70 times 7

puzzlepiece

If I ever leave you puzzled, or seem distant

I’m just journeying my soul, looking for the missing pieces

Memories of where I first lost them, never cease to exist when

Recent pain make me re-live the time we turned the T.V off

Read an alligator book

Daddy was leaving

Or when

My first boyfriend ignored me in public

Our relationship wasn’t worthy to be displayed

Or when

Blood betrayed and laid with the first person I truly adored

When promises were broken

Hurtful words spoken

Each negative moment chipped away a part of me

Until negativity became apart of me

Masked in nonchalance, I couldn’t care more

No, really, I couldn’t have cared more

It reached its greatest depth

It’s what built the walls

Until one day, I heard a hammer

Someone trying to break through

This Being pierced a hole through my fortress

By it’s Light, I was consumed

All these lashings were preparing me

To be more like You

So my cheek will turn 70 times 7

Their burdens I will help carry

Their evil repaid with good

So if I ever leave you puzzled, or seem distant

I’m just journeying my soul

Remembering that Love, was the only peace missing
