I want to write clever words, and thoughts to entertain.
I want to write of some fun find, or some sweet love gained.
Instead a battle seems to rage, a struggle for my mind;
Of negative and angry thoughts, or more of the sad kind.

I lift my eyes up to the hills, hoping my Help to see.
But clouds cover the mountain top and a dense fog covers me.
I beg to trust through endless doubt, believe in Truth that’s near;
I plead for guidance and for Faith though the way unclear.

I want to say cute words and quips; to make you smile and laugh.
But instead tonight I can simply pray and keep stumbling up the Path.
