A poem about feeling down.
"Feeling Rotten" by Justin Chopin
Feeling Rotten

I'm feeling very rotten.

Right down to my heart.

Dwelling on meaningless memories that should be long forgotten.

I'm tearing my senses of God-given joy apart.

I'm drowning in my anxieties, sorrows ever-present in my sighs.

I need a Divine Savior to show me His Favor, a kind of comfort
To relieve me and stop tears from falling down from my eyes.

So Jesus, I call out to You now knowing You hear my lamentations.

I beg of You, my Lord, to alleviate me from these obsessive thoughts of frustration.

Feelings seeking to make me useless stagnating me into pits of depression and despair.

I'm tired of all of this stupid self-pity Father,
I am so tired of being distraught by all of these trivial cares.

Worries burning me with guilt and shame.
I desire You, God. Please work inside of me.

Take away all of these blistering burdens and all of these pains.
Renew me my Redeemer and set me free.

Transform this troubled soul into the man of God that You desire me to be.

Author Notes
Really a bit too melodramatic . Basically it's just a plea to God to help me from wasting my time feeling so sorry for myself to be the man that Jesus wants me to be unchained by the guilt and the shame of my old mistakes. For there's no condemnation in Christ only victory.
Pays one point and 2 member cents.
