Life Chafes

Sometimes life feels
Like I’m stuck in mud
Swimming through jello
While everyone else
Runs right on past me
I get trapped, fed up
With where I am
I want to charge ahead
Life chafes at me
But, I lean and trust
In the only One
Who can see ahead
Who knows the path
He’s taking me on
God I trust in You
Life’s chafing at me
It burns and rubs
All this waiting around
God I trust You
Disgruntled as I feel
In this time of waiting
Which is chafing at me
Be my balm against the sores
My shield against
Deadly comparisons
That steal my joy
That steal my breath
Make me feel a bit
Like I am worth less
Because I’m stuck here
While all the others move around
God, teach me to love
Exactly where I am
Because life is chafing at me
