The pain and hurt that you are feeling
Created by lying, broken promises and stealing,
It enters into the mind like a ravenous fire
With an unquenching, devastating desire.
It will literally bring you down to your knees
To where the Devil does happily tease,
And whenever you are nervously balking
It is because you hear laughter and also mocking.
To those who are suffering, this I will say
I too have been in your shoes almost every single day,
Remember, you and I have never done no wrong
Look into the mirror, and always stay strong.
No one knows what you or I are going through
But, of course God already knew,
One fact to the world I will proudly admit
God designed you and me, to withstand it.
