Feeling like the newness of change
Is making my insides strange
Donít know what to say
To cast the inner demons away

Wanting respite
From my anxiety
Desiring flight
But too cowardly to flee

Seeking more
Afraid to seek the light
Hoping to restore
What inside that isnít right

Asking for help
Yet cringing from a helping hand
Not meaning to yelp
While landing in quicksand

Knocked down by past choices
Iíve climbed out of the ditch before
Again I am hearing those harsh voices
I cling to the need of a personal savior

How to be found
Admitting my loss
Casting my weapons on the ground
What I gain is from the cross

I read this quite a few times and I like it more everytime I read it. The meaning as I read it moves me - the structure and beat is a bit disjointed for me. The extended lines in the 1st ands 5th stanza have a nice bounce. The brevity of 2 and 3 reads as another poem. The last stanza for content is wonderful. Maybe you could alternate the short versed stanzas and the longer versed stanzas that would create a nice lyrical feel. I think this could be great poem maybe look at it again. Just my humble thoughts to a fine poet. I am a fan.
