I’m Fine

I keep saying
I’m fine
But, I’m not-
Not really
 
What am I, then?
Sad and anxious
Angry and confused
Wrapped up in one bundle
 
The flow of opinions
Remains constant-
To feel empowered?
To overpower?
 
I don’t understand-
Absent from
Truth and love
They are meaningless
 
And yet, continually
Thrown like stones
Aimed at an
Invisible target
 
Except-the target
Is not invisible
It is flesh and blood
Feelings and emotions
 
And each stone
Adds another rip
Another cut in
The already worn fabric
 
So no, I’m not fine
But I am learning
To keep my opinions
To myself
 
I am learning
What’s important
Roots of truth and love
Holding me steady
 

“And you will know the Truth, and the Truth will set you free.” John 8:32
