Freak

I'm a control freak
Pandemic has me paranoid
Being truthful
Because I'm miserable
Optimism is acceptance
In this moment
Acceptance
That freedom
Comes when
Expectations shatter
I want you
To know
That I've known
For seven weeks
That I had
To write this
Am I ready
To engage
With the public
I'm never ready
God is

  1. Yes we are never ready but relying on Him is all we need.

  2. It's a weird time and we certainly don't have much control over anything at the moment. I liked the rhythm of this piece.

  4. I find many times I feel the fear mounting and then I hand it over to God, he knows what to do. This was raw, heartfelt and lovely, soul baring.

  7. I want to get back to normal too, but I am also scared. It is scary just to go to the grocery store. Stay strong.

  12. this is hard for those that need to be in control, not knowing how things will be but maybe a few weeks ahead is rough, then again there are those that are opening now and aren't sure.

  13. These words are pretty relatable right now. Now sure how we're going to transition from this new life back to the old, but I'm ready for it!

  15. The only certainty in all this is that God has not been taken by surprise, and that He is in control. I am not denying that it is an uncertain and scary time, but that underlying certainty of God does help
    Stay safe

  20. I'd love a bit of normal right now, but God's timing is best.

  22. We're never in control at the best of times, but it certainly is more obvious during times like these.

  24. You aren't paranoid. You are wise. The public isn't always so wise, at least not where I live. Too many people with no masks or distancing. I suppose if one has very few cases in their county it might be easier to step out but I, for one, have no intentions of doing so for quite sometime. Don't beat yourself up about being paranoid. You're not. You're smart to be concerned.

  25. I'm kind of there also. Not because of the virus but because i love silence.
