Like Honey Ingested when I haven’t eaten in days,
I feel my Energy Replenished when I offer Praise!
Like Cooling Water on my tongue when trapped in desert haze,
Your Presence is The Essence of my Recovery Phase!
Not always energized by what I encounter in life,
Sometimes it’s no surprise that I fall and flounder through strife!
My Eyes Can Fool Me, so it seems There’s a Lie That’s Implied,
So, it’s Discernment I Rely On to Keep Me Aligned!
Depression’s Aggression Begets the Cessation of Hope,
Creating impressions that Heaven’s too steep of a slope!
If I Reflect back on the darkness of life when I grope,
Through Valleys of Shadows of Death, it’ll narrow my scope!
I need to See Clearly to Recognize Rejuvenation,
So, I Don’t Miss the Formation of my Emancipation!
My Interpretation of Temptation and Tribulation,
Is Application of His Greatness through Inhabitation!
