Look Above

As I was reading a friends post this morning, Welcome to the mad house, I was reminded of a poem I wrote in 2004. Fi’s openness about a turning point in her life and her courage to share inspired me to dig out and share my poem. Thanks Fi. x

Look Above

by Alienhippy (Sept 04)

As time goes by we see courage

From people we know or we love

When we’re least expecting to see it

We see someone we know turn above

A person gets strength from believing

And encouragement from feeling their worth

In times of trial, we curl up and cry

This instinct we are given at birth

To take all our problems inward

Makes our hearts break our minds ache

To give in to prayers and petitions

Is the thing we should do as we wake

The fear we feel of the unknown

Is what makes us take on all our woes

But when we learn to trust in the Lord

The worry and pressure….. it goes

God gave us His Son our example

For our sins he felt pain on the cross

So when we are lost and don’t know where to turn

We should follow our saviour….. Jesus


Heaven Bound (created using Apophysis)


1 Peter 5:7

Cast all your anxiety on Him because he cares for you.

  1. I love this poem. It’s an inspirational reminder that when we are troubled or anxious that we can pray. Thank you

  2. It might be a silly question….but how do I do trackbacks and/or pingbacks? I’m a bit technologically challenged!
