The Real Challenge

It mocks me.

I gaze in disbelief, trying to comprehend why I return. I always return, only to be scorned … rejected time after time.

I stare, wanting to connect; wanting to rationalize my reasoning, my behavior. It offers nothing in return.

I plead with myself, with God … with it.

Will I be shown no mercy?

I feel the heat of anger boil deep within me.

You summon me, then treat me as if I were a total stranger. Why?

Frustration builds.

I concentrate, using all my conscious energy to squeeze these manic thoughts from my mind.

Nothing changes.

Why do you torment me? I pound my fist into my hand. Why do I torment myself?

I turn my back on it.

I am powerless.

Depression consumes me. I no longer wish to engage my adversary.

Why do I allow this? Why can’t I get past this… I turn to face it. This small obstacle. I shake my head in disgust. It may as well be a wall.

I grab it, thrusting it high over my head, staring at the Godforsaken shape … wanting to destroying it, needing this treachery to end

I cannot. It will not change anything.

I return it to its rightful place.

I turn to walk away.

I mustn’t quit. I can conquer this blank piece of paper.


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

Ok, Ode to Coffee is really good, I think it is now in competition with this one. It is where I sit so often! Only it is the blank screen of MS Word mocking me.

Now, just change the blank paper into a cookbook and you may have a cooking/baking challenge entry! Hee hee.
