Leah's Lament

Genisis 29 - 30

Unheard but by God, I, Leah, cry
of all to be pitied, the most pitiful am I

Deemed by love as unworthy, love's cruelest blow
In vain, I tried to change an outcome I already know

Six strong sons I bore you, bartering for your affection
Even they were favored less, sign of your rejection

I, desperate, devoid of beauty's treacherous charms
traded newly dead Mandrakes for a night in unloving arms

Rachel, sister, your beloved; and love gives no explanation
I am witness it can't be bought, sold, bartered or taken

Given freely is the only plane on which loves exists
Tho the unloved may cry, demand, threaten, insist

This truth so enduring, encompassing, unyielding
Even God does not exact love from a heart unwilling

The love of this man, Jacob, was never mine to obtain
Unfair as it may be, yet there is no one to blame
Except love, who never bothers to apologize or explain

Unloved but by God, I, Leah, was shown mercy and grace
For in the Messianic bloodline my son, Judah, has place

Yes, in this kingdom, for want of a husband's love, I thirst
My solace, God's Kingdom where the last will be first

If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
