The Water is Rising

-Copyright 2017 Diana Rasmussen

riding the waves of anxiety, the flood rushes in my heart and mind
I wish this wasn’t real because the truth is hard to take
never thought it would be this bad, should have left when I had the chance
the water is rising, the water is rising

there are heroes born of tragedy, working together to show the love
my reality is life with boats floating down the streets
mighty men and women rising up, saving strangers one by one
the water is rising, the water is rising

when they fianlly come for me, I can’t believe I am still alive,
staying up in the second story as my life floats by
I’m grateful for one more breath, in the hurricane that changed my life
the water is rising, the water is rising

this isnt’ the end of my story
the water is rising, the water is rising
this isn’t the end of my story
the water is rising, the water is rising

Count your Rainbows

Count your rainbows
Instead of your storms
Count your blessings
Instead of the thorns

The Lord your God in your midst,
The Mighty One, will save;
He will rejoice over you with gladness,
He will quiet you with His love,
He will rejoice over you with singing.
Zephaniah 3:17
New King James Version (NKJV)

Ghosts From a Dream

I redid this poem today.  More wrestling with words and feelings.

Ghosts From A Dream

~Copyright 2013 Diana Rasmussen~

Ghosts from a dream
Blood curdling screams

Old Buried feelings
holding hidden meanings

Burial chambers
Echoing danger

Negative energy
Smiling cleverly

Up out of the grave
Trying to enslave

Contemptuous jeers
Whispered in my ears

Accusing echoes
Tormenting my soul

Secrets that covered
Buried and smothered

Feels out of control
Crazy thoughts GO

Drag them out of night
into the daylight

Darkness cannot fight
When exposed to Light

Shriveled old schemes
Ghosts from a dream

 In the beginning [before all time] was the Word (Christ), and the Word was with God, and the Word was God Himself.

He was present originally with God.

All things were made and came into existence through Him; and without Him was not even one thing made that has come into being.
In Him was Life, and the Life was the Light of men.

And the Light shines on in the darkness, for the darkness has never overpowered it [put it out or absorbed it or appropriated it, and is unreceptive to it].  ( John 1:1-5 AMP)

Here is the First version of Ghosts From A Dream,  back in August:
