I feel alive

Tragedy holds no sway on me,
For as long as there’s breath in me,
Hordes may congregate at the gates,
But decimation for them awaits,
For greatness is my destiny,
Built with godly ability,
I fear nothing that comes to cause pain,
For already I have conquered and slain.

When they come I breathe deep,
And battle steep,
I take the blows,
And return them as the wind billows,
I cheat death again and again,
I fight through sorrow and pain,
And when done I breath out loud,
Look to the heavens and feel alive!

Beautiful day

The sun is out and the birds are singing,
Timbered voices and church bells ringing,
My heart beats with gladness,
The rhythm and tune together seamless,
The hearts around me beat the same,
We sing the song both strong and tame,
I look up to the sky and all I can say,
Is that it’s a beautiful day.

The poem of pain

To tell a truth and not a lie,
Is to say each day I pray to die,
The man in me can take no more,
For I am plagued greater than before,
My cries to heaven return unheard,
My burdens remain unshared,
For all the love he has as Lord,
To me none can he afford.

The rising sun is like a stake to me,
A reminder of my enemies' hold over me,
The setting sun is but a moment of peace,
Just a moment as we return to this,
Every thought I hold brings me pain,
A reminder that I am but a bloodied stain,
I dare not try any more,
For as I do the hurt is greater than before.

I dare not try to take my life,
For in that I may fail as I have in life,
I pray that God does it for me,
Or is that mercy too good for me,
Am I so evil that he may hate me so,
For he loved me once, a while ago,
Today living each day is my pain,
I fear I cannot rise another day again.

Today

Today is the day,
That shall be better than yesterday,
Today is the day,
My sorrow washes away,
It is the day I step out of my shell,
And become the person I know so well,
It’s the day I embrace life as I should,
The day I become all I could.

Today is that day,
That shall be better than yesterday,
Today is the day,
That shall be better than any other day,
Any other day past, that is,
For tomorrow shall still be better than this,
Today is the day that I begin,
Today is that day that I win.

Alive

It’s an amazing feeling to hold,
To feel beyond the cold.
To feel the sun rising every day,
No matter what life throws your way,
To know that beyond the storm lies a rainbow
That beyond the clouds the sun will always glow,
For the first time I know I will thrive,
For the first time, I feel alive.

I feel like nothing can knock me down,
Like my dreams thrive and my worries drown,
Like God is fighting on my side,
And I have no reason to whimper or hide.
I feel like I can take on the world
Like a Champion worthy of gold,
I feel a glow in every night,
I feel a thirst for the fight.

I can do things I never thought I could,
I now take the place I always knew I should,
I now rise from the ashes of my strife,
Blessed with a new lease of life,
I see a future and not a past,
I see glory at long last,
Alive, alive, oh so alive,
I have never felt so alive.
