Five Minute Friday: My Steady, A Poem

 

girldancingsunpic

Steady is even, unextreme

Crawling out of bitterness screaming

Dragging through depression, you seem

Half-dead, life out-of-sync, like in a dream

Someone dies, and steady is turned upside down

Everything you thought, felt and held onto

Gone, evaporated, never to retrieve or own

Give me a steady firm ground in faith

Unshaken, unstirred by storms and the wait

On His feet I stand, a girl dancing with her dad

Abide, realize steady lives inside

Thank you for visiting!  Each Friday, I will write for 5 minutes on the given word. Today’s word is steady. If you wonder about writing, this is a great way to start. A small yet daring step. Here is the link to follow if you want to join:

  1. Julie, beautiful words and truths here today! I love this word picture:
    On His feet I stand,
    a girl dancing with her dad
    Abide, realize steady lives inside

    When we dance with our Daddy, we can be steady because He is always holding us and guiding us. Even through life’s horrible.
