A rumble in my soul

A rumble in my soul
I feel it down below
Distant disgrace and fear

It locks me all alone
Pull up my head
Turn now from dead

Life is living
Inside my head
The snow out the window falls

My heart is crushed inside these walls
I scream for help that doesn’t come

Finding peace from another drug
I say I’m unworthy and past reproach

God throws open a window I must go
Providence this time may be my last

I can’t sit back and let it pass
Here I go im jumping, God don’t let me fall

He caught me he caught me

Outside my pain filled walls.


Sunday, I wanted to try a poem. I don’t write poetry normally but I find when I write it, I love it.

This was inspired by a message I heard last night at an AA meeting and some reading this morning that reminded me that we can be trapped in side our own minds sometimes with no way out and how only an act of grace, a miracle can sometimes save us. But in that I find God and a Love and Life so powerful it makes every moment I am alive worth living.

I am a writer, a storyteller, a yarn-spinning freakazoid. My life is full of two things today, lessons and blessings. I write fiction mostly but I also love to write about my life and the things I go through on a daily basis. Writing it out inspires and motivates me and that's why I do it. Plus if it does that for me maybe it will for someone else too.

    1. Thank you for reading. I am no expert either I am a beginner at writing in general. I write with the idea that if it means something to me then maybe it will mean something to someone else.
      I am glad you enjoyed it. Thanks again for stopping by hope to hear more from you.

      1. Yes exactly I’m not expert as well but I believe simplicity is the key, just translating in writing certain feelings. We can work to improve the style and stuff but feelings will always be original
        You’re welcome and best of luck
