I Need Direction


I am crying and crying and no one can tell,
because the tears don’t cause my eyes to swell.
But all is not that simple and easy to hide,
especially the coldness that is growing inside.

Penetrating deep feeling among turmoil & strife,
embarrassing sensitivity, not even shared with my wife.
These feelings are growing more and more, day by day,
and still, the only answer is the spiritual way.

I’m pulled in all directions- north, south, east, & west,
no matter which road, I still find no rest.
Please, again, please, what more can I say,
I can’t even find rest at the end of the day?!

Perhaps if I took time to kneel down and pray,
a door would open & I’d find a way.
Lord, I surrender it all up to You,
so easy to say, yet so hard to do.


One morning’s misreading,
I’ll make up by two.
Soon it became,
more than I could do.

A devotion- a little time spent with the Lord,
found little room with all else aboard.
A fleeting moment to pray, put on my heart,
no time to give in and do my part.

Life’s so encumbered,
by all that surrounds.
The hustle & bustle,
the ups and the downs.

So easy to renew the habits of old and forget,
I don’t know how I drifted round and round.
It’s seems we just talked only yesterday,
the promises of the streets of gold.

Someone has to rescue me from this turmoil and strife,
and put some meaning back into my life.
