Recently I spoke to a friend going through a lot of stuff, she was so depressed I feared for her life.
Her story is one of despise and hopelessness, or so it appears. During our conversation I was able to listen and encourage her. Thankfully, she is now sorting a few of the issues troubling her.
But in spite of the pain, aches and troubles, we can survive. We all are survivorss and have come through different experiences.
So I hope this blesses and encourage you, as it came straight from my heart…..
It adores its palaces,
It sparkles like no other
It is the veil of hope
It’s been stained by tears
But not tainted by it
Its endured endless nights of toil
But its thrives
It is the veil of resilience
Thought trampled upon
Yet it remains firm
Is thread, still woven strongly
Withstanding the strain of abuse
It’s the veil of strength
It’s been unnoticed, untouched
It’s been lonely
Yet found solace in silence
It’s the veil of belief
It’s been rejected by friends and foe
Admired by strangers
But still rejected by nobles
Though made of the fines
Thread to be had
Still looked on with scorn,
It’s the veil of faith
Put on your painted veil of whatever colour
Hope, resilience, strength, belief, faith, for in time
It will shine through and it colours will be changed
by the veil, painted in the masters blood.
