When life seeks to throw us in the pits.



I can’t lie because there’s days

When I want to throw in the towel

And after enough days like those

I wonder how I’ll get through life at all


A battle seems to be forever brewing

Somewhere lurking just out of my reach

Tempting me to give up everything

And forget to practice what I preach


After being out in the battlefield

For any extended length of time

I feel I become another victim

In a string of unnecessary crimes


And it’s hard to bounce back again

When life seeks to throw us in the pits

I have a difficult time climbing out

Which is challenging for me to admit


Yet by and by I get through it all

These struggles I try to keep hidden

Someday I hope I’m strong enough

To just finally say good riddance

  5. It would most definitely is true, my dear. The trouble is we don’t don’t rely on or turn to Him as often at we should; which should be all the time. Myself included
