The Truth

December 27, 2011

A Quest For Truth

The truth you did not want to hear
Though you acted most sincere
You coaxed and claimed it was safe
You pledged acceptance – I showed my face!

So, my story I did reveal
Not all, but parts enough to seal
The fate you chose to then bestow
Upon my heart and my soul.
Quick to judge, then ignore
Without a word – I’m shown the door.

Faith in men I don’t proclaim
I find it sad and a shame
If man condemns where God does not
A twisted world, torn apart!

Then once again my saving grace
Is His love and warm embrace
And in my prayers, I curse you not
I plead for your soul but, hate… I do not.

Instead, so grateful, I remain
To have a friend who doesn’t blame
Who sees that I have stood for Him
Regardless of cost, in a world so lost.

And when the pieces of my heart
I bring to Him… I fear not
For, I know with love, my Father bends
To mend these pieces together again.

Then I realize mans ignorance proves
To deepen my faith in what is true
Much stronger my heart beats in the end
To serve my Father and not man!

May I sleep in peace with a final truth
God does not judge me like you do –
In an uneducated state

With hypocrisy and fear!

He protects and loves those who are dear
Those who stand for what is right,
Who love the truth and stand to fight!

And if my story
You found hard to “hear”
Reflect and imagine “living” it
before you sneer!
