I laid awake counting my failures,
The accusations surrounded me completely,
Hurled at me each day,
The list seemed endless.
I was drowning,
Sucked down by despair,
Going under for the third time,
I thought that this was the end.
Then I heard a different voice,
One that spoke loving words,
Sometimes the words were soft,
But, my God kept speaking to me,
He was my life raft,
Guiding me to wisdom,
Failure no more – Safety is found.
