Cas Reeves 2013
Don’t ask me to tell you the truth.
There are too many truths to tell.
It’s not that I’m lying,
I promise I’m trying,
The tears I am crying,
The feeling I’m dying,
All are as true as I can.
You ask a question
But I have no answer,
Not one, maybe 10 or 102?
But nothing I’m sure is true.
I smile and try to be kind,
I pretend I’m not losing my mind,
But the harder I try
The more that I find
I twist myself up in a bind.
I promise I try to be good,
I do as I know that I should,
If I could do better, I would.
My brain and my heart are not friends.
My spirit and soul are at war.
I wave a white flag and call truce,
Both smile and battle some more.
I'm a 46 year old Christian married mother of two young adults who I had the honour of homeschooling for 12 years. My husband Rodney and I live in Brisbane Australia. I am creating this space to share, as God leads, some of my writing and experiences living with schizoaffective disorder and pursuing a deeper healing relationship with God.
