School lunch time line. Something is on my mind.
"Hey! What's wrong with your eye?
Is it from your charcoal mascara or a cry?
Oh. I see. Because I was wondering...
These are your last few weeks of school...How's it going?
Great! That's good to hear from U.
Hey! What about this summer? What are U going to DO?"
"My plans were to spend with my boyfriend U see.
But he died two months ago and now it is only me.
Abandoned by his mom and left to walk alone to school.
He took a look at his life and decided life was just too cruel.
He got so sad. So depressed. It was suicide.
What can I do to make the pain inside subside?
I'm hurt. I'm confused. I'm battered. Bruised.
My heart bleeds. My mind aches. I am confused.
My sleep is gone. My mascara needs a place to run.
My eyes are weeping. My healing is sure not fun."
"Oh. I see. I see right to your soul.
I see. I see a gaping wide hole.
I know of the blood. The blood of the Holy Son.
My prayer for U is that HE becomes your sun.
A sun to clear your cloud right from your eye!
A sun to fill your void and to show U why...
Your life is so precious now...
Your life. My prayer. Your strength is how
When adulthood meets and greets U...by and by
U will recognize the window's soul of another "charcoal" eye.
Let me go. Let me let U eat your lunch.
Let me go. I truly had a hunch
That was NOT mascara under your eye.
That was simply YOUR soul waving, 'Hi!' "
In Memory of Our
FUTURE GENERATION...NOW GONE...
Who NEEDED our FOCUS, TIME and ATTENTION!
Dedicated to the ones we can STILL show OUR LOVE.
(especially Shauna as one mention)
22"The eye is the lamp of the body. If your eyes are good, your whole body will be full of light. 23But if your eyes are bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light within you is darkness, how great is that darkness!
New International Version (NIV)
