In Vain

A Poem By Joy J. // 12/18/2018

I strive
And fight
And work
In vain
I try
And try
And try
In vain
My strength
Fails
Me
My effort
Remains
Worthless
No matter
How hard
I try
It
Never
Seems
To
Work
In vain
I
Try

I cry
Out
In tears
In
Pain
In
Desperation
Why does it
Never work
Out?
Why can I
Not make it
Happen?
But in the quiet
A kind
Soft
Voice
Reminds me:
Why do I
Strive
And fight
And try
In vain
When all I
Have
To do
Is love
And be loved
Why try
When all efforts
Are never
Enough?
Just
Trust
Me
And
Let
Go
No more
Will you have
To strive
In vain
Just love
And
Be
Loved
Just love
And
Be
Loved
Just love
And
Be
Loved
By
Me.

“He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.”*

*Psalm 91:1

I don’t thrive off of chaos: chaos thrives off of me.
