most days this world is much too much for me.
too much beauty and too much ugliness.
too much terror and fear surrounds me…
while peace reigneth within me.
I am in this world, but not of it…
so much feeling inside…too much to handle some days.
feelings side-by-side with apathy.
what a mess I am!
praise to You for the peace, for the beauty, the joy…
for the sadness, the pain, the tears.
everything I feel is a gift…
I am dead yet live because of You and Your gifts.
I say again, praise to You!
