LOST IN THE WOODS
I knew what I was getting into when I pledged my commitment to Him; but who knew it could get this tough?
I sought for a meaning to life, and a meaning He gave,
But certainly nothing good comes easy.
Burdened. Tired. Pressured. Out of reach.
That’s exactly how I felt. Like, I was simply alone..
The things I didn’t want to do, I found myself doing them,
Lest I continued to proclaim loudly, despite being eaten up inside.
But why, you ask?
An act, a deceiver and a burned one–that’s what men would see me as.
“So stand tall!” I told myself.
Even when it seemed like I was all a lie, “go on, pretend.” My mind said to me.
It’s a warzone I tell you! Whoever tells you it’s easy, hasn’t lived it.
“The kingdom of heaven suffereth violence…” The words rang in my head.
“For a crown of eternal glory, what did you expect?” My conscience questioned.
“A board game of sorts? Or a simple trivia?
Well tough luck– you got violence.”
Lost. That’s what I was.
I look around and all I see is trees, lots of them– everywhere.
Left–the tree of temptation. Right–the tree of discrimination. And below my feet, was that of condemnation.
Lost in the woods. Lost in the forest of this evil world.
“What am I living for then? I’m basically lost.”
I got down on my knees, and then I cried.
I cried, cried and cried.
But suddenly, I felt the urge to look up.
I wiped my tears, sniffed loudly…and then I looked up.
Hovering right above me, was the tree of life.
“I never told you your journey will be easy.” He said.
I stared at His glorious image and wondered, has He been watching me all along and I didn’t notice?
“I said in Me, you will surely have peace. But here, in this world, you’ll meet tribulation.” He continued.
“But don’t be scared. Only be of good cheer, because I have overcome it all.” He ended, displaying the brightest smile I had ever seen.
I sniffed before saying, “how can I? When we suffer violence on all sides?”
“Yes our kingdom suffers violence. The violent also take it by force. Our kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, no matter the violence, it will surely stand.” He replied.
“And I won’t get taken away in the end?” I asked, getting up on my feet as I felt hope rise in me.
“I will give unto you eternal life my child. You will never die and no man, no one, shall ever pluck you out of my hand.” He whispered, before fading away into the light.
I smiled to myself, as a certain peace warmed my heart.
Even when I was lost in the woods, His light found me.
And If I still am, I know He’ll leave his 99 to find his lost sheep a billion times again.
