HAVE YOU EVER

Have you ever felt,
the cold and lifeless hand of an infant,
gazed into their unblinking eyes
and observed the face of death,
when masked in a bittersweet innocence?

Have you ever touched,
your dreams and felt the simplistic joy,
of feeling them become reality,
only to abandon them,
for reasons that you cannot explain?

Have you ever watched,
your family who once shared the greatest of loves,
suffer an unforgettable and unforgiveable tragedy,
that will slowly, painfully and inevitably,
tear them all apart?

Do you know, firsthand,
the evil that resides deep within the hearts
of every man, woman and child,
have you seen its face as it randomely seeks,
a soul to torment and destroy?

Have you ever faced,
the darker side of life,
the one that awakens you in the still of the night,
crying to the unknowable God's,
'save me from myself'?

Do you constantly question,
wether or not humanity is obtainable,
in a world corrupted with suffering
and where war,
is the favoured solution for peace?

If you really want to know me
and understand the forces that compell me to move on
then take these questions,
and take this pain,
for this is who I am.

This is a very powerful, painful piece, Red. Excellent writing.

Wow.  You have lifted the rug to reveal the crumbs of emotions that I have been trying to sweep away.  Ouch.

Red,
I have done this one several times.

"Have you ever touched,
your dreams and felt the simplistic joy,
of feeling them become reality,
only to abandon them,
for reasons that you cannot explain?"

All the answers and questions!  Like I have stated before....that is all we have.

Chris

Wow! This was powerfully sad! The questions will make one stop in their tracks!

When you can't make up your mind
Which way is right for you,
Stop and softly ask yourself,
What Would Jesus Do?
