There is a war outside, a real war.
I look away, I turn away
I might still be in it, but I don’t want it to be in me.
I might be part of it; but I don’t want it to be a part of me.
In me there is a space and a possibility.
A person, a hope, a peace,
I turn to the Lord because I need Him.
I turn to Him because he is the source of all that is good.
I do not know what I am doing and I expect I will do everything wrong.
I do not trust in myself. I am helpless.
But I have faith in the Lord.
I am a person who is vulnerable to despair.
I am a person who needs real love.
