And now for the poem!
We cry. We bleed. We moan in distress.
Our suffering is for our best.
The pain we feel, the hurt, the sadness,
God allows it so that it will shape us.
In the darkness we cry out to God,
Through it all, He is always good.
He gives us suffering for a reason,
A time of growth in the season.
In God alone our trust is placed,
We lean on Him in our pain.
Our relationship with Him grows strong,
While our suffering is so long.
But in the end when our pain lifts,
We realize our suffering was really a gift.
We’re no longer angry because of the pain,
We grew the most in those days.
