Save me from myself
by Chad Gurley

Save me from myself
as old depression
seeks me out

Instead of being in the now
he sneaks back
to yesteryear

Lonesome sighs at lack of
sightly accomplishment
hoped for

dreamed of

The Father reminds me
“All in good time”
His time

Frowning childishly
impatient in now
selfishly I want

He giggles tousling my hair
waves a smile
from my frown

Lighten up.
