All Day Long

I fight with myself all day long,

All day long, all long day.

And sometimes I win, and sometimes I lose.

And the dances go on, all day long, all long day.

And I laugh all the louder, at the top of my lungs.

What to do at the end when the singing is done,

And the pain just remains, all day long, all long day?

I will turn to the Lord, Creator of all things,

And give thanks.

Just. Give. Thanks.

For the breath in my lungs, all day long, all long day.

The experience of pain, and of love, and of depth.

The knowing that I am, and I feel, oh I feel.

All day long, all day long, all long day–yes I feel.

Just. Give. Thanks.

For the moment to live on the edge of myself

For the love that I know He has poured out on me

All day long, all long day.

Just. Give. Thanks.

And the fighting gets smaller,

And the joy just gets bigger.

The breath fills my whole being,

All day long, all long day.

I give thanks for the key:

Just. Give Thanks.

All day long, all long day.

  2. I really like this – I could imagine it being a song; your song that you are singing as you go through your days. I could really relate – to fighting with myself and to the strength of just giving thanks.
