Truth in Love

by: Rebecca Taylor

How quickly perspectives change

Our minds tell us we belong with one sort of person

But heart’s reactions tell us otherwise

Then comes analyzing questions

Some based on fear

Others trying to find the logic

Truth is love is not analytical

But passionate

Based on trust and faith.

 

Moments of joy based on balance

Like two kayakers paddling in harmony to stay afloat

Pointed in the right direction

When things begin to go askew

They can be corrected.

 

Words said but not understood

Non comprehension at what was uttered

Sometimes we must look past the words to find the meaning

Protection comes in many forms

Hearts and minds have shields of armour

Sometimes it is the tongue, sharp witted like a blade

That slices the pain or shifts the blame.

And We Ask Why

by: Rebecca Taylor

**Previously published by Praise Writers in 2013**

Complexities everywhere, questions and quandaries,

sadness, hurt and despair circulate

shutting out the happiness and humanity of situations.

And we all wonder why do terrible things happen?

Why did I not get the answers that I want?

How can this be?

And we know there is God in Heaven and do not understand

why he allows some things to occur.

How good people are called to be angels before their time.

How nature rears her head and changes life for ever.

Why machines fail leaving a path of destruction.

And what can do we do but join together and pray

to Him that He gives us answers and help.

That He finds a way to show us how to move forward

That He reminds us of how strong we are,

how to shoulder burdens and test our boundaries.

That He helps us remember to believe in hope, love and the future.
