The Hardest Part


the hardest part, at least for me


is not the endless sadness

looming dusk-like over noon-bright

shadowing the joy of every delight


is not the absent friendships

those failing human touches

that gives you no-one to care


is not the foolish mind-set

that wants to always remember

where what is fails as should be


is not these dark walls I build

to keep out what will cause pain

if let come too close to me


my God is greater than all these

His pull up-ward outdoes their pull down-ward

He is my steadfast foundation

He is the sole reason I still live




the hardest part, at least for me


is knowing I cannot trust my thoughts

is knowing my mind could betray me

is knowing I cannot know if what is, is


is being forever in this uncertain fog
