Take it Like a Man

why do feelings lie so much when you're a woman?
This weighing down of the mind
Sitting in an open cell
Drowning in 2 feet of water
Crushed under the weight of a feather
Lonely in a crowded room
Crying out when there’s so much to celebrate
Super trinity swoops in for the rescue
The holy spirit whispers “It’s okay”
Like a pat on the hand
Jesus whispers “come to me …”
Like a husband’s embrace
And You finally Pipe in with “SUCK IT UP!’
With exactly the slap in the face I needed

Dear Abba,
Help me to suck it up
Know the truth
And take it like a man ...
On a cross
