I’ve sought counsel from numerous people–about me:

My life. My hurt. My pain. My joy.–on all the different things I see,

I went to them seeking counsel, in how to please the One above

how to live a life for Him–not out of force–but love.

I’ve gotten the wrong advice, from more than I care to remember

advice that cut, bled, and scarred me–all which became a part of ‘I’

a part that is impossible to dismember

but it comes to a point that I realize, that their wrong counsel was essential

in removing a faulty foundation and showing me my true potential

without there bogus words, probably well intentioned

I wouldnt have appreciated the uplifting words

perhaps would have ignored them when mentioned

Instead they sunk deep, straight to an aching heart

making more sense than ever, a feeling I hope will never part

There are certain things that are not understood

except through pain then redemption

certain things that are not understood

unless you are forced to first question

question everything you know, and everything you did

everything you heard and everything you believed in

They say learning is a gift–no matter who the teacher

Even if its teacher is pain–as long as it leads to a brighter future.
