There is Hope

Does love really hurt?

The lack of love does.
Love is the best feeling that exists.
It’s more than a feeling.
It’s a state of mind.
And nothing is better than love.
I love someone very much.
That person keeps hurting me.
I go to God in prayer
and ask Him to release me
from the hurt.
Release me from the pain.
“Please,” I beg.
I don’t want to hurt anymore.
I don’t want to let myself not be loved.
I want out of it.
Let me out.
This morning I got the same answer
I keep getting.
I’ve been getting it for years.
Hang on. Hold on thy way.
Keep on keeping on.
Be patient.
Stand by.
Be loyal.
Even if it hurts.
Do as I do.
Be strong.
Oh, and by the way Alice,
you aren’t the best at
loving either.
So maybe you can
change too
while I give the other person
the same answer in your behalf.
That’s how God loves.
I wish I was more like Him.
I hope I can be.

You know who you are.
This song is for you.
I’m sorry.
I will try to love better.

When I get done praying
and pouring my heart out.
God doesn’t shame me.
He tells me there is always hope.
For all of us.
