A Rough Hike

Have you ever felt loved and like people cared about you
For once people talked to you and made you feel important
But then suddenly people drifted away and they didn't seem to care anymore
Everyone you thought cared for you seemed to fade away
You thought they were your friend
You thought your friendship was more than something so temporary
You thought you were close and that they thought more of you
Just when you got to know each other things had to go and change
What distance does to people- when they don't see you they suddenly forget about you
I want a friendship to last more than just a changing season
I want to remain close and not grow apart
Just because we aren't together doesn't mean we can't still be close
I thought friendship and love was more than just needing a companion
Now I realize all that I was was just another person, I wasn't worth anything or wasn't special
I was just another person to you
And I'm quickly forgotten as though I never existed
 

Why can't things be how they once were?
When the world seemed like a calming place with no worries or dread
Where people believed in you and loved you for who you were
The older you get the more pressure gets put on you
More worries, stress and expectations
You need to be strong. You need to be confident. You need to be independent. 
You need to be attractive. You need to get married. You need a successful job.
You need to be smart. You need to be talented.
So many things get forced on us and we wonder why we often get upset.
When we were little things seemed so much easier
You didn't overthink things
You didn't worry at night over things said
You didn't question people's love
You accepted the world and it seemed to accept you.
How I wish I could stay there in that time
I wish I could still believe in others and they could believe in me
My trust in this world has been shattered and dreams have grown dark
This world isn't a happily ever after
It is a struggle and grows harder every day
Our life down here is the hike up the mountain till we reach the top
When this life is hard and treacherous, know the view at the top will be worth it.
With every step it gets harder and harder, but at the end we will be able to rest and take in the view
Our happily ever after isn't in this world, but is awaiting us.
This isn't our home, but God is waiting for us where we belong.
So keep your head up and finish your hike to the top, because you won't want to miss the view!

  2. It's always strange to me how some people are so quick and easy to give up on what used to be a great friendship. I have had several friends like that. But it is such a blessing to know that we have a great friend, the greatest friend ever, in fact, that will never leave us or forsake us. He is always there, everywhere, caring for us, taking care of us, blessing us, and loving us. What a great God we have!

    While it may not always be easy, I believe it is in those roughest times, that God takes them, and uses them to teach us, and grow us, for our good, and His glory. All things work together for good. -Romans 8:28

    Thanks for sharing your thoughts, they're a blessing to read! :)
