Restoration Rejection

October 4, 2017

I called out for you

But you wouldn’t listen,

I screamed out for you

But you wouldn’t listen,

I reached out for you

But you pushed me away,

I brought crisis and joy

But you still didn’t turn,


Now I talk, nor reach anymore

No longer drawing as before,

I’ll agree with your will and say goodbye

Never to speak until you die,

I’ve accepted that we’re not to be

You’ve shunned to be apart of my family,

Left to your righteousness, which are filthy rags

Piling up wrath in your sinful bags,

Light and darkness cannot share space

Your hardened heart has turned my face,

There’s nothing more to say, except

I never wanted to see this day.

“[The LORD] is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance” (2 Peter 3:9 NIV).
