Perceptions

 I don’t understand 

Yet I must accept 

That hardship happens 

Pain is inevitable 

And that

I am to be

The picture 

Of empathy 

Because 

In Baptism 

I gave allegiance 

To You

And not

To past 

Perceptions

  7. Dearest Regine,
    The pain we have to bear is often not easy but when we focus on our life after death we can muster the strength.

  13. It's good to empathize with other's struggles. We should try to be a beacon of light for those in a dark place.
