Wither Can You Flee?

Updated on November 30, 2012

When the day is long ...

and it hurts to try

Whither can you flee?

Do you drink for relief?

Or pick at that pie?

Instead of calling me?

When you’re weary and sad

and feel lost at the core

do you call your doctor

to prescribe more?

Do you hide under cover and watch TV

when all you have to do is call on me?

When you’ve been slandered

or lied to, and your hearts been betrayed

and the pain is so much

that you can’t forget

when tragedy befalls

and you want to blame

when the world falls a part

will you know my name?

Will you call on me?

Do you remember me?

There is a reason for everything!

I promised you from the beginning …

And I promise you now

it is all … alright

I am always with you

can’t you see?

When it all falls a part

wither can you flee?

You can do what you will

but it’s still not me

you know in your heart

when you allow me near

I’m always with you

hoping you’ll hear

before you go into that form of relief

will you just be still

and remember to seek?

I have always been your refuge

And I will always be

when you need real help

wither can you flee?

Will you flee to me?

      Well done and interesting. Quite different from the first poem I read....but it is good to have many ears to listen and many voices with which to speak.
