how do you describe 

I can’t find the right words to express my heart…
How do you describe…

listening to your siblings sing four-part music…

or listening to your two lil sweethearts sing a duet…

the longing to be with friends who are on the same page as you…

the feeling of belonging to everyone because you have many friends, 

yet no one, cause you don’t live with your family…
How do you describe…

the hopelessness of maybe not seeing dozens of friends ever again, 

and not even having the hope of heaven…

leaving a country that you’ve fallen in love with, 

where you’ve become a different person, 

leaving the place where you’ve poured out your life for almost three years…

finally feeling comfortable in a language, and able to truly communicate, 

only to have to leave when all of your friendships 

suddenly become open doors…
How do you describe…

listening to a 16 yr old girl talk of her mom moving away, 

and hearing the words, “She didn’t even say goodbye”…

sitting across from someone who was once a dear friend and attended church, 

but now is pregnant because of a wrong relationship 

and hasn’t committed to reconcile herself to God…

reading the paragraph online that says 

that Colombia is the top country for sex slavery

yet is the one that is the least active about doing anything to prevent it…  

looking into the eyes of a young girl on the street, and smiling, 

realizing that she is very likely a slave to her male companion, 

and when you glance back to look at her again, 

you see that she, too, 

was looking back at you…

all the pain and tears really can’t be described… unless you’ve experienced it yourself…
