A Coward’s Foray

9ff0133f8c3bc0397a4c92682b027e03.600x643x1

You

who made me

believe

in love again

cured

my wounded heart

showed me

the path

to ever after

once more,

you

who made me

laugh and love

with my

whole heart again

you

who made me

the way

I was once more –

you

broke my heart

shattered

it to pieces

I

have never

felt

lonelier than now

as I feel

love slowly

fade away,

to be

the person

I was

when we met.

Why

was I

foolish

to think,

to hope?

Love

is nothing

but a game,

a gamble,

a risk

and

I am

but a

coward,

fleeing

at the

challenge.

How?

How can

you explain

a loneliness,

a sadness

so pervasive

that

no words

can describe?

When

all that is left

is a hole

while

everything around

is a bustle

of activity?

How can you

explain

anguish, grief,

and strife

when

the war being waged

is within?

When all that

is left

is a pit

while

everything around

is

a merry celebration

how

can you explain

shadows –

overwhelming emptiness

when

I can’t even

explain myself?

Morning Thoughts

More and more, the so-called “third sex” rights is gaining a lot of momentum and it is hard for most people, me included, to easily accept it mainly because of what our Holy Book (Bible, Quran, etc.) say. How do we stay true to our beliefs but at the same time respect the LGBT community? I find it hard and painful to also accept that just because a person is gay/lesbian then they are immediately condemned to hell. I have friends who are gay/lesbians and they are the best people I have ever known, the truest friends I have ever had. Furthermore, I find it hard to accept that my God, the God who taught me through Jesus to be compassionate and tolerant, would be so cold hearted to those belonging to the LGBT community. I guess, as my mom would say, in the end, it is up to God to say who goes to heaven and who goes to hell, not us. All we can do is love and respect every living thing in this world and keep praying that He will always guide us to do what is right according to Him – not according to any person on earth who most of the times twists the Holy Book’s words for personal gain.
