Traceable Tears

The tracks of my tears are so easy to trace. Life search for some sunshine, hope my life’s not a waste. They say trouble won’t last always. I think I believe that…most days. Still looking for the turn around but anyways….

Insurmountable circumstance, working hard for a second chance but knocked down again before I can begin. Just when I put one foot in front of the other, life struck by lightening, followed by thunder. I thought lightening never struck twice in the same place…but the truth is just a slap in the face! For redemption I still chase.

Scrambled eggs in their shells that everyone walks on. Conclusions foregone, pathologies passed on. But bygones will be bygones! Doesn’t matter where it started, compassion departed. Attempts at understanding disregarded.

Looking to blaze a brand new trail. Workin to make peace with that ship that took sail. They say where there’s a will there’s a way but tell me how can I have peace for today, because honestly, it seems so very far away!

These traceable tears, they lead to my heart ache, my heart breaks….is my life a mistake? Sometimes I feel like it’s too much to take! But to God be the glory, it’s not the end of my story, there’s brighter days for me to enjoy, the tears that I’ve cried WILL lead to my joy.
