If I, Let It Be

If I speak, let it be in love.

If I listen, let it be in humility.

If I rejoice, let it be in gratitude.

If I suffer, let it be in faith.

How I Cope

These past two weeks, I’ve been in an episode. For those unfamiliar with the term, an “episode” is when depression-prone individuals fall into a temporary bout of darkness.
I’m finally clawing my way back out. And let me just say, this last episode was something severe. Anyway, the Lord saw me through it. As use.

Now that I’m a bit more clear-headed, I want to share some of the activities that are helping me out of this pit of pity and hopelessness:

Love is a Game

Love is a game and one of chance.

Play by the rules and win romance.

First roll the dice, and then advance.

With playing, cheating, and tryna get rich.

Motives matter when looking to hitch.

Some hearts soar to false heights and land in a ditch.

 

Love is erratic, no tales are the same.

Some bask in pleasure, others wallow in pain.

With love, you can embrace or abstain.

Whatever approach, love is a game.

Then some come along and say, “Christians speak one way.” They call out my hypocrisy, the internet Pharisees.

Cuz I can’t be Christian,

I can’t love Christ,

If my language has some spice.

Check out MEphipany, I don’t give a shit. My relationship with Him is still legit.

You don’t like my tone, so you throwing your stones. Since when was your judgemental ass on the Throne?

I’ll clean up my act as He urges me to. But last I checked, He’s my God and not you.

There’s poverty, suffering, and death in the hordes. Yet you’re spending your time condemning my words?

Let’s play a game called, “Prioritize.”

Before you come for my speck, get the plank out your eyes.
