Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid (John 14:27)

Endeavor to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. (Ephesians 4:3)

And into whatsoever house ye enter, first say, Peace be to this house (Luke 10:5)

Carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.(Romans 8:6)

Eschew evil, and do good; seek peace and ensue it. (1Peter 3:11)

Giving Up…

Giving Up--Decuain poem
Original Poetry and Photograph by Leona J. Atkinson ©2014

I wrote this poem, sadly, because of a conversation with a person who is dear to me that was experiencing feelings of giving up because of recent circumstances in his life. As we talked, he asked me what empathy meant.  I explained it’s meaning.  His tears moved me to realize that is what he was looking for, and not finding it, he was too weak to continue his search.  The poem is written to express his feelings.  However, I have hope that my actions and prayers will be the helping hand he needs at this time.
