I must admit this past week I was struggling to reason with pain
And I kept asking myself why do I have to go through such pain
And maybe I don’t understand it very well.. Note: mine being emotional, it drove me in circles
But what I didn’t ask myself was why I was in such pain

I can’t believe I forgot easily
To let go, holding on to a rope for a while it bruises the hands
Well the bruises don’t really matter after you let go
You can trust your flesh to heal and the pain is actually temporary

I can’t believe I forgot easily
Denial, makes it impossible to go away, making suffering seem like it’s what we deserve
Denial so crooked, making pain seem so real and permanent
Taking a tore on my heart

I can’t believe I forgot easily
Why Jesus had to come on earth in human vessel
To make me understand how we think during our tempting days,
Most importantly how to show us the ways around the dark days and move in righteous, for He too suffered but it wasn’t permanent

How I easily forgot to pray and thank Him, and ask Him to keep me remembering such ways
