Bringing Me Back

A low feeling of the same thought again,
I can make a new choice, but when?
I could think I’m spiritual & pure,
Yet what if I don’t know & I’m not sure,
I really don’t know what to do,
A repeated pattern I go through,
Bringing me back to where I started,
As hope for better days has departed,
Is there still time to turn this around?
A subtle glimpse of possibilities found,
How can I maintain forward progress?
If this is a lesson or one of life’s tests,
I’ll pray for authentic words to write,
I’ll try to be gentle with myself tonight.
