The Power of Prayer

I found comfort in silent solitude

A shelter from the commotion of life

When reality became slightly skewed

Isolation was my safe place to hide

Alone I dove into my darkest thoughts

Slinking in the shadows of seclusion

Here I fixated on my failures and flaws

They drowned me in deceptive delusions

I was shackled to the shame of secrets

Maddened by monsters maintained in my mind

Damned to destructive dances with demons

Eager to escape emptiness inside

With unsteady faith, I fell to my knees

That pivotal prayer brought eternal peace
