      Hi everyone!

      I haven’t been around for a long time… High school and stuff 🙂 It’s a poem I wrote today. It’s a rewriting of something I wrote earlier today, while and after a really hard time. I hope it will encourage, help, or just make you smile 🙂

      As always, I’m totally open to any kind of criticism, whether grammatical or artistic 🙂

       

      Alone in the night of darkness

       

      I am guarding alone in the night of darkness,

      And the darkness is so thick:

      Clouds are covering the moon,

      And there is no sign for the stars.

       

      But there is one sparkling star

      And standing between me and my death.

      And in my heart, there is still hope

      As long as my eyes are looking to the Lord.

       

      My road shall not be lost in the darkness

      For even now, I am not alone.

      The north star will shine alone,

      He will not forget me, His son.

       

      I am guarding alone in the night of darkness

      And my eyelids are so heavy!…

      I fear, O my God,

      That I shall fall asleep in front of my enemies…

       

      O Father, give me Your strength

      So I may think only about You, please!

      Protect me in this battle…

      I need You now!

       

      A rain of arrows falls at me,

      I fall and stand up and stumble again,

      I hurt, It’s hard for me, God,

      I am surrendering to the sins…

       

      I am not alone in the night of darkness

      And the horizon is not so dark,

      And the sun is rising in the east:

      My enemies are running away in terror!

       

      You have given me rest,

      And have not ignored my voice.

      You are my Father and my God,

      You have carried away my sins!

       

      O my Lord, heal my heart

      And let Your love be in me.

      I will trust You in the heart of trouble,

      And will not fear, even in the valley of the shadow of death!

      You don't need to see the wind itself in order to hear the rustling leaves.

        Why is surviving important? Would you not rather die for the truth?
