Body relentlessly attacked.
Slammed into rocks like driftwood.
Body would splinter if it could.
Washed up on the shoreline.
The waves still lapping-lapping.
It will never stop demanding.
Either move now or return to me.
Your body belongs to me-come stay.
Let me carry its brokenness away.
Don’t let me give up.
Be my strength through the pain.
Clear my mind-keep me sane.
Prayer answered immediately.
The waves no longer reach.
Pain has its own lesson to teach.
Pain is a manipulative companion.
Destroying my body but not my soul.
Ending has already been foretold.
Just beyond the waves surge.
God’s hand sheltering-protecting.
No chance I will be forgetting.
“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish, but have eternal life.” John 3:16 N.I.V.
