The Cure for Pain

Divine Revelation

How dare I complain

about my suffering

for You lived a life

as a slave to pain!

You are rejected daily!

Humans do everything

they can to hurt You

and You still love us.

I could never withstand

such abandonment;

that is why You promise

to always be with me.

I can never run away

for You will follow;

I can only stray so far

before you save me.

No matter how much

I stumble away,

You forgive me and

restore my fire in You.
