Serenity

This is for those who are toughing it out. For those who are tired of fighting and on the verge of quitting. This is for those whose bodies have taken beating after beating and don't know when relief will finally come. For those who've won or lost the battle and for those left to pick up the pieces.

For those whose jobs are on the line or who are struggling to make ends meet. Who don't know where the next meal will come from and don't know what to tell their children when they ask. For those who are uncertain of what tomorrow holds and don't know where to go from here.

For those who've lost someone they love. For those who've been separated for one reason or another from the person who brought them joy. For those who already understand why this happened and for those who are still wondering why. This is for broken hearts and lost souls. For those trying to find their way back.

The hurting, the anxious, the confused, the misunderstood. The ones who feel there is no one left to trust. This is for those who go to sleep lonely every night wishing they could reach out to someone...if only they knew how.

And this is for the simple fact that my heart feels for you. Whether I know you or not.

*****

God grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can;
and wisdom to know the difference.
