balance

i am lost in a river

love, pain, fear, and happiness

pours through my soul

faith the size of a mustard seed;

drowning within the walls that surround me;

i see god in between each brushstroke

painting my story

the empty canvas calls out

he lets me know

that he gave life

and free will

so i could go

beyond the brushstrokes

to try to capture

these moments
