When do I remember you, God?

Dear God,

Why do I remember you only when I am hurt..
Only when I sit in the soil with my knees wet.

Why do I remember you only when I cry...
Only when the tears seep through the lips into my mouth..

Dear God,

I sometimes wonder why I remember You only in the times of agony and pain.
Maybe I am just a selfish person who needs You when I am sad.


God smiled and said silently, "Yes, you are selfish. With the fragrance of the blood from your knees, you smell the Me within you. With the tears, you taste the Me within you.

Troubles and challenges are my way to telling you that I am.

and I am within you."

Vague. And I like it. :D

Tightly locked, the leopard-trap...
Empty, the leopard-trap..
The railings of the trap shiver in the wind...
The memories of the captive that once was, still clear in their mind...

The trap is shut
with the memories trapped tight in it...

The trap wants to be open again...
and let go of the memories.
Even the leopard once trapped wanted to be - let free.
