Battles Rage



Should I this lowly man not so brave fall now into a silent wonder.

For I watch from a distance as if from the sidelines of some supernatural game.

Forces unseen oppress; forces unseen relieve; one thousand still are left the questions to ponder.

Battles rage furious in these dimensions unknown; left now am I to wonderment alone.


For I write these words on electronic sheets; I write of joy; I write of life so bleak.

In reverent prayer I have called on His name; I’ve seen many signs, yet still much is the same.

I will never surrender without a fight; never should I submit wholly to the darkest night.

I will at all cost just simply believe; even though at times the reason I cannot perceive.


I am at times like a little sheep who has wandered deep into the forest astray.

I am surrounded by reaching branches; and canopies thick blocking the light of day.

I cry out only to hear myself weeping alone with no shelter; no comfort; no home.

Inwards voices scream it’s the end of time, and even more proclaim she will live and not die.


Battles still rage in the silence of my day.

No matter; no difference Love will make the way.

You show amazing strength here, strength given only by God - well done. Keep battling on; you are not alone.

Allen, this is what it takes in life to get through the trials and tribulations of life itself. "I will never surrender without a fight, never should I submit wholly to the darkest night. I will at all cost just simply believe, even though at times the reason I cannot perceive." These lines says so much...your faith is in tack and God knows you're being do not walk alone for He is with you. Awake "Little Sheep" for darkness will bring light to your heart. This is beautiful but oh so sad.
