Jaded

Jaded

Jaded heart.
Callus feelings.
You feel
no hope.
You see
no cure.
You can’t help
but wonder if
there’s a future
for you.

You want to run.
You want to hide.
You can’t see past
Your jaded emotions
inside.

A spark of light
to melt
the pain
would soften you,
would heal you.
If only you could
see that there
is a future
for you.

You want to cry.
You want to hide.
You can’t break through
Your jaded emotions
inside.

Reach for Him.
He’ll soften you.
He is
the hope.
He is
the cure.
He can help you
and show you
you are loved.
There is a future
for you.

You want to run
into His arms.
You have been healed
of your jaded emotions
inside.

The Search

The Search

Jaded and scarred
Lost and confused
Desire for more
than what the
eye beholds.

Danger and fear
Darkness and delusion
Groping for a light
that you can’t
seem to find.

Searching and yearning
For the truth and wisdom
But you can’t seem
to see
an end to hopelessness.

Desire and Light
Desire and Answers
A Faith and Trust in something
Other than yourself
and your vices.

Longing and Reason
Hope and Truth
A feeling of peace
that passes
all understanding.

Jaded and hardened
Lost and wandering
Searching for the One
Who will hold you
in the shelter of
His wings.
