(“so you’re decided, this is your choice?”)
Where’d you come from, what’s it to you?
Sorry…sorry I don’t even know you, I didn’t mean to be so rude. I’m just kinda’ upset that’s all. Feels like the whole world is against me..ya’ know.
(“I do know and they are, but they hated me before they hated you”)
I just always feel like I’m drowning.
(“that’s because you are”)
Can’t breathe, can’t fit in, overwhelmed and I can’t seem to shake it.
(“here is a suggestion…”)
Sure, you seem nice, like super nice actually, nice voice anyway?
(“roll over onto your back“)
Sounds strange but I’ll give it a try.
Okay here goes….hey I feel better already.
(“ I knew you would”)
(“tingly all over?”)
Yeah…how’d you know?
(“you even sound better now”)
Who are you anyway, how do you know these things?
(“you’ll learn in due time, that help has arrived”)
I don’t get it, I’ve always felt looked down on, could never seem to fit in anywhere no matter how hard I tried. But not while I’m talking to you, it‘s like I‘ve always known you.
Now I sound strange.
(“you were looked down on and in on in ways you can’t understand right now”)
(“I was leaning over you, extending my hand to you”)
(“I saw your outstretched hand, your fingers a tenuous dance as you fumbled through the darkness of uncertainty“)
(“I sent many to help you but they couldn’t deliver you from your own choices, they sowed seeds in other’s who were ready instead”)
What do you mean ”deliver me?”
Do I look like a pizza to You?
Do you work for fedex, I don’t get it?
I’m not understanding you, I‘m not following what you say you sound just like a “Bible” come to Life but spoken rather than read and just like that book, I can’t get a single thing you are saying.
(Precisely! But you will, you’ve already begun a new journey)
I’m afraid of heights!!
No planes, no flying for me !!
I’m not going anywhere!!
(“I’ll tell you something else, a long time ago someone hurt you. You were but a child then. You were wounded deeply, then lied to. Told you were worthless and you believed it”)
I don’t know you and that’s not something I care to discuss anymore, how’d you know that, who told you ?!
(“he’s called the father of lies, he seized the opportunity while you were blinded and weakened. Kept whispering in your mind…)
(“You are drowning…”)
(“You are drowning…”)
(“But I held you safely in the palm of my hand the whole time“)
Oh Lord… I remember now. I was confused, angry, lost, affected and affecting!
Wandering, stumbling, in the wilderness aimlessly like a wild animal just trying to survive.
(“forty years almost to the day”)
(“you were imprisoned”)
A couple of times just overnight, misdemeanors is all.
(“here is The Truth, but first gird your loins”)
(“now I will allow you to see the Truth”)
Oh no…! That can’t be ?!
That’s not me !!
(“courage…truth can be painful but it will also set you free”)
But… But…. all these years, facedown… In a few inches of water?
(“drowning in tears of self pity to be exact”)
What a fool I’ve been! I feel like my guts were ripped out!
(“that’s because, in a manner of speaking…they were”)
At the time I couldn’t feel a thing, I’m grateful to you for showing me the truth. Though not liking who I was, feeling something now I can’t describe because I’ve never felt it before, not like this…not this real.
(“good…that’s a start”)
(“now, take my hand, stand up and walk”)
(“listen carefully, I have to leave now but I’m going to be sending you some new clothes”)
(“as soon as they arrive, take off the old and put on the new”)
(“burn the old in a fire”)
Okay, I will…promise.
I love you !!
(“I love you too, now then…don’t forget to take off those soggy socks”)
Hey, where’d you go?
Come back please.
It’s dark again…
I’m afraid of the dark don’t go please.
What do you mean?
What soggy socks?
I don’t get it?
I have so many questions, please…please…
Oh no, late for work again, whew strange dreams all night, didn’t sleep well at all.
Time to get up.
No you didn’t !
You did not !
Yes you did !
Bad beagle, go get in your crate…go…right now missy !
I don’t have time for this….
Better go find something to clean this up with, (squeak)….(squishy)…now where’s that (squishy)…(squeak)…(squeak)…mop?
I better get these noisy “soggy socks” off first.
Naaaah… Who would believe it if I told them anyway?
With all my heart.
