In Between

Born again Christian, learning to live the life God wants for me. Sharing my life experiences and lessons.

Stuck in the middle

Stuck in the middle

Darkness was my home

I never knew anything different

I didn’t even know it was dark

Until I saw the light

I wanted to run toward it

But I was nervous

I was afraid

It was unfamiliar

But so inviting

The light was strong

It shone into to my darkness

I was alive... for once

Like a magnet, I was pulled

But some part of me resisted

And so I stood there... stuck

Stuck between

The familiar and the unfamiliar

The old and the new

What I was and what I could be

And though I was caught in the middle

It was always my choice to move

Romans 14:8 For whether we live, we live unto the Lord; and whether we die, we die unto the Lord: whether we live therefore, or die, we are the Lord's.

I definitely agree. Thanks, Mark.

Anything unfamiliar feels scary, I guess. Often times, its good to follow your intuition instead of your head. Thoughtful poem.
