I’m Asleep

I’m Asleep
by: Whitney Linck

I’m asleep,
darkness all around.
Sweeping me off my feet,
on rocky ground.

I’m asleep.
The battle is inside of my head.
Telling me I’m not loved,
telling me I’m dead.

I’m asleep,
a familiar place.
It comes when I’m running,
away from Your grace.

I’m asleep,
I have seen Your ways.
Easily forgotten,
easily erased.

I’m asleep,
no longer a heart of joy.
Darkness sinks in,
darkness destroys.

I’m asleep,
pain all around.
Innocence taken,
buried in the ground.

It’s time for me to wake up.
I’m ready to give it all I’ve got.
I can no longer battle my flesh.
I can no longer try to do it all myself.
For You have been with me,
even in my sleep.
For You have always Loved me.

It’s time to wake up.
