Start Running Now

A Poem By Gina I. // 9/11/2020

I feel so conflicted
And yet so in love
But am I just afflicted
When push comes to shove
I can't say it out loud
I can't speak what I mean
Maybe I'm too proud
To ever come clean
I don't want to hurt
Either myself or you
You wouldn't be the first
That I've shown my colors to
But will you be the last
And perhaps be the one
To acknowledge my past
And show me how it's done
Can I forgive myself
For the hurt I will cause
Or will I keep running
While you try to cut your loss

Gina, I love the raw honesty

Gina, I love the raw honesty in this piece.
I can't say it out loud
I can't speak what I mean
Maybe I'm too proud
To ever come clean

The feelings of this poem are so relatable. These lines and the ones below were my favorites.
But will you be the last
And perhaps be the one
To acknowledge my past
And show me how it's done

“The gospel alone is the power of God unto salvation.
Therefore, suffer, yes. Be misunderstood, yes. Be shamed, yes. But do not be ashamed. For the joy set before you, take up your cross, follow Jesus, be shamed and despise the shame!" -- John Piper

Thank you!

Poetry is one of the easiest ways for me to express myself and I'm glad it touches you too!
