Life in Vain

A sea of doubt:

With or without?

 

The truth or lies?

One lives, one dies.

 

A desperate plea,

To come and see,

 

Drawing me near,

Only to leer.

 

To live or love,

And rise above?

 

Tossed to and fro –

To stay or go?

 

A choice to make:

To give or take?

 

I’ll build a wall,

So I can’t fall.

 

I’ll hide behind,

My feeble mind.

 

I’ll shut the door,

On what’s in store,

 

And turn the key,

Never to see –

 

Forsake what’s real;

Choose not to feel.

 

Ignore the deep,

Avoid the leap.

 

Let fear take hold –

Do as I’m told.

 

A storm rolls in,

Whispers of sin.

 

Removes the choice,

And steals my voice.

 

Or so it seems,

Lost in these dreams.

 

I’ve missed the mark,

Sold light for dark.

 

I’ve been unkind,

Left love behind.

 

I’ve given up,

Emptied my cup.

 

I feared the squall,

And lost it all.

 

I flipped the switch,

And chose to ditch,

 

Rather than chance,

The great expanse.

 

A battle cry,

Opens the sky.

 

A lightning bolt,

Demands revolt.

 

A thunder-clap,

Reveals the trap.

 

The price is high,

I cannot lie,

 

But what you gain,

Is quite arcane:

 

Life without pain,

Is life in vain.

 

Love will suffice,

With sacrifice.

 

For without rain,

There is no grain.

 

So come ashore;

Grasp hope once more,

 

And you will find,

God’s love defined.

Verse Of The Moment: 

10 The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly.  – John 10:10

(Disclaimer: The great depths of my sorrow can only be justly compared to the impressive heights of my joy. If you stay tuned in long enough you’ll begin to see the silver ray of hope in even the darkest of my reflections.)
