Breaking Free

I feel as if I'm stuck in a cage, knowing my potential I bring myself to burst out in rage, this stage of trials is rough, as I lay under the rubble it is tough to see light, in spurts I try to raise with all my might but through the dust it's hard to see what is right, so I go forth waving through the mists, standing on the defensive I look with my fists, the fog deepens and the fear of failure starts to creep in, falling back under the shadows I collapse again, I cry out "When will this end!!", when will I break free from this shameful sin..., I try and I try but why do I live only to cry. What am I doing wrong, why does my life always sing a sad, sad song, I long for righteousness and a life of bliss, A place where I can be a guide to everyone in this world of nothingness, This world and what it's filled with, the riches and selfish gain, exclaiming, you will find your happiness in fame, I know this is not true nor what I desire but my life's transpired for the want to be admired, looked upon to lead but to what they ask to Jesus indeed! The only truth that I find happiness in is Jesus Christ, displaying to all he is where you will find your life, your journey to what fulfills the fight, This battle in ourselves is only a spiritual war, striving to find what your living for, yearning to know what is it that I have in store, what will my life bring? All I can say is in God you will find everything, Go forth in peace knowing all is in the hands of God, He will be to us and do as he must, in him I will give all my trust, Knowing someday my cage will bust, just in time, in Gods time, Until that day I'll be fine, Yes continuing with a fathers love so divine, I'll walk this narrow line; follow the broken road which for me he has sown. I'll patiently wait for Jesus to come down from his throne or until the day he takes me home, and for now I will speak only to all to make his Love known.
