Irony…

You devote your time,
no one else has time to give…

A Loved one is dying, although so painful,
You know you will be their, She needs you, you love her, She is so missed…

Even when it’s not really your place, you love her, it’s painful…
Your their because no one else has the strength…

They rely on your strength,
Knowing you will be straight forward and honest…

A strength they do not all have,
It is that strength they rely on,

But when that strength is used as a defense
towards their wrong doing, suddenly your strength is your fault..

Irony is a killer as some day they will turn to rely on that strength once again,
It wont be there, Absence caused by their own actions…

Responsibility will be once again shrugged,
As it is never their fault… Their negative actions never acknowledged…

Many people like this are trained in Christ,
Emphasis on trained, as they go through the religious motions…

True Christians… Are they? I think not,
As when God is truly in your heart, one doesn’t purposely exclude, they include….

Defining family… a commitment from one to another of love and faith…
Does blood mean anything, not in Gods eyes.. Not in mine…

Family is knowing that even when your back is turned,
There will be no muttering of hurtful words amongst them…

Love is defined by trust…
Trust is knowing you don’t exclude and you’ll never have to look back…
