A confused heart.

Tangled in a web of emotion

My heart drowns in the turbulent ocean 

Of confusing thoughts and feelings

Of contradictory desires and meanings

O that I could return to simplicity

O that I could relinquish my iniquity

Of doubting instead of trusting

Of wavering instead of persisting

Of fighting instead of yielding

Lord, set me free from the mire of despair

Lord, lift me out of this dark lair

Then I will see Your light once more

And praise You Lord like times before

This is a guest piece by Anna Hawkes Cabral.
