strong 1.13.15
“the stronger person always apologizes first”
i know this is true
but somehow i never wanted to be
stronger than you
i wish you would take the lead
breaking the trail
has worn me out
but i know when you are in front
i am left behind
every time
i wish we would pull as a team
with God driving us both
in His direction

i need to rest, my love
my soul is old
and my heart is tired
i need that harbor
you wrote of
but unlike poetry
love letters are lies

perhaps i have always known
i am stronger and wiser
girls are cursed to love and suffer
like no man can

i know you hate
the chains of responsibility
more than any others

i have run out of words
to call you with
at best you ignore
an SOS
and too often
you have stolen hope
when it was all i had

and perhaps
it is not my strength
at all
but God’s

they say He will not
give you more than you can manage
but i know that this
is as false as your promises
God will give everything
but you must let Him manage
all of it

but tonight
i am tired
i need rest
and to be
wrapped in love

About m

My ego wants to think I'm a writer but my heart knows I'm just another one of God's Kids who sometimes has words to say. 2 human kids and 3 feline kids call me Mom. Or Mooooooom. Or mewom, depending which you ask. I'm kinda-sorta busy being a student again; this time I signed myself up for a bizarre torture known as Graduate School. Theoretically in 4ish years I'll have earned some more nice letters to put with my name. Let's face it, I'm addicted to learning and probably need rehab to restore me to sanity and remove the obsession to read books. I don't remember what free time is but I think I like to spend it sleeping or playing in the mud on a river bank.
