Rise Again

In this world full of hopes and dreams.
People fail but they rise up again.
When you look their way you’ll be amazed.
When you look my way you’ll be disgraced.
I fall down. On my knees.
Nothing helps. Not even just breathe.
I see myself drowning out.
Life just stinks. I’m fed up with it all.
Can’t see anything good about me.
Nothing strong, I’m just made of broken glass.
It takes one to look deep in my eyes
To show me all the truth and the lies.
I might be a mess but there’s nothing to stress.
I’ve made it through the darkest storms
Not a lot have been through.
I’ve fallen apart but my heart still beats.
Death hasn’t taken my life.
Devil hasn’t gotten my soul.
I may be chained to images that haunt me.
But I know I’ll get through the night.
One day in time I will stand like a rock.
That’s my promise to me.
And no one, not even you could steal that away.
For now I might be walking on the edge of a broken glass.
I might be flying with damaged wings.
Falling on the cement, bleeding tears of pain.
And right now may seem like tomorrow may never happen.
But the clock is still ticking and my heart is still beating.
I’m not alright but I will be someday okay.
In this world full of hopes and dreams.
People fail but they rise up again.


About Lisa's Blog

Hi, I'm Lisa. I recently graduated from Gannon University with a Bachelors degree in Liberal Arts. For the past 3 months I have been looking for a job. My life has been boring. I'm trying to find something to amuse it. I started going to the gym to better my health and lift 50lbs. There's a blog idea! I will be 24 in October. I'm thinking about reading the Bible and having my own Busy Person's Retreat. Gannon offers BPR once each semester. Basically, you spend 30mins with God and 30mins with a Spiritual Director. My personal BPR will be 30mins with God reading a verse from the Bible or listening to a song and journaling. I love being creative. I've been writing poetry since I was in 4th grade. I'm interested in lyric writing but don't think I'm a great lyricist. I played Clarinet in middle school and high school. I got my first guitar a week before I turned 16. Took a year of lessons then stopped. Volunteering at church for Vacation Bible School was my life! I loved it! This year I will be volunteering for Religious Education. I have no idea what I will be doing there. I'm nervous but at the same time excited! I don't know what I want to be or do. I don't have any future plans. My mind gets empty when I think of my future. I really don't think about it much. I stay focused on the hear and now. I love baking brownies, cooking ramen noodle soup and velveeta. I know how to knit only one way. I one time made 6 scarfs in a month for my housemates at college. I have no idea how to end this. So, I will end it this way. If you have any questions or comments please feel free to ask.
