Why Me? A Poem

WHY?
WHY ME?
COULD IT REALLY BE?
AGAIN? ME?
WHY DOES EVERYTHING ALWAYS HAPPEN TO ME?

YOU!
YES YOU!
YOU WERE THE ONE CHOSEN!
COULD YOU IMAGINE?
IT'S YOU!
FROM EVERYONE ELSE!

THE KING OF ALL KINGS CHOSE YOU
TO BE THE ONE TO MAKE THE RIGHT CHOICE NOW
YOU HAVE CHOICE- EITHER RIGHT OR WRONG
YOU GOTTA PICK ONE
ONLY ONE
MAKE SURE UR CHOOSING WISELY

I KNOW IT'S HARD
THE BAD GUY COMES
HE'S CALLED THE YETZER HARA
HE TRIES TO MAKE YOU THINK IT'S THIS AND THAT
HE TRIES SO HARD
REALLY HARD
HE CAN REALLY GET YOU ANGRY
AND GET YOU REALLY UPSET
HE WANTS YOU TO ACT ILLOGICALLY

BUT-NO!
LISTEN TO THE VOICE INSIDE OF YOU!
THAT VOICE IS SCREAMING!
HE'S TRYING TO GET YOUR ATTENTION!
HE'S BEGGING YOU!
PLEASE!
MAKE THE RIGHT CHOICE!
THINK THE RIGHT THOUGHTS!
IT'S THE ONE ABOVE WHO IS TESTING YOU!
BECAUSE HE LOVES YOU!
AND WANTS YOU TO BECOME CLOSER TO HIM!

  1. I forgot to mention that I didn't make up this poem. A very special someone emailed it to me and gave me permission to post it.

  2. That voice inside me...at times I think it's not screaming at all. It's whispering. Sometimes I wish it would really scream.

  4. Wow. Powerful poem! So inspiring. Thank you!
    It's very difficult to remember, but it's so true. We should feel complimented that HaShem chose us to give the difficulties to - that means we have the potential to handle them and pass the tests with flying colors!
