letsloveothers

Love one another as Jesus has loved us.

The deafening sound of silence 

Screams from the corners of my loneliness 

Adrift in a sea of despair

Sorrow drowns my desolate heart

*****

Tears soaking my pillow each night

Reminders there’s no one near to dry them

Monsters stalking, laughing, taunting

You are alone, not worthy to be loved

*****

Day after day darkness deepens

Chains of hopelessness suffocate my soul

Strangling desires, optimism

Dreams, hope for a happier tomorrow

*****

BUT THAT IS NOT THE END OF MY STORY

*****

Before time existed on earth

Papa marvelously set me apart

Lovingly sculpting my being

Because I am the apple of His eye

*****

Flag of surrender won’t be raised

Death’s prey snatched from evil’s wicked clutches

Grace flows over my dying soul

Strength, endurance, courage to forge ahead

*****

I do not answer to victim 

Papa’s beloved my heavenly name

New creation, transformed, set free

The daughter of Almighty God
