Love that Inspires Growth and Hope through Trials

Mental Illness and Our Take on It
Gallery

The gallery holds LIGHT for MI's collective works of writing, poetry, and images as a way of release from the stresses and suffering of mental illness.

They say You care for Your children

That their tears are in Your hand

That You embrace the broken heart

That You are our Comforter through the trials

 

They say Your presence is ever here

That You were, are and ever will be

With us, all the way to Kingdom come

That You are in and all around each of us

 

But these tears seem so silly

I’m crying for nothing at all

It makes no sense that I’d despair

Over something so small

These wounds were small, but

They’re inflicted all over me

I know it might not just be this

But the stress I bear is great

 

They say Your love is great and reckless

That Your grace is a violent storm

That cracked the surface of time

With the paradox of Your sacrifice

 

They say that You are tender and kind

That Your reckless love will embrace

And hold a heart together, bringing healing

To what has been broken, I am so broken

 

Lord my mind is broken

My mind has snapped in two

I still am so unstable, with

This depression that’s so strong

My heart throbs and aches

In my chest, its rhythm is somber

And I long for a healing touch

‘Cuz I’m so weary of falling apart

 

They say You care for Your children

They say Your presence is ever here

They say Your love is great and reckless

They say that You are tender and kind

So, here I arise and reach out for You

Just hoping You’ll hear a bipolar child’s prayer
