I Cried Today
I cried today.
Tears of pain.
Not because I wanted to,
But I was overwhelmed.
Like a fountain they burst forth
Blinding me, overcoming me.
I could not help it.
I felt the anguish
Erupting from deep within.
It was like everything pouring out of me,
Yet still so such hurt inside.
For so long I’ve tried to be brave,
To furnish a smile
When my world’s upside down.
To appear confident when I’m lost.
Won’t dare let anyone see me fall,
‘Cause I know I’m strong
And no one must think otherwise.
But sometimes the slightest wind
Can sway the mightiest tree,
And amidst the storm we’re all vulnerable.
So I cried today,
Because I’m human.
And life can sometimes
Bring us to our knees
In agony, in submission, in prayer.
Yes, I cried today
Wailing out His name,
I cried, “Father!”
