    M. I. A.

    Love doesn’t know my name,
    It hides itself from my heart,
    It screams in horror at the sight of my face,
    Love wants nothing to do with me.

    Love doesn’t send me protectors,
    It leaves me exposed to the hurt of the world,
    It allows pain and fear to devour me,
    As I drown in my own tears.

    Can someone talk to love for me,
    Ask it to please send a friend my way,
    Someone who cares if I smile or cry,
    Someone who cares if I live or die,
    Please talk to love for me.

    He knows what it is to be vulnerable.
    He once hung on a cross...
    Naked to the world.

    But because of love
    He bore this shame.
    Trust me Tenay...
    This Friend knows you name.

    He cares if you live or dies
    He cares if you smile or cry.

    Here's some of the things Agape said to me
    in poetry, on love...

    Love the LORD thy God,
    Obey his voice,
    Cleave unto Him:
    For He is your life, and
    The length of your days:

    His love is your security
    And He shall cover you...
    24-7.
    He dwells between your shoulders.
    He is not far from thee.
    His love is your opportunity.

    I told Him you needed a friend.
    He said He'd be faithful to the end.
    I told Him you were sad.
    He said that His love was not a fad.

    I told Him it was unfair...
    Your lonely nights.
    He told me He could make it right.
    I told Him, you might need someone
    To hold your hand.
    He told me, that He is that brother
    Who sticks closer than a friend.
    I told Him, you might want
    A woman to hold.
    He told me that His love
    shines brighter than gold.
    He will guide someone your way
    At the right time on the right day.

    I asked Him in Prayer...
    He's already there.
    Just talk to Him now.
    He will let you know somehow,
    That He is Agape Love...
    Love on the highest level.

    He's yours for the taking.



    Your sista...Joyce
