This poem is about Christians that are hurt and as a result they’ve built “glass” walls around themselves. There are many people who have not come to know Christ as their Saviour yet and among them are drug addicts. Drug addicts have a special place in my heart. If you know Christ, then let go of your bitterness, judgement, unforgiveness and begin to love unconditionally. You possess what can heal others… Drug addicts are in so much pain and they need love to start with. Don’t be a pathetic or apathetic person – let the love revolution begin!!!!

Jeremiah 46:11-12 (Amplified Bible)
Go up into Gilead and take [healing] balm, O Virgin Daughter of Egypt! In vain do you use many medicines; for you there is no healing or remedy. The nations have heard of your disgrace and shame, and your cry has filled the earth. For warrior has stumbled against and thrown down warrior, and they have fallen both of them together.

Jeremiah 8:21-22 (Amplified Bible)
For the hurt of the daughter of my people am I [Jeremiah] hurt; I go around mourning; dismay has taken hold on me. Is there no balm in Gilead? Is there no physician there? Why then is not the health of the daughter of my people restored? [Because Zion no longer enjoyed the presence of the Great Physician!]

No feeling…
Your passion died…
You observe.
You see their pain.

Inaudible cries
Inside they bleed
Still you sit in apathy
You refuse to connect

Who are you?
Why so numb?
Blinded by your own wounds?
Where is the living water?

Don’t look at yourself!
Fix your eyes on Love.
The force stronger than death.
Love overcomes meth.

Enslaved they are
And you!
You don’t give a damn!
Compassion escaped your heart!

They buy needles to numb the pain.
Your cold, glass, walls
Isolate healing from them.
YOU possess the balm of Gilead

You are pathetic in your apathy

    • Yeah love is the most powerful force in all existance. God is love. People can get delivered from demonic oppression/possession by being loved. People can be set free from depression, alcohol and drugs through the love of just one person – this has been proved through statistics.


    • Hi there 😉 Thank you so much for your kind words! Where did you find out about my blog? I also noticed that your name appears to be in some Asian language – might I ask, where are you based?


    • Thank you very much IP camera. I really have to make time to write more. There are a lot on my mind (or should I say heart) that I would love to share. Writing this blog is a learning process to me.


  1. Thanks I finally came to a website where the webmaster knows what they’re talking about. Do you know how many results are in Google when I search.. too many! It’s so irritating having to go through page after page after page, wasting my day away with thousands of owners just copying eachother’s articles… bah. Anyway, thanks for the information anyway, much obliged.
