    To Believe In Me Is To Believe In Love......

    You can bend my love but it will not break
    You can stretch my love but my heart keeps shape,
    You can rob me of my self esteem and trample on my pride
    You can make me bear these tears of pain and carry this burden inside,
    You can weight this cross upon my back and lead me to my fate
    You can bruise my body,scar my skin,even ridicule me to my face,
    You can feed me all the evil you have....watch me scrape my plate
    The love I have In one of my hands is more than any evil your heart can make,
    This cross I tote is for every child,every woman,every man
    I take my fate like a true disciple...exactely what i am
    You see this cross all tattered and worn? You see how it bends my back
    I carry this cross with the strength of my Father
    It'll take atleast 3 of you to carry it back,
    So do what you feel you have to do
    But my death,my child is even for you,
    My love for you is greater than my Fathers loss
    My heart is made of steel,unlike your Fragile cross.

    What a wonderful prayer, how strong the Father is, for he is always there.

    Hi I am new too and I liked this one. It's always nice when a poet can speak from the heart about the Father.
