I felt the pangs of despair, I cried the tears of hopelessness.
In the waiting, I thought I would never get whole.
But here I am, hopeful.
Here I am, proving them wrong.
Here I am, with my whole heart.
I’ve been kicked around, accused, rejected.
I got up every time. I kept getting up until they stopped and marveled.
“How is she still getting up? Shouldn’t she be in the corner, depressed and hopeless?”
Then I will point to God and I’ll keep looking up because you never failed me, you never gave up on me. Your hands kept reaching for me, you kept lifting me up.
It was You all along.
Just like dating, you are putting yourself out there again.
You are putting your heart out and you are scared that you may get hurt again.
But don’t stop being yourself, now is YOUR time to shine.
