When I wrote this poem I was feeling trapped by the world, led astray and far away from God. I desperately needed God to stir up my spirit within me so that I could feel His glorious presence in my life. Sometimes the world seems to close in all around us and it is so hard to feel God in our lives. We get so busy we lose track of our first love, God. I like the image I put with this poem because it portrays my feelings at the time of the poem. God has used poetry as such a gift of healing in my life as well as a time of renewal and restoration of my relationship with Him. I thank God that He is in my life and allows me to vent in this way.
