I wrote this poem toward the beginning of the academic year and haven’t yet published it for the blogging world and/or peers who perhaps do not follow my Facebook page as frequently as I post things. Many of us are burdened with broken hearts, but I assure you that there is redemption; “Heartbreak’s Redemption”:
You start cursing and hating
While your heart starts debatin’
With your friends ya start tradin’
Stories of men you’re hatin’
Da boys have done it again
Slept with other women for the ‘win’…
But they lost you! And your hearts crushed.
Ya still remember when he made ya blush
The physicality was sorta rushed
He kept your heart’s shame hushed.
Do you know if you keep it bottled,
Then one day unquenchable rage will follow?
Your hearts been betrayed,
Mind and soul dismayed.
“Am I too unattractive…
Is that why he was distracted?”
Your heart wants to be accepted
But once again ya feel rejected.
Trampled under arrogance…
They’ll receive their inheritance…
Shall their lives remain unchanged
And their loveless heart’s lust inflamed,
Then there’s no doubt in my mind
That Hell’s fire will swallow them from behind!
God’s wrath won’t satisfy
Nor will it rectify
The you that was dropped…
In a relationship that was stopped
At a pin-drop/ tick tock
Time’s running out to keep your attention
I’m aware this creates a lotta tension.
So here’s the truth…
The words he said never mattered
Used you and your battered
Your heart’s garments tattered.
But haven’t you heard?
I know it’s absurd!
Your Father died for you!
He created and adores you!
Knows your heart best
So please sit down and rest
Take the burdens on your chest
And place them at Jesus’ feet!
He’ll protect your heart with His fleet!
His vessels abound
And ready to surround
Your heart with undying love
Bought by Christ’s blood.
Walk towards His light…
And watch your dark days turn bright.
Well I hope that you were able to find the message within and that your heart’s were touched by the beautiful truth that there is redemption to be found in Christ’s love for us. I also pray and hope that this artistic way of demonstrating God’s unfathomable love for us will truly penetrate your hearts to the core and that you will consider allowing Him the chance to turn your dark days bright. Blessings friends!
