Psalms 62 and Poetry


When I pursue material things I am afraid

Euphoria is mixed with terror and alarm

The high’s that I chase are short lasting

They will surely amount to nothing in the end


Greed and satisfaction are my downfall

They tarnish my sanctitude

It’s time I listened to my heart once more

And allow the righteousness to circulate



My soul finds rest in God alone

My salvation comes from Him

He alone is my rock and my salvation

He is my fortress, I will never be shaken


Though I am threatened by madness

I will seek truth and the Holy Spirit

When I fall into darkness

I know the Lord will be by my side


I pray for forgiveness of my sins

I ask for protection from the evildoer

My heart goes out to the downtrodden

And I give thanks that I am alive
