No clear footway through the rubble, everything built up has been burnt down

Hopes, plans, expectations, pride, all obliterated by the fire of unfortunate circumstances

The city of hope is now smokes and smoldering ashes

Why me, why me, I asked? If not you, then who endless silence answered.


Rats of discouragement gnawing away at my peace

Depression mocking my efforts to restore order to disorderliness

How does one get back the lost legacy when the pathways of hope have been erased

All that is left is slammed doors, rejected applications and cancelled appointments.


In comes “Jobs friends”, to whom I immediately cried for help

You are a sinning tactless and clueless man their brutal response

I lack the courage of a David I tried to explain (Stone-walled)

This is my first lion and bear and they have me on the floor mauled and brutalized. (Ignored).


Help me dear Savior, the Sapiens have failed me

Follow THE WAY, He said

That’s where I am at now

Comfy and progressing in The LIGHT.


That’s why I sing always of His goodness

Dance with might in His presence

For when I looked for everyone, I found no one

He saved me when everyone stopped caring.


To read another proestry Peppery bowls and watery eyes

Several years back after I lost my job. I went through hell but only God, my family and a few just fellows stood by me. Most people I relied on dumped me as fast as one dumps hot coals. If you are in a “war” right now or left cold and lonely by circumstances of life or people, focus on God alone, He won’t fail you.

Talk to me, somebody.
