knives and blades


struggle through the day,
chasing peace of mind,
bleeding, cut with knives and blades.

but then
the promise of hallelujah came,
his gift to me

he took me to the ocean blue
my hair in the wild wind,
the sky was tinted pink
like roses in the spring

he showed me where the beauty hid,
taught me how to breathe again,
healed my broken ribs,
washed away the tears with rain.

and somehow I found,
the strength within, 
to hold onto to this world,
when I felt like a petal, fragile
about to fall

  2. Your words have done it again. They create such a vivid picture. I like the contrast; from "struggle through the day chasing peace of mind" to "he showed me where beauty hid, taught me how to breathe again". The "he" is God?

    1. The "he" can be whoever your mind makes him. But yes. From my perspective, "he" is God. My everlasting, faithful God.
      Thank you so, so much <3
