:The Stranger I See (Pt 2)

I remember this being better. But that’s kind of how our memories work. The lens we remember things sometimes makes them seem a little better (or worse) than they actually were.

God? Are you there? Can you hear my thoughts?
If you can, I plead….please….heal my heart.
How I’ve gotten here, I don’t even know.
The future’s so uncertain; I don’t know where to go.

One wrong step can lead so far astray,
Just one choice can throw it all away.
I’ve heard it said that it’s a slow fade,
But can you tell me why it only felt like a day?

I knew a man; he was strong and proud,
He knew who he was and followed no crowd.
He stood by his word and kept it to heart,
Stood firm in his beliefs and wisdom he sought.

But he disappeared a long time ago,
And left me there standing in his shadow.
I hope that one day we can meet again,
So I can let him know, his sins they are forgiven.
His name I have forgotten but I somehow feel connected,
To the stranger I once knew, and whose life I have rejected.

God? Are you there? Can you hear my cries?
If you can, I plead….please….hold me tight.

  1. I’ve heard people say that God heals our hearts, then others say He takes the broken pieces and mends our heart but it’s never as it was. For me I clearly see that He’s putting my heart back together in a completely different shape than it was before the abuse. For a long time I fought that because I wanted things the way they were – I felt robbed. It’s taken quite a while for me to see that God knew best and that He’s taken those broken pieces and he’s making a stained glass window – delicate, yes, but much more beautiful than anything I ever created before I was truly walking with Him. I’m praying for you, Jason. God is good and He never fails. Blessings~


    1. God is good indeed. I know he’s at work. I’ll come back around. I don’t want you to think my poems are an exact picture of how I’m feeling. At times yes, but not all the time. Thanks for your prayers still! When He mends our heart, we want it to be what it used to be because it is familiar, and we know how that heart works. God mends it, makes it new, and now we have to learn to love this new entity that lives in us. As I wrote in the Naive poem, lets welcome the uncertain and chase down those lions. The mended heart might be the one we were meant to have. Blessings to you as well 🙂


    1. Thank you!! I’m kind of taking a brain break and not writing for now. Gotta rejuvinate my batteries for the upcoming year!! Have a very merry Christmas and I hope the new year is awesome to everyone!!!!
