Make Life Shine (Poem)

Count the ways
Count the words

Count the wrongs
Count the times

Oh how I count the things that gave my life a little less shine

The words I said but didn’t mean
The words I meant but never said

The times I fell and fell again
Then got back up
Made no amends

The times I trembled on the floor
Begged God to save me
I’d sin no more

I only prayed in times of want
I never asked
I only thought

Now I’m a haunt in my own mind
An endless maze of thorns and briar

I beg and pray for gratitude
The little things that make me move

The sun that sets across the sky
The little things that make life shine
