I know it’s been a while since I’ve come out to play –
Emotional turmoil it has been these past days.
The highs and lows, being constantly wound –
Light and darkness, did surround.
Love was gained and loved ones were lost –
Friendships were strengthened where others were tossed.
Cheats to liars, twisted words that were said –
Lived with the screaming that was all through my head.
Strained and stressed for many a day –
Playtime became painful in so many ways.
For a little over a month the words would not come out –
Thoughts turned to dust an irrefutable drought.
With God’s help, I pushed through the screen –
Today is the day, the fog has lifted from me.
So here I am, changed and renewed –
Back to the proverbial sandbox to come play with you.
