Never let guys like him erode your faith,
filling your broken heart with nothing but hate
It’s a waste to wait
for the one who’s never even been worth it

Don’t take the bait
He’s up for another round of the same old game
No more drowning yourself in such awful shame
He’s been the only one to blame

Let the patience be the virtue
You’ve always known what to do
He’s been nothing but a mere distraction to you
Stay strong, don’t ever let him make you sing the same old blues…

One thought on ““STAY STRONG!””

  1. I like your poem very much. You are right about hate filling one’s heart. It crowds out love and if left not dealt with it can grow roots. I recommend if someone has hurt you badly enough that you feel hate: 1) Know that that is a natural human reaction. You are not bad for what you feel, but you want to feel differently for your own sake. OK? 2) You need to let it out. Journalling is great. Or talk it out with a really trustworthy friend. Or get in your car and drive into the country and yell “I hate you” as loud as you can for as long as you need to. No one is there to hear. Go for a sore throat. Get it OUT.
    Now you start the progress of forgiving. Yep, it is necessary for you to be free. The Bible says, “Bless your enemies.” That’s a great start. Ask God to bless the person who hurt you. Pray for specific needs if you know them. This won’t be easy, but you can do it. It gets easier. The pain will start to drain out of your heart, leaving it open and free to love. I know this sounds hard, but I hope you will give it a try. We all get hurt in this life—-some of us shamefully so. Opt for love anyway. I wish you all the best.
