Untitled poetry submission

Conspire received an untitled piece to share on the blog from a former class participant – we’re happy to oblige:


As I grieve a life whose time has passed, a life full of family and lovers I thought would last. A place in my heart has a huge void, but the scales lifted from my eyes tell the true story of the lies I’ve been told. How many more lives will this game take? All in search of a love and family. All things Satan is so willing to fake. He lies, cheats and promises you the world. All the while damaging our eternal souls. Truth be told there is only one true way, but to yield to that voice seems a high price to pay. We think we’re defined by the life that we’ve led. But choices dear friend are the reason so many of us are dead. So sit and think of the choices you’ve made. Not only for this life but for the one that’s ahead, the one we have when this body is dead. These words are harsh, some say they aren’t true, but down deep inside I know you wonder too! Be strong and courageous to step out on faith to find those things we seek that can fill that empty space. Outside of the box is how we must think, there is a life waiting for us of true love and respect. God’s love and grace are absolutely free, he wants you to know there’s life in the blood his son let flow. A choice he made for you and for me to ease the pain of a life that was never meant for you or for me. There is nothing more I can give, except these words and his love I’ve placed in your heart. God is the love we so desperately seek. If this reaches just one then its purpose is served. – Anonymous
