    Sometimes I internalize my stress and frustrations and feel like I am losing faith in myself.
    But no matter what it is caused from, the overwhelming stress can be beat.
    Here is a poem I would like to share about it.

    Internal Combat

    Burning deep inside my chest
    Stomach knotting and crumbling
    Need an hour or two to rest
    Eyes wide open, I still am stumbling

    Weak and sore from head to toe
    The heat pounds through out my head
    I should fix this, yes I know
    But I curl up and cry instead

    Drained while my faith is running
    Reluctant to give up on hope
    But fear sometimes the Devil is cunning
    Blocking God’s view of how to cope

    Each day blurs, relationships weaken
    Is this of my own wretched making?
    Did I wander off, to the wrong beacon?
    Or am I asleep, in need of waking?

    Heartache strong, threatening to spread
    I need to contain it, it needs to supress
    Have to believe in me, push through the dread
    Breath. Relax. I can beat the stress.
