when you can’t sleep and up at night that you could go into and it wouldn’t bother anyone???…

                      No special room. I used to be upstairs and alone and bothered no one, but now since I fell down the stairs several times they have moved me down to the only open room. I have to be quiet at night now.

                      ohhh well its for your safety gurl… I understand that …
                      what about do you have a laptop and headphones???… maybe when you can’t sleep or being a night owl you can rest on the couch or your chair and write at night while listening to soothing musik or rock n roll lol and no one would hear you…

                      Great idea, but don’t see Santa obliging, but the way this desktop is working it may not make it much longer and I can’t afford a new computer. So it needs to continue its job.
