The Pursuit of My Heart

I have seen everything that is done under the sun,
and behold, all is vanity and a striving after wind.
 [ Ecclesiastes 1:14 ]

My heart is tired, the feeling is void.

Always coming and going,

Always searching,

Always distracted.

Time goes by, ticking by.

Where are you?

I’m always forgetting,

Searching.

I want to run away,

I want to hide.

My enemies surround me.

They pursue my life and try to kill me.

I can’t see in front or behind me.

But you never leave me.

You prepare a table

right in front of my enemies. 


Your love overcomes me.

You always find me.

You always remember me.

You always remind me.

 

You always sing the same song over me.


You are always singing the same exact song over me,

“You were made for ONE thing, 
and it’s to BE WITH me.”

 

I want to change the lyrics,

I want to hide,

I want to change the lines.

I ask, “Why?”

and I say, “But..”

“I’m not good enough.”

“I’m not strong enough.”

“I’m not smart enough..”

 

But you always sing the same song over me.

You are always singing the same exact song over me.

“You were made for ONE thing, 
and it’s to BE WITH me.”

I let go.
