One of those days

Hard to get up and go days,

Hard to put on that smile

To just feel normal days.

Feeling the air press against me days,

Feeling like I’m not awake

Like I can’t find my center days.

Seeing the darkness days,

Seeing my own frailty

The horror of separation days.

Finding you with me days,

Finding you gentle

Finding you listening

Finding you solid ground

Finding you here

Finding you loving me

Finding you with me days.

    I’m reading an IVP book right now called “Imagine: A Vision for Christians in the Arts” (which, incidentally, you might like). The author talks about how too many Christians artists dwell in sappy, sentimental, sanitized versions of life where everything is always okay with God. But this poem is real and relatable. It reminds me of the Psalms. 🙂
