When You Really Feel Restless  Inside…

When You Feel Empty Inside …

When You Feel You Are Free …

When You Feel Lonely … 

When You Feel Stressed Out  …

When You Feel So Frustrated …

When You Find It Hard to Make Ends Meet …

When You Feel It is Time To Live With Your Boyfriend/Girlfriend …

When You Feel You Deserve Happiness so you enjoy life to the fullest…

When You Feel Your Family Does Not Share Your Values Anymore …

When You Feel Messed Up Inside …

Not enough time to process what you are going through.

Instead of facing the hard truth about yourself and your life, you attempt to avoid facing yourself.

You avoid the silence.

You turn on the radio.

You play around with your cellphone.

And you do the same thing over and over again the next day or next week.

Life is too boring.

I just feel too messed up.

I like more excitement, but I do not want to do things by myself.

I want to go to an amusement park or the movie theater with people I like, who adore me.

I want to go spend dinner with people who will listen to me.

I want to forget that I am lonely.

I want to forget that sometimes life is disturbing.

I need a trash can to vent out my concerns.

I need someone that will adore me no matter what I do even if I messed up.

I want someone to accept me.

I want someone to cheer me up and encourage me.

I want to make a difference in my partner’s life because I love him/her.

My partner is the only one who understands me.

Where do I go from here?

I am tired of being alone at night.

I want to share my living expenses with someone I care about.

I hate coming home to a house which is not mine.

I want to have a home I can call mine.

I want to share my life with someone – both good and bad times.

I am tired of being alone.

I am tired.

I am.  

This is a free-verse poem dedicated to those who struggle to find  peace.  Each line is a lament of an exhausted human being about their daily life.  In the end the poem ends with “I AM” who is God.  In all of our distress, the bottom line is our relationship with God.  God (I AM) is opposite of us ( I am) or our individualistic tendencies.  We can only do so much.  Our actions are limited.  However, the great  “I AM” can do all impossible things and make things new.
