letsloveothers

Love one another as Jesus has loved us.

A Wicked Game

Self-pity, what a wicked game you play

Convincing me all is forever lost

Luring me down a dangerous roadway

Anesthetizing pain at any cost

**********

Erecting an impenetrable wall

No unconditional love for others

Doubt and regret roars like a waterfall

Never silent these cruel tormentors

**********

Emotionless, unfriendly, distrustful

Abandoning hope of a better life

Welcoming scarceness as acceptable

Expecting no more till the afterlife

**********

But this is not what Jesus has promised

I am to live a life of fruitfulness

Victorious, brave, the Lord’s activist

Wholeheartedly trusting in His goodness

**********

Christ’s bold voice in the deafening darkness

Amazing light showcasing His glory

Compassionate and loving, not callous

No fearfulness, apathy, self-pity

**********

This day I choose a life of abundance

Overflowing with Christ’s grace and mercy

No longer meditating on absence

Believing my destiny won’t tarry

Be a VOICE shouting into the wilderness.

“CHRIST is returning!”

        The poem listed some symptoms of self-pity I hadn’t considered before. It gave me food for thought!

Be a VOICE shouting in the darkness. Lets love others!
