Straits

I open my eyes,
It’s a brand new day,
My heart whispers “Thank you, Jesus”
I squeeze my eyes shut,
Clench my fists,
Open my mouth wide and then I hear it,
It comes from deep within me,
From the very core of my spirit,
I scream as loudly as I can,
Lying on my bed as I am,
In that scream is a twisted mass of emotions;
failures, successes, joys, pains, frustrations…
Life truly has been “like a box of chocolates”
Filled with untold surprises
As the scream gets louder and longer,
I begin to feel lighter, in my heart and in my spirit,
Gradually, it dies away
I unclench my fists, open my eyes,
I say “Thank you, Jesus”,
Say my prayers,
Smile and get out of bed,
A beautiful day begins.
