Supposed

Written by Jacob Ibrag

The only way I can get close is if I

create the perfect world that’ll have you

want to. And even then, you won’t. I’m not

the soul that’s supposed to make you whole.

I’m just the boy that’ll help you get close.

  2. Yep supposing is often a delusion. I saw a stream in my soul this morning. It was expectations, expectations of others, of myself and it was not a living stream. Rather the stream of expectations in my soul was a current that carried me away from peace and reality into a world of obligations that trapped me. Such is what we suppose is right good vs. what is truly good. I appreciate Jacob that your seeing things clearly and sharing reality. It is helpful. I often need to remember that the Greek Ideal of perfection(that is what most of us hold as an idol and definition for perfection) is a marble statue that has no life. Wholeness is way better than perfection that’s your point I think and it is a very good one…

  4. This is good. I liked it because soooo many relationships are “Supposed.” This is acknowledging that not every love is supposed to or going to last, but is a step closer to what will. Or at least that is what it spoke to me. Good job!

  9. So often we rely on others to get us close to God when in fact it is only Jesus who can do that.
    Good one.
    KEEP THE LIGHT ON!

  10. Don’t sell yourself short, there IS someone special, saved, just for you, someone who’s right, who will reciprocate the love you have toward her, I truly hope that you’ll, find her some day…
