The tang of confusion, regret and hopelessness
runs through my lips.
But I also remember
that my heart should accept
I feel Betrayal like a zest.
Deception like a saucy aroma of mint,
stinging my soul.
What am I to do?
After being ignored so long,
and unimportant to you--
Now all of a sudden, I’m to be
the salt of your world!?
My sweetness is gone; I have no more!
But I’m forced to give more!
I’m tugged to give up!
I’m pulled to move out my dear heart
so that I can be wholesome.
How can I restore it, oh Lord?
Please guide me and show me how.
My heart is torn apart.
You were the salt of the earth and
Betrayal stung you.
Deception touched you.
But still you loved!
So much that you gave your life!
I will carry my cross.
I will be a sacrifice.
I will take my purpose and path.
I will serve you, Oh Lord,
and become the salt of the earth again…
“You are the salt of the earth, but if the salt has lost its taste, how shall its saltiness be restored? It is no longer good for anything except to be thrown out and trampled under peoples feet.”
