Nice Girl


Try to be
A nice girl--
Sweet and supportive
Understanding...

No backstabbing,
No underhanded tricks
No Petty squabbles.

But the more life settles
The less you care
And all the niceties of life
     disappear--
Fade away to reveal
A petty world around you
And you don't want to be
--A nice girl.

Express your anger
Or cage it away
Stop being the soggy shoulder
Or continue to comfort?

When logic asks:
Why care for the world
     when the world doesn't care for you?
But your heart says do the right thing--
You can't hide that deep inside
A nice girl
Lives.

Waits for that final blow.

About

Author Image Author Image I love reading the Word of God. With prayer God's Word reveals so much: from comfort to temperance, from perspective to affirmation. Digging into the depths of the Word, cross-referencing history, language and time differences, is a passion of mine. In March of 2015 I decided to go back through the Bible doing an in depth study on each section I read. Eventually I decided to share my journal of notes as I partake in this journey. I hope you are blessed by God and inspired to pursue a deeper relationship with Him. I love reading and learning about God, nature, and science. I am interested in how it all connects. The Creator's fingerprints are all over his creation. We can learn so much about Him and how we came to be by exploring the world around us. Join me as I explore the world and draw closer to the One who created it all.
