How long?

Updated on July 10, 2014

When life is wasted
How long should you keep believing
That your life is really wasted
Or just taking a little break.

When your pain is unbearable
And no one is there to hear your cry
How long should you keep waiting
For that one friend you've longed about.

When your dreams are unreachable
And fenced with doubts and fears
How long should you live in apprehensions
Living with low self esteem.

When your eyes are wet with tears
And wiping never stop it from rolling
How long should you keep from holding
When someone is truly there awaiting.

When you have come in to full submission
And God seems so distant after all
How long should you keep calling
When God doesnt seem to hear your call at all.

When God is quiet
Dont be moved and withdrawn
It means He is listening
To what your heart truly cries at all.

And when He answers your prayer
Please don't go and turn around
For His heart is meek
And could break at your fall.

How long should you keep from running
When you can come to the one awaiting
How long should you be reading
When your heart isnt really listening.
