TO ASHES FROM GLORY

The following poem is one of my poems which I wrote about two years ago while I still blogged with thoughts.com. I hope you’ll enjoy this.

Always remember that I’m still here,

whether or not you want me near!

I know your lick is not an expression of your love for me,

But that it stems from your wolfy desire to eat sheep like me,

But just remember, if ever I should lick

Your fur so warm and thick,

It won’t be meant as a plea

To let me go, to set me free …

Remember that I was and am still willing to lay down my life for you,

No matter how much you may hurt me by what you say or do.

I forgave you in the past, so I can do it again

although this whole thing drives me totally insane!

If I can find the key to letting you go,

My belief in and commitment to God will oblige me to do so …

Although I won’t dare just yet to reach out a helping hand,

I’m still the only one  trying to understand

why you’re doing what you’re doing and your side of the story

or why you chose to fall into ashes from glory!

while everyone else is discussing you and gossipping about you.

I know you can live without me and I without you.

and it’s best if we never ever meet in this life again,

because maybe that’d cause either one or both of us pain …

I'm a down-to-earth Christian woman in my thirties, happily married, and the mother to two kids, a boy and a girl. I love writing, because it gives me the platform to be creative. However, this is not all there is to it for me. Writing about stuff also serves as a kind of a therapy that helps to equip me to overcome life circumstances positively, which was the initial reason for my decision to join Wordpress, because then I'd be able to launch a personal blog where I can share my life experiences, life lessons, and emotions at a given time. As such, I would definitely appreciate your listening ears (or reading eyes) if they are well-intended, but most certainly not if they're aimed at fishing what's going on in my heart, or if the only aim is to continuously criticise. Oh, and just to make sure you won't be disappointed: as a rule, I don't do pics. I might add a picture sometimes, but in general, adding pics to the stuff I write isn't realy my thing. Nevertheless, I hope you'll enjoy whatever you read here, and I'll be very pleased if you find some of the articles helpful or if they can positively contribute to your life. You're more than welcome to follow me if you like. I'd feel very honoured if you do that, and ... I FOLLOW BACK!
