How Long?

by Dominica

how long will you live without hope?
how long will you live with all that pain? 
how long will you go on without a solution? 
when help is right there, 
to release you from the strain.

you have no expectations
and your heart is hurt
you're angry for no reason
lonely in the dark
and you find no comfort
not even in eating or sleeping

what's your excuse for not letting go?
what are you afraid of?
if it was so tight, 
we wouldn't be having this conversation.
but you are hard of hearing 
to the voice of Wisdom.

the wisdom i'm talking about is from above 
which is first pure,
then peaceable, gentle, willing to yield,
full of mercy and good fruits,
without partiality or hypocrisy

wisdom in boasting and or lying about the 
bitter  envy and self seeking in your heart is not from above,
but is earthly, sensual, and demonic-
where envy and self seeking is, 
confusion and everything evil is as well

stay tuned for your solution
