Well Worth It

Life is hard.

When you become friends

With someone,

You make yourself vulnerable.

Will they lift you up

Or weigh you down?

Will they cause you to soar

Or anchor you to the ground?

When you choose to love,

It comes with all the same risks

Multiplied infinitely.

And a family?


The ups and downs.

The joy and sorrow.

The laughter and tears.

The whispers and screams.

Reaching new heights

And plummeting out of control.

It isn’t only what others do

To and for us.

It’s what we do.

The challenges are great.


When we’re not being loved.

Comfort others

When our hearts are breaking.

Doing what needs to be done

Even when we feel like

Running away.

Is it worth it?

Isn’t there an easier way?

Life is hard,

But the benefits of relationship

Make it well worth it.

Be devoted to one another in love (Romans 12:10, NIV).
