U is for Underneath

I'm feeling a little poetic today. The weather is wonderfully dreary and dark, which generally leads to rather interesting writing, so this week, there is no long and rambly post.

Just a poem, that might make you think.

Underneath

Underneath, I've fallen down
Fading faster
Tryin' to drown
Pull me under
Let me go
Let the river
Let it flow

Underneath, I'm left behind
Forgotten only,
One of a kind
Taking over,
Let me be,
Let the river,
Flowing free

Underneath, I'm going down
Not a word,
No, not a sound
I'm so lost
And so alone
Let the river
Take me home

Underneath, I"m letting go
Giving in to
All I know
Left for darkness
Left for good
Let the river
Like it should

Underneath, I"m just a child,
A little helpless
A little wild,
I'm crying out, please
Don't let me go
Don't let the river
Take control

On the surface,
I've got it all
Picture perfect, perfect walls
The river's coming
To take away
If I let it,
I'm gone today

Underneath, I"m falling down
Swamped and tangled
I'm gonna drown
Breathing's over
Living too
Lord, take me under
Make me new

Underneath I'm,
Just like you
Imperfect Issues,
Trust in His truth
Scared and cold
I am no more
Let the river
Lay me at His door

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you enjoyed the read. I generally don't post my poetry, but this one seems to fit for today and of course, the letter matches for this week. ^_^

Cheers!

Meaningful on so many different levels. We feel overwhelmed and drowning, but that's just where we need to be to die to ourselves and live in Christ. Beautiful.

Try to "go with the flow"!
