poem ~ it's hard to watch you

It's hard to watch you
make this choice,
When I know you want more
in quality and a pure soul.

It's hard to watch you
try to figure this out,
When if you'd stop and think
you know what it's all about.

It's hard to watch you
as you wring your hands in two,
Acting like
you don't know what to do.

It's hard to watch you
hide behind the pain in your eyes,
It's just a matter of time
before you'll expose all the lies.

It's hard to watch you
create such a mess,
When you could have more
instead of this selfishness.

It's hard to watch you
settle for less,
Then what God's designed
as the absolute best.

It's hard to watch you
when I know what you want,
But you turned up your nose
to what integrity grows.

It's hard to watch you
say what you want,
And do the exact opposite
simply because you're tired of the hunt.

It's hard to watch
you destroy your life,
When with a simple adjustment
you'd land you a wife.

It's hard to watch you
make a life you'll regret,
When the promise of love
isn't the ultimate compromise.

It's hard to watch you
say you know you need God,
Yet when given the opportunity is given
you run from His love.

It's hard to watch you
live like this Friend,
I promise you there's more
of a better life not just in the end.

It's hard to watch you
as you attempt to live this life,
I know the difference
between honest and having to pay the price.

It's hard to watch you
but I tell you it's true,
Please stop and listen
you've got to choose truth.

It's hard to watch you
treat me so,
When all I've wanted
is the best for you bro.
