Happy Thoughts

My thoughts are too realistic
What is needed is a focus on hope
More than the tragedy

It’s been acknowledged over and over
Who can forget?
But it’s time to move forward

The problem is all my addictions keep the pain at bay
And when I try to overcome them
I hurt

No soothing escapisms to comfort
The disappointment eats at me – gnaws

Time to look up
Focus on the One who loves me
Escape to Him for a change

Love will soothe
Forgiveness will comfort
Grace will cover

I’m ok to grieve
I can let myself feel
I’m not alone in my pain

Burns last for this lifetime
But not the next
No scars there

Wholeness awaits
