    To Be Loved, Is To Be Known

    To Be Loved, Is To Be Known
    written by Chris kinsley and Drew Francis

    I am a woman of no distinction. Of little importance, I'm a woman of no reputation to say which is bad.

    You whisper as I pass by and cast judgment until glances. Though you don't really take the time to look at me, or even get to know me.

    For to be known is to be loved.

    To be loved is to be known, otherwise what is the point of doing either one of them in the first place.

    I want to be known.


    I want someone to look at my face and not just see two eyes, a nose, a mouth and two ears

    But to see all that I am and could be, all my hopes loves and fears. But that is too much to hope for, to wish for or pray for, so I don't, not anymore.

    Now I keep to myself, by that I mean the pain. Pain that keeps me in my own private jail, the pain that's brought me here at midday to this well.

    To ask for a drink is no bigger quest, but to ask it of me.

    A man unclean, ashamed, used, abused,an outcast,a failure, a disappointment a sinner.


    No drink passing from these hands to your lips could ever be refreshing, only condemning. As I'm sure you condemn me now, but you don't

    You are a man of no distinguish to the outmost importance, a man with little reputation at least so far. You whisper and tell me to my face What all those glances have been about.

    You take the time to really look at me, I don't need to get to know me. For to be known is to be loved, and to be loved is to be known.

    You know me, you actually know me, all of me and everything about me.

    Every thought inside and hair on top of my head, every hurt stored up, every hope, every dread.


    From my past to my future, all I am and could be, you tell me everything, you tell me about me.

    And that what would be spoken by an other would bring hate and condemnation.

    Coming from you brings love, grace, mercy, hope and salvation.

    I've heard of one to come who would save a wretch like me and here in my presence you say I am he.

    To be known is to be loved, and to be loved is to be known.

    I just meet you, but I love you. I don't know you, but I want to get to know you.

    Let me run back to town this is way too much for just me.

    There are other brothers, sisters, lovers and haters. The good and the bad sinners and saints who should hear what you've told me, who should see what you showed me, who taste what you gave me, who should feel how you forgave me.

    For to be known is to be loved, and to be loved is to be known, and they all need this too, we all do, need it for our own.

    nice one

    For whosoever shall give you a cup of water to drink in my name, because ye belong to Christ, verily I say unto you, he shall not lose his reward.
    Mark 9:41


    When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory:
    And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats:
    And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left.

    Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:
    For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in:
    Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me.
    Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink?
    When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee?
    Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee?
    And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.
    Matthew 25:31-40


    who was/is the woman?
