God created some of us with a heart for others.
Yet it’s been trampled on many times.
And a million times we wanted to give up on people.
Yet He keeps whispering…
“Son, do not give up; I’ll be the strength you need”
Again and again He will say
“Just hang in a little, soon you will know why I needed you not to”
It can be difficult at times not to give up
When people take advantage of your good heart
But if the Master requires we don’t
His will we must obey
Maybe there’s a lesson in there for us
How He never gives up on us
For the many times His love for granted we took

One day we all will get the chance to tell our stories and be a source of hope and inspiration to many.
We will tell them about how rough the road was and that not all happy endings had a happy start. We will tell them what kept us going in the face of adversity and how our many adversities prepared us and shaped us into who we have become and how in solemn reflection we would wish we never had it any other way.
We will tell them how their perceptions and presumptions of our today are flawed by them not knowing of our yesteryears. We will tell them how much more they will see us in a different light and come to appreciate us if only they will be patient enough to read the whole book and not just the summary of our lives.
Till then, we bear no greater agony than the scattered misrepresentations they have given our lives…our untold stories!
