Worth it



it's funny how
the word

life

can make you feel
so many things

joyfulness
hopelessness

excitement
misery

so many stages of

life

once young and oblivious
feeling sad and trapped
being freed and loved.

life
at seven years old
oh what a time that was

feeling the air
rush around me
running free

what a perfect world this is
i thought

life
at twelve years old
i shiver at the thought

trapped
in cold darkness
hopeless

what's the point
i thought

life
at seventeen year old
renewed

loved
by a creator
who has set me free

so what is life?
life is

beautiful
heartbreaking

wonderful
incomprehensible

gut-wrenching
complex

but
our lord
papa 

he is never changing 
always stable
faithful

and that makes
life
   so
      very 
         worth it.
