Something important

Have you ever thought something was important

only to find out that it's not?

Have you ever wanted to be taken seriousely

only to discover that you won't be?

And have you ever hoped for the truth,

only to discover that it is aloof?


Why if something is important to me, is it not important to you?

Why when I try to talk to you am I left feeling a fool?

I know I haven't done the best, but it's the best I could.

And if I tried any harder, can you promise that it would do me good?

I want it to be over, but it never seems to end.

I want it to have finished, but the only way out is through, it's said.


What do you do, once a problem has come to define you?

How do you get back yourself, when taking away the problem means you don't know who that is anymore?

Yes, how to start anew, when the new you would have to be entirely new...

I'm glad that you decided to 'get it off your chest' in the form of such a beautiful/powerful poem. I was due for 'a good cry' anyway.

Ciao...Princess Prisca

Excellent, thought-provoking poem. Most people, myself included, will be able to emotionally connect with this poem. The answer is that each day is truly a new beginning and we move "forward" by living one moment at a time with faith that tomorrow is behind us and the things we do today will create our future.

Voted up, awesome and interesting.

Fiona:

You have such a beautiful heart, so please do not become discouraged. Please keep in mind that not everyone listened to Jesus or appreciated His message or efforts to save humanity.

The good news is that the Almighty and His Only Begotten Son, Christ Yeshua, see everything you do and hear everything you say...and for this reason nothing that you do or say will ever go unnoticed or unrewarded.

Warm wishes and God's speed - L.R.

P.S. In most cases, the seeds that we plant in Jesus' name grow under God's watchful eye and apart from our knowledge.
