After All; I Still Believe
With all the moments that had deceiveIn this world where ugly residesEven now, after all; I still believeWhen in this world used is the naïveTo this as evil destroys one's insidesWith all the moments that had deceiveAnd to this one finally does perceiveIn knowing the wrong the moments decidesEven now, after all; I still believeFor to the moments tears did fallAnd so the heart did pound a sound unknownBut in silence peace did come, after allAs to this world innocence did moanThen somehow this became my songWhen to the evil my heart was shownEven now, with suffering prolongWith all the moments that had deceiveI'm grateful knowing to Him I belongEven now, after all; I still believe©Doris Elaine
Thoughts: The innocent and naïve do get greatly used and hurt in this world we live today. But joy and peace for the used comes in the silence in knowing there is One that will never use your unknowing heart; rather will treasure what you have to offer in trueness. Never give up your realness and humbleness, no matter what. That is something to be treasured when all is said and done believe that good still exists, after all; I still believe.
Added Notes: This poem was originally posted on July 17, 2020 and is in my book My Form Created: Tervillazanelle. Thought it needed reposting; at least, from where I stand now. I have, myself, been through many ups and downs in my life and know had it not been for Jesus watching over me, I would not have made it through. Recently been through much change in my life and am grateful, He was and is still there to guide me onto the right path. I still make mistakes, as everyone, after all we're human; but, without my belief in a greater power, I would have given up a long time ago. He has given me hope for a brighter future. It's hard to believe in a greater power that is willing, ready, and wants to help those that are being abused and used and or is going through changes or a hard time. Some want to say, "Believing in an invisible God, that's non-sense". But all one has to do is look around at this beautiful, intriguing, and functionable world God created thousands of years ago to know a greater power does exist. And the fact that us humans are still here, when he could have destroyed us long ago, is a reason to believe He loves humanity so much that God gave us His only son, Jesus Christ, to save us from our selves. God, Jesus, our Lord is not invisible! Every waking moment He shows Himself to humanity. I know I can not exist without this knowing; after all, I still believe!
