"S" is for shaken

Jenny Matlock

So the other day my whole world was shaken
making me question the roads I've taken
Could my very existence be mistaken?
Have I made a fake life and left the real one forsaken?

Questions roll through my mind's eye
Did I follow the right paths before I die?
Did I make the right choices or didn't I?
Is this my reality or just another lie?

Shaken to the very core of me
has my screaming for my own reality
cant see the forest for the trees
especially from down upon my broken knees.

I pray that the reason for the feeling of being shook
has left my radius and taken all its took
for I cannot handle anything else taken away from me
barely clinging to a semblance of normalcy.

There's no other feeling near the one of being shaken
that makes you question the roads not taken
or whether you're still in the lord's grace
or have you been forever forsaken.


  1. This is such a sad piece, but very well written. I am hoping that it is not really about you!!!

  2. I can totally relate! Visiting from Alphabe-Thursday!

  3. very profound Well written Thanks for sharing

  4. I often do poetic Alphabe. Yours is excellent and most thought provoking!

    My Alphabe Thursday is at:

  5. What a poem! It leaves me with so many questions.

  6. I absolutely hate being in a place where I question the decisions I've made, but I can't do anything to change what I've already done, and it's shaken up my life. I've been in this position a lot.


  7. We've all been there but I for one will always be grateful that our paths met once again & know that I will always be a tree in your path that will embrace you so you can rest & relax:-)

  8. God never promised that bad things won't happen, but He did promise to always be in them with us. God will never forsake or abandon you.

  9. Hooray! Your link worked perfectly! Go you!

    I've been trying to live my life without looking back. Hindsight is always 20/20...and the road we took is the best we could do at the time.

    This was a very thought provoking link.

    Your pain touched my heart.

    I wish you healing and peace.
