*The Truth*

by Jazz

Life - it's a hard one that I live?

Its filled with struggles and mostly pain
All I constantly see is just rain
The burdens I have, you can't compare
With the everyday stress in life... I swear

Scars-they've taken over my body..
that's how I express my sadness, anger and fear
they're on my inside and outside-pretty much everywhere
Watching the bright red slowly flow
All the pains disappear?they just go?

Thoughts-I've had a lot of them
Suicide-lately, that's all that's been in my head
Honestly, I've imagined what it would be like to be dead
That's always what I've looked forward to when in doubt
But now I realize it's just the easy way out

Friends-there's one that has been a big help
She's helped me day by day
By making sure I don't attempt to throw my life away
She's been trying to show me this new path
and I'm truly grateful-Thanks Kath!

Faith-It's slowly growing
I'm just learning to trust and believe
And hopefully I'll be relieved
It's something that I need to freely choose
And the truth is- what do I have to lose?

Love-that's something I've really desired
It's been something that I've just started to see
I've noticed now that it's something my friends have given me
This is the antidote that will make me no longer weep
Someday soon, it will be mine to keep

Hope-something I should try and acquire
That's all I really truly need
Somehow with that, I'll be freed
To live life the way it should be
And forget about all the misery that surrounds me

The Beautiful Desert Rose
by: Melisa

I love poetry, what a great way to express your feelings, the words and emotions just flowing and this one is so deep – it really speaks to me and I thank you for sharing it, Jazz.
I don’t think life is suppose to be easy for John 16:33 says, “In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world." You gotta love the `but’ in that verse – we have to put all of our hope in our Lord and Savior, He has overcome this world and He offers us peace! Just meditate on this verse over and over again until its part of you:
My peace I leave with you, Jazz, My peace I give you. And I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your heart be troubled and do not be afraid. I am with you. (John 14:27)
That is the kind love and caring words of a Father! I went through a time where I felt very similar to the words in this poem and God came to me and said, “Press on towards the goal, Melisa, I am right here with you – every single step of the way! This may seem unpleasant now but some things can only grow in these desert conditions, in these raw harsh conditions, like the beautiful desert rose. I am preening you, I am helping you grow, and I am strengthening you while you blossom and unfold into something so sweet smelling and breathtaking.” I’m sharing this with you Jazz, because that’s what I see when I read your poem – a beautiful desert rose! And I'm praying for your healing while you’re in the desert and that you'll keep your eyes fixed on the Cross!
