Trust

Trust

A Poem by Keith Allen Covell
"

Having faith in God and His Son.

"
I am floating down a river
I attempt to grab at anything
I become the water
I do not feel free

I am cascading, relating
I am trying to keep a face
I become what I always am
I do not feel like me

I try and I try and I try
To no avail
What am I trying?
Truly, racing down the aisle

I look up and pray
And there's some delay
But not always
I try and I try and I try

I try to be sane
Remain the same
But therein lies the problem
I'm fighting against the stream

I'm fighting against myself
Not giving it all to God
He had already told me
"Just give it to me child"

I hold my head high
For a second, I feel alive
I listen to His Words
But again and again I lie

I lie to myself
Keep myself wondering why
I fall to the earth
Keep myself inside

I'm caught in this pool
Of white water, rushing
Has me constant and clean
Though I look for direction

It traps my mind
It makes me believe
That I need its protection
That I need to be "me"

But it's all misguidance
Deceit from below
I know what must be done
I've done it before

I'll cut through the swirl
Of nonsense and lies
Trust in the Lord
To gather my stride

Have faith in Jesus
To guide me to Him
To be this new river
That guides others in

Nicely expressed and so heartfelt, life is like a struggle and you sometimes feel as though you are losing the battle and going under. But faith, determination and knowing, in the end, it is all worthwhile. If you just hang on a little longer then struggle will be over. And you learn a valuable lesson on top from your woes and strife as well. Life is like an unwritten chapter we add to each and every day. To our book of life.
