    Though I've been through
    The storm and the rain

    And at times feel
    As if I'm going astray

    I won't complain
    Because
    Your grace
    Is sufficient
    Enough
    For me

    Though
    I've been through
    Hard times and many trials
    You have always
    Provided for me

    Now it's
    Time
    That I trust you

    Once again
    With my life
    My love
    My relationships
    My body
    And my needs wants and fears

    I know
    You knew me
    Even before I was formed

    You know me better
    Than I know myself

    And you've shown
    Me
    And cared for me
    With you're love

    So
    I give my life

    To you
    Right now

    I give
    This lust

    And I ask
    You to

    Give me strength
    Because
    Many will come and go

    And the hurt and pain
    I can not endure

    The hurt and pain
    Is what
    Has left me behind

    Please
    Send me healthy
    Friendships
    To last a long time

    I know you
    Know what's best for me

    And you're
    The ultimate
    Looking out for me

    I know
    You keep
    Telling me
    Through people
    That you love me

    And still
    I just don't
    Understand

    Just exactly
    What you want from me

    I just don't
    Exactly know
    What you mean

    Thanks
    For looking out for me
    I just want to
    Thank You In Advance
    For meeting the need

    I just want to
    Thank you
    In advance
    For wanting
    ME

    For loving me
    Even when
    I didn't want
    Or love myself

    I just want to
    Thank you
    Most of all
    For enduring me
    And being there
    Because you are
    There
    All the time

    Although
    I just
    Don't know how much more
    I can take it

    Your Love love
    Still endures
    And I know that I can make it

    I won't complain

    Poetic Psalm

    Desert Storm,

    Sistah, this is truly a poetic psalm. I throughly enjoyed this read and I felt you all the way. I have been in this place, that why it is so familiar to me. Thanks for sharing this intimate poem. This is what God is looking for...a yielded heart. Keep writing girl, you have one powerful gift here. I certainly hope this is not the only one you have posted. I'm tryin' to hunt up some mo.
