Trapped by Chaos

Rushing, swirling, drowning

thoughts in my head

Won't stop.

Alone and forsaken.

No one cares.

Not even God.

Trapped by insecurities

That own me.

Chaos and no rest define my life.

Prisoner in my house,

it is not a home.

Within these walls only

Am I safe?

Neighbors seek to destroy me,

Waiting for me to sleep.

Doors won't bar them.

They ransack and take

What they want.

No respect or love.

What am I living for?

Where did my Father go?

Very interesting. You wonder if the person feels inner chaos which makes him or her stay indoors, or if he is living at a war zone. Either way, the fear is genuine.

The Lord said he would not fail us or forsake us, and Paul wrote ( 2 Timothy 1:7) "For God hath not given us a spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind."

The lines in this poem which say "No one cares. Not even God" are statements of abandonment and fear. We are all "works in progress." Climb back on the bicycle of life and learn to ride it. Michael Jordan didn't give up learning to shoot baskets just because he missed the first one.

Grand, Thanks for reading. It is about a person who has inner chaos that makes them stay indoors. They feel genuine fear. Perspycacious, I appreciate the verses. You are so right. There are times when a person, even a Christian, can feel abandoned and alone. Jesus did when he was dying for us on the cross. But, we keep living, knowing our God is in control and he has a plan at work that we may not be able to see. I appreciate you so much for reading and for the encouraging words.

I've been there. God is right there with us in the midst of our insecurities. The challenge is to get those thoughts to focus on Him.

I have felt this way before and it has led me to a better understanding of how to overcome my fears and to trust God through the situation. Wonderful poem and so inspirational.
