Circle of One

Posted on

I’m living in the shadow of yesterday

With dreams I had for tomorrow

But the plans are shattered more each day

As I try to hide the sorrow.

*

When life is so out of focus

And my feelings have all grown numb

I think there must be more to life than this…

I’ve become a circle of one.

 *

Decisions are hard to come by

There’s no trust even in myself.

Yet there’s a will to survive inside us all –

That may be all of “me” that’s left.

*

But whatever there is within me

I must turn it into something more.

I can’t live my life for others now

And they can’t see the world from my shore.

*

We all have our own life’s story to tell

And not one is worse than the other.

But there must be common ground somewhere

And a balm to ease the struggle.

*

Take the good you see in me

And learn from it if you will.

But when you observe the wrong I do

I hope you can accept me still.

*

I don’t anchor my soul on anyone else

I want no one’s weight on me.

So I leave my burdens at the foot of the Cross

And Jesus sets me free.
