Is forgiveness easy? Is love enough?
Why is living today so tough?
Some days are better , some certainly not -
when crying through pain a lot.
I go on living - remembering 'bad' -
with so many memories sad.
Oh, why is forgetting so awfully hard -
in blocking memories scarred?
If I could go back a number of days -
maybe had turned some other ways....
but nothing can change, as facts seize me tight -
these truths I can never fight.
Do I still cry out reserving my cup -
or drop it and tilt my head up -
to thorns on the head and nails in the hands -
of Jesus who still understands?
