I Know What It’s Like

 

I know what it’s like to feel all alone

I know what it’s like to be a stranger in your own home

I know what it’s like to have words to speak

Only to  have them not come out when our eyes meet

I know what it’s like to have your heart broken

By words that should’ve been left unspoken

I know what it’s like to walk the streets of NYC and feel like the only one there

I know what’s it’s like to have someone who loves you say they no longer care

I know what it’s like to  lose and to mourn

I know what it’s like see the joy of a life born

I know what it’s like to fake a smile

I know what it’s like to go the extra mile

I know what it’s like to be rejected

I know what it’s like to feel neglected

I know what it’s like to struggle with fear

I know what it’s like to shed a tear

I know what it’s like to feel like I don’t matter

I know what’s it’s like to wonder why I can’t hear the laughter

I don’t know what it’s like to be crucified on a cross

I don’t know what it’s like to die for all those who are lost

I don’t know what it’s like to perform a miracle

I don’t know what it’s like to be thought of as only mythical

I don’t know what it’s like to look down from Heaven above

I don’t know what it’s like to shed a tear for all those I love

I know what it’s like to be at the bottom of despair

I know what it’s like to feel His hand there

I know what’s it like to be forgiven

I know what it’s like to be still and listen

I know what it’s like to feel His touch and my heart leap in my chest

I know when I move on from this life in His home I won’t be a guest

I know what it’s like to experience His grace

I don’t know what I will do when I actually see His face

I know what it’s like to look the devil in the eye

I know what it’s like to thank God I am still alive

    I know how it feels to feel some of these things too. I can only imagine what God feels on a daily basis I can not imagine what is son felt like being nailed to the cross (but I feel it in my heart when i see it happening on a biblical movie) I know what it feels like not to be heard. I also know what it feels like to be redeemed and loved upon the greatest man on earth and that I keep in my heart daily because that love and forgiveness keeps me moving forward even when others around me let me down, dont hear me or dont forgive or dont believe.

      1. Nope, go over to James’s site and add it to the comments for this week or next. Or I’ll add it for you. But I’m going to add it to my playlist for the race this Saturday. I’m thinking it will be one of those that helps my pace when I need it most! 😀
