Poem about a lost soul you finds healing
My heart filled with sadness,
would HE take me back?
Forgive my shame and
heal my pain?

I read his word,
through bloodshot eyes.
Their meaning lost
on this troubled mind.

Anxiety is all I feel,
I wonder if my thoughts are real.
Depression settles in.
I don’t know who I am.

The word then jumps of the page
Glad to combat me
My heart empties and refills
Joy of life HIS word reveals.

Writer’s Notes:
Prompt: “Proverbs 12:25” Anxiety in the heart of man causes depression. But a good word makes it glad.

Prompt Words: anxiety, heart, depression, word, glad. All must be bold/highlighted in grape.
