Heaven is a Matter of Perspective

Guest blog by Shadoe Christine

I’ve gone so long pretending
Trying to show everything is okay
I’d rather not worry you
With the weight I carry each day.
Its slowly getting harder
To hold all the emotions back
Piece by piece, fragment by fragment
The illusion is starting to crack
You’ve begun to notice silent tears
You’re starting to realize the pain.
Beginning to see how fragile
I am within this frame.
There’s not a lot of strength left
Not as much fight I have to give.
My body is beginning to break down
And all I want is to live.
Live for every moment in time
That I took for granted before.
Pray and be thankful for my blessings
Try to be humble as I kneel upon the floor.
I am thankful for the many things
God has had me live without.
Because if I he hadn’t done so
How would I know what life and love are truly about?
