Heavenly therapy--By Andrew Ntchindi Jere--Malawi

Heavenly therapy

Weary of self-trials in lifting off hardships
My head tilted up into the sky; knees bowed
Constant prayer resonates from my lips
Looking for a speck of dark cloud

My open hands raised up into worship
Waiting to receive a light of heavenly hope
From the Lord of great stewardship,
Like Israelites traveling to a land of milk and honey

My tongue denied a taste of any deliciousness
No food piles up my stomach base;
Craving for a comeback of righteousness
To manifest in spirit from paradise

My eyes turn red from lacking a blink
As they peruse through the Christian dictionary
Searching for an understanding to fill the blank
So that I am no longer earthly stationary

The confession of my in-depth worries
To the greatest therapist in heaven
Frees my mind full of problem series,
Success and restoration attained through His sessions
