"You will find peace not by trying to escape your problems, but by confronting        
them courageously.  You will find peace not in denial, but in victory."—J. Donald Walters
                                                                 i am tempted                
                                                            to run away and hide:            
                                                  by stubbornness and pride,            
                                             i sit here, like a fool            
                                        governed by no fixed rule.            
                                             get behind me,            
                                                       you demons of the dark!            
                                                       shall you bind me,            
                                                            from life to disembark,            
                                             before the hour of gloom            
                                   shall populate my tomb?            
                              hope abundant            
                         blossoms on every breath;            
                    death redundant,            
                         His Bruised Heel underneath.            
                              this day my life i take            
                                   from hell's despondent lake.            
                         life is earnest            
                    to him that dies to live,            
               though immodest            
          the threats that make him grieve.            
     where fall the tears he weeps,            
the ground swells as he leaps.
