HARD

It’s so hard
When you’re trying so hard
And it doesn’t just look hard
Or sound hard
Or feel hard
It is H-A-R-D
HARD is such an understatement
Because it feels . . . 
Immeasurable, insurmountable, 
impossible
It doesn’t show up on your radar
It doesn’t give you fair warning
It doesn’t wait until you are 
ready
It comes at you fast and HARD
No dilution, no chaser
All you can do is take it
You take what’s coming at you
You dip and dive as much as you 
can
You tuck and roll when you have 
to
You may even want to check out 
altogether
But you don’t . . .               
You stand your ground
You keep your feet firmly planted on the ground
And you point your head to the 
sky
Because HARD is not in God’s 
vocabulary
So we’re really, just talking 
about life
