Relentless

Relentless

If all it took was one more day
Would it give you the strength
To try again
If all that was needed
Was a minute more
Would you stand in the bitter rain
Deal with the wind and stinging pain
Wait for that open door

Why can’t you believe like this
Why can’t you see things like that
Why can’t you be just a little fearless
Why can’t you live relentless

If all it took was another night
Would you fight
To change your life
If all that was asked
Was to be brave
You can’t lose now
Someone has paved the way
For you, the only thing left to do
Is to choose if you want to win or lose

Why can’t you believe like this
Why can’t you see things like that
Why can’t you be just a little fearless
Why can’t you live relentless

Why can’t we see
That we were created
Created, created, created
To be, to do anything
If we believe this
We can be relentless

  1. Crystal, you’re one of my favorite poets, I must say. Your weaving words make me ponder or smile. The last stanza was simply breathtaking. We were created in His image and that itself should be an honor. We were created to do anything for He has given us many talents to use wisely.

    Thank you for your words. God bless.

    1. That is true! That is what I wanted to drive home in the last stanza. Thank you Diana for your comment again–it makes me smile knowing that I’m one of your favorites and that my words are reaching people 🙂

      1. You’re most welcome, Crystal. 🙂 Yes, you definitely are a favorite of mine and I look forward every week to your writing.

    1. Thank you Margaret and God bless you as well. This was one that I ended up liking a lot. I’ve been in a season of reflecting on purpose and I believe this poem was born out of it.
