Running on Empty Poem

Are you running on empty? Are you ready to give up? Are you tired of struggle and hardship? Do you ever feel what is the use of living? If so, I would like to share an inspirational spiritual poem called "Are You Running On Empty". I pray it encourages your heart!






Are you running on Empty?

Are you running on empty my child?
Are you wand'ring alone in the night?
Are you searching for something you can't even name?
Is your soul about to take flight?

Does day follow meaningless day,
While leaving you unfulfilled?
Do dark clouds cover the sun up above
Leaving you lonely and chilled?

Do you ask yourself, What is the use
Of living a life that's a lie?
Do you stand in the shadows of apathy and pain
While life just keeps passing you by?

Come back to the light, my child!
Let Me fill your heart once again
With gladness and hope so with life you can cope,
Won't you let Me once more be your friend?

I have seen you struggle each day,
Through it all I have stayed by your side;
I have waited and watched for you to reach out,
I have gathered your tears as you cried.

Are you running on empty my child?
Are you wand'ring alone in the night?
Reach out, take My hand, let Me walk by your side
And lead you once more to the light.

                 Inspirational and Spiritual Poetry

We all need inspiration and encouragement. Sometimes just a kind word can be a blessing and it can help us get  through our darkness hour!! During those struggling times, I try to find some inspiring words to share and comfort. A good encouraging word can turn someones life around.

"He has sent me to heal the brokenhearted and proclaim LIBERTY to the captives."
Isaiah 61:1

                                  My Testimony 

I was born and raised in Detroit MI. I grew up in an unstable home. My father physically and mentally abused my mother. His abusiveness had an adverse effect on me as well as my siblings. It caused homelessness and a lot of mental anguish. It also caused a great deal of hardship and grief.

As a result, I did not attend school regularly. I developed a leaning disability. I did not like going to school. I could not read and comprehend like other kids in elementary. I struggled though middle school and eventually dropped out in the 9th grade.

 I did not get involved in any criminal activity during this time, but I wasn’t doing anything constructive with my life either. I was not interested in sports or anything else that would make my life better.

 I began smoking marijuana at around sixteen years old. I tried alcohol, but didn’t like the taste or the feeling of being drunk. So I stuck with smoking weed until I meet crack in 1984.

 My life quickly grew out of control. I lied, cheated, and stole to support my crack habit. My only purpose in life was to get high. I lost friends and family members trust and respect. Getting high was all that mattered to me.

 At twenty-seven, I committed my first felony that lead me to prison. It was one of the worse experience s of my life. I was completely lost and did not know or understand just how serious things were.

 As result of my insanity, I went to prison several more times. My last visit was indeed the lowliest and darkest periods in my life. I lost all hope about myself. Despair became my best friend as I sit in the cold jail cell. I thought of ways to end my life because I did not want to go through the pain and suffering anymore. But at my lowest moment, something happened. The Lord came and touched my heart and gave me a reason to continue on.

Today, I use my experience to help inspire and uplift others. I want my poems to glory God and give encouragement and inspiration to the "Brokenhearted"
