Wasted

Another day that feels

Wasted.

As I lie awake, heart racing,
Trying to put my pieces back together
So I don’t feel

Broken.

I fell today
For the lies of another empty song.

I lost today
In the front lines of my mind.

My body is tired,
Ravaged by distress.

My soul is tired,
Weighed down by memories
That take me to melancholy lane.

All the things I’ve wanted to do,
But never could

Wasted.

I can see the dream stealers,
Creeping in the middle of the night.
Making me forget why
I Chose to move forward.

You say Your yoke is easy
But this burden I have has tied me

Down.

I can’t get up and face today–
Not in my own strength.

I know that with You I’m anything but

Hopeless.

So I’ll surrender to
The only Love
That gives without taking.

The only peace
That leaves no room for fear.

Only this way can I rise
And feel my brokeness,
Being mended by Your strong hands,
So I can glisten in the sun.

Only this way can I gain
What the enemy took away.

Only this way can I take today,
And make it beautiful.

Because of You
No tear
No shout
No fear
No joy
No love is

Wasted.

  1. God Bless You Emily! You are so talented and such an inspiration 💖

  2. I love this so much! The honesty, the sincerity, the rhymes, the words- all come together to form perfection! I definitely connected to this. If this were a book in the Bible, it would definitely be the Psalms. Proud of you Emily! xx

    • Thank you so much M! I’ve been working on writing more honestly–with the Psalms as inspiration actually. It really makes me feel so much better and connected to God when I pour my heart out. God bless you ❤

  3. Love you precious girl, you are so gifted and blessed!
