"Leave me alone."
Jesus sighed.
"I can clean you up. I can protect you."
His child curled up in to a tighter ball.
"I don't know why You're still here." he barked.
Jesus opened His mouth, but there only escaped a soft groan.
"I can be your Shepherd. I can watch over you."
The child grew irritated.
"Look, just shut up already. I don't need anything, especially from You. Can't You get the hint?"
Jesus looked down and took one step towards His child of the night.
"I can hold you. I can heal you."
The child flinched.
"Stop...stop it..." the child whispers, fighting back tears. "Go away. Go away!!!"
Jesus jumped slightly from the tone in His child's voice. He watched as His child rose slowly, his legs battered. The child fell because of the anguish he felt in his legs.
"Please." Jesus said as He extended His hand towards the child.
The child didn't even look up. He crawled away from Jesus as fast as he could, only to hide behind a wall further from where Jesus was.

He wasn't giving up.

Jesus took another step closer towards His child of the night.
"How long do you intend to do this, child?" He asked.
The child was hesitant.
"Until You get the hell away from me!" the child replied with a huff.
Jesus took another step towards His child.
"When do you expect for this to happen?" He asked.
"Now!!!" the child screamed.
Jesus heard His child sobbing wildly. His own beautiful tears ran down his cheeks.
"Dear child..." Jesus said as He took another step. "Let Me love you."
The child continued sobbing. Jesus slowly walked towards him, making sure He wasn't frightening him. When a Jesus reached the wall, He knelt down and touched it tenderly. The child felt a tingle down his spine.
"Let Me love you." Jesus whispered against the wall.
The child heard loud and clear.
"I have so much love for you, My son. So much I want to give to you."
Jesus slowly slumped against the wall and let His tears run down His beautiful Face. He heard His child sniffing.
"Stop running. Stop hiding. When do My eyes leave you? When have I stopped caring?"
He heard His child wipe his endless tears.
"I love you, My boy. My boy..." Jesus smiled, His tears not ceasing. "You are My own. And I would never abandon you."
Jesus looked at His hands. The child shifted his body.
"I have so much love for just you, child. Even if you were the only human living on Earth, I would be more than willing to die for you."
It was silent.
"I don't care how badly you want Me away." He said strongly. "I don't care how long I have to sit here and wait. I will. No matter how long it takes."
Silence.
Jesus folded his hands and looked up. He then heard cold hands against the stone floor. His child was crawling towards Him and finally collapsed in His lap. Jesus looked at His own and more tears, no longer tears of sorrow, ran down His Face.
"Help me..." the child choked out, clutching Jesus' robes. "I am...so frickin sorry..." he whispered as he started to weep violently.
Jesus smiled softly and caressed His child's thick and curly light brown hair. Darkness tried to dominate the young boy's body, but Jesus thrust His hand out and it immediately vanished. He then slowly wrapped His arms around His child and stood.
"I'm sorry..." the child whispered, clinging on to Jesus' robe.
Jesus said nothing, but smiled as He brought His child back in to the light.
No matter how many times you want Him to go away, He won't. No, He doesn't tolerate sin. But that doesn't mean He doesn't tolerate you.
Much love to all of you.

That's a very interesting and true way of thinking. Innocent but harsh, immature and wise. Well done.

I would like to have you in my group. We specialize on the truth, no matter how harsh or blinding or beautiful. Let me know if you want to join, I'll send the invitation then.

I think that we all have been that small child, battered, bruised, and full of darkness at one point in our lives. I wonder how many people will try to find the light and heal...

His immense love and compassion for us ALWAYS brings me to tears. Whether its a lot of tears or just a stray, that love is something so powerful that humans can't even begin to fully understand it.

It's so very touching, knowing that Jesus will always love us even if there are people that push him away. And then we realize we need Him, and he's always there to accept us.

I love this poem.It makes me think about how I haven't completely believed all my life. When my father died I hated G*d. Now I accept it and go on loving him. I truly do love this poem. It's very emotional. It's a shame you used Frickin... The poem is to pretty for such a word...
