Psalm 6 How Long?

I am angry with myself.
  I feel weak and fearful.
I’m beset with conflicts, inside and out—
   paralyzed, shaky, sleepless, tearful.
How long must I endure this, God? What’s the point?
   Is it a test? Do you care? Are you there?

I can never prove you are there,
  I only know that I feel lighter for having asked.
It comes to me, what I could do next—
   that some of my conflicts can be put aside.
Then, I can face all that I need to do.
  I’m not so confused any more.
