The hurts of the past do come back
The uncertainty of the future always exists
These are the things I need to make peace with
How to grow in strength and love
That what hurt me before and can hurt me now
Wanes in strength and loses its grip on my psyche
I am not bullet proof and will never be
But the armour of love and compassion and reliance on God
Can protect me from the bullets of life!
I may get injured but I will heal
Sometimes I’m taken by surprise, but the secret is
To remain calm and not feel the need to defend or justify!
To have compassion for the one who unknowingly, sometimes
Is throwing the darts
The intention is mostly love
But sometimes the words just come out wrong
So, with peaceful acquiescence I face a new day
Fill my heart with love and care
Let go of the negative things
Celebrate the positive
And realise that no on can hurt me
If my heart is full of love!
