Jesus, I’m Scared When I Wake Up

I do not know why I feel dread when I awaken

like something wrong is going to happen

Maybe I feel like I am not right with you, Jesus

Did I ask for forgiveness for the wrongs of yesterday

Christianity is messy for me at times

I have habits I am trying to break

I hold resentments toward others

I try to forgive them

but their faces flash before me

Help me feel normal when I awaken

without waking up to fear

Let me feel I am clean and right with you

Jesus, I don’t want to be

what you don’t want me to be

Help me, please

As a teen, wanted to live from writing poetry. Wrote several books, selling nationally. Hung out with readers throughout the United States. My writing has been on back burner. Now dusting off my desk and have my pen in hand. Hope you enjoy some of what I write.
