Unfinished thoughts

She sat empty,
She sat longing,
For one to hold her heart,
For one to see her pain,
For one to walk with her,
Through it all.

I’ve never finished that poem, but it struck me as I was re-reading it. I also have the start of a story written underneath.

She looked around the room, blankly gazing at the sterile white walls, white bed and white floor. She was in there until they could figure out a way to help her live normal life “normally”. Within herself she wondered what normal was, for she felt she had never experienced it. Since her childhood she remembered the deep pangs of loneliness that used to assualt her thoughts and feelings. Often, when going to sleep at night she used to feel incredibly isolated and alone. Yet those childish fears never left her. Throughout high school, rejection seemed to follow her. It was not the flat-out, right-away rejection which seemed to haunt her, but rather the more heart wrenching type which comes only after a friendship has developed. Only after she was known was she rejected. 

The starting of that story is indeed bleak, but it seems to characterize my fictional writing. I love to start in the “depths of despair” (to quote Anne of Green Gables) only to bring my character to peace and to joy! 


About Melanie

My Being Purpose Statement: As a part of Christ's Bride and as one of His precious treasures whom He redeemed with His precious blood, I purpose in my heart to love and adore Him with all of my heart, soul, and mind (Matthew 22:37). I want to be beautiful in the sight of my Saviour, Jesus Christ. I will therefore pursue holiness (1 Peter 1:16) that I might worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness (1 Chronicles 16:29, Psalms 96:9) and go and proclaim His love, sacrifice and salvation to others who have not heard that I may have the beautiful feet of them that bring glad tidings of good things (Isaiah 52:7, Romans 10:15). My Life Purpose Statement: I desire to serve my Redeemer and Savior Jesus Christ throughout my entire life by ministering to girls and women. I pray that I will be able to bring many girls and women to the Cross of Christ that they may find salvation from a loving and gracious Savior. It is my heart’s desire to encourage girls and women who know the Savior to deepen their relationship with Him and to fall more and more in love with Him. I also want to serve women by assisting them in their everyday lives whether I am rolling up my sleeves to work alongside them or am connecting them with people, ministries, and or resources that will be helpful and beneficial to them. By God’s grace and power, through His Spirit, and for His glory will I endeavor to fulfill this purpose

    I agree with the quote by Anne of Green Gables. That’s the way to build your character and that’s what makes a good story (well at least one of the ways).

    Love the poem.
