This was inspired by tidbits of many people's stories, and I might try to turn it into a song, but for now, I hope you enjoy this little sketch I wrote. It is very rough and unpolished, but I still wanted to share.
From The Father, to His child.
You've been though so much. You've learned so many lessons in a years time. Joy, despair, apathy, emotion overload, fear, hatred, worry, worthlessness. Each has run through your mind in ways so much more than the world will ever know. You've made a lot of choices, and for a time you couldn't hear hope clearly. Confusion tried to rule your mind, and for a time he was winning the battles. You felt lost. But it didn't end there.
Thank you for reaching out and letting others help bring light back into your life. Thank you for trusting again and opening up your life, even when you felt so ugly. I remember when you started to push the curtains aside and let the light come in. From your perspective you felt like you were revealing the dusty attic that you really didn't want to deal with, didn't want to clean, and especially didn't want to let light expose. Your eyes were crying out—I am ugly. Stop wanting to look at me!!
But you let me in anyways. I'm so glad, because all I have for you is love. From my perspective, you were showing me the rocks that had jewels inside. I couldn't wait to get our my tools and start to work away the exterior. For inside every rock this world threw at you, every bruise your heart has received from them, I am going to chip away the pain and reveal the diamonds, rubies, emeralds and gold of your heart.
My dear, beauty has overcome everything in your life. Hold fast to me, for I will never leave. Thank you for loving me again, and I promise I will never stop loving you.
