My own deep well

I'm attempting to move beyond lightning-strike moments with inspiration into a more consistently inspired frame of mind. I wrote this in reply to my new understanding of the accessibility of inspiration. Enjoy!

From my own deep well I draw upon pain to be lonely and hurt for my sadness.
I draw upon love to feel stronger and hope for my gladness.
From my own deep well I draw upon mistakes that have shaped me and time that I've wasted.
I draw upon words that now escape me and feasts that I've tasted.
From my own deep well I draw upon people I've parted ways with and tears like medicine.
I draw upon friends that still know me and laughter to feel sane again.
From my own deep well I draw upon mystery to confuse me and elusive beauty.

From a deep well I draw upon eternity inside my soul.
I draw upon peace like a river and wait for God to make me whole.

...ramble on...
