Lead Me Through The Storm

I’ve been in this storm for so long

At this stage it’s almost like nothing else could go wrong

Deep inside my heart, I know this isn’t where I belong

All that I need now is a change of song

 

I’ve been in this storm for a while

Every day was like walking a thousand mile

It made no difference whether I frown or smile

It was like drowning in the great River Nile

 

I’ve been in this storm having nowhere to run

Situations kept taking their own turn

I have a father who calls me his son

But I had no faith to believe that after the rain, comes the sun

 

I’ve been in this storm with question more than answer

My situation got worse than breast cancer

Life turned me around like a ballet dancer

Held back like a guest by a party bouncer

 

Every time I look back and reminisce

Tear drops and brings me to my knees

In a very little prayer, I beg you please

That one day, you make this storm cease

Though at times I get happy but with a clause

Someone told me the storm is the bridge I needed to cross

Family and friends might leave me to nurse my loss

But I must keep carrying it, because it’s my cross

 

Lead me through this storm

You know where I started from

A very long way I have come

I hate to see what a prince like me has become

 

Help me believe it’s for a moment

Help me endure the pain and the torment

Help me have faith in HE that you have sent

Lead me through this storm

You own my future, my past and my present.

  2. life’s but an endless strife
    daily struggling to thrive
    through hurdles and storms
    beyond giant titanic worms

    let He who made me
    come and make me be
    that which he had in mind
    when he created me to prescind……

      1. @ufuomaotebele
        let she who truly knows
        beyond the cock’s crows
        sing the song to my ears
        that both my fears and tears
        will vanish beyond the starry sky
        as words make sense when conjoined………….
