Taking Control

"Life has spiraled out of control
You can't grasp it for a second
You don't know what else to do
but give up.

Time to take control
Get life organized
One thing at a time
One step at a time."

Life Crashes Down

"Everything is going wrong
You don't know why
Life is crashing down
There is no cover

Life crashes down
Slowly and then quickly

Let it fall
Wait till the storms calm
Then pick up the pieces
and continue on…"

Meditation for Stress

"Meditation is a sanctuary
Close your eyes and take yourself somewhere free
Free from chaos
Free from worry

Take a deep breath
Open your eyes
To a whole new place."

Stress has Won

"Life is out of control
Can't catch my breath
Want to do so much
But can't seem to do anything

Some days I feel defeated
No energy to really care

Stress has beat me
I am the loser."

Feeling Empowered

"Things get crazy
Out of control

I can take it
I can survive
I will get up
Brush myself off
To tackle whatever comes my way…"

Faith Leads the Way

"Life isn't always simple
It's what makes it fun

I have faith that I can do anything
With my Lord

He will show me the way
He will pick me up when I fall

With Him and I, we can do it all."

Worry's Prisoner

"It won't let me go
It has me behind it's bars

I am afraid
I am scared

I try to forget
I try to ignore
but I am stuck

One day I will be free
Free from this worrier's prison."

Taking a Break

"The world is spinning around you
Things are happening
People are living

You don't seem to notice
You don't see

You're buried in business
and chaos.
Push back the work
Open your eyes
See what's around you
and breathe."
