A merry go-round
Shiny stallions, gleaming hope
Dipping down on their fake rope
Then the dizzy
Confusion, the busy
An explosion looming
Music, a melody
Truth or a parody?
My eyes fall closed
His wings gently shielding
To whom I belong
Up from my painted toes sings a glory song
Even when our feelings change, we have the same God. Some of us who are sensitive to others’ pain, our feelings change many times in the stretch of a day. I am thankful for Jesus, who is my anchor. Belonging to Him is the hope and the rope that steadies me. Though I take antidepressants, I lean into Jesus more when depression starts to show itself.
I am uncertain if I ever will be able to stop antidepressants.
For now, this day, my safety is primarily due to both Jesus and the medicine. My family and friends are important, too.
