Ready

Poetry

I wanted so badly to be wanted and loved

That I readily accepted a lie

And now all this wasted time later

I’m still having to say good bye

I don’t wanna waste my time anymore

Don’t want to live in a fantasy

Don’t want to keep running to you

When I know in the end we’ll both leave

I’m ready to accept something real

Ready for attraction, kindness and decency

No more faking or playing, no hiding

Ready for some new company

Little Steps

Poetry

Every day I’m taking as many steps as I can

To get closer to my goals, closer to my plan

And I believe if each day I strive to progress

In time, each present challenge will find it’s rest.

Then a new season will be here.

All of this will be left behind.

And I’ll wonder how these answers

took so long to find

These Three

Poetry

Pride quiet yourself

You will not be entertained

Suffer silently through

your offense and inflated pain

Regret you’ve been replaced

This is no longer your domain

You ruled uselessly for years

Now turn and go on your own way

And last but not least

I am abandoning you fear

For all the missed opportunities

You caused me while here

1 Corinthians 13:13

And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.

Here with You

Poetry

Here I am safe

Keep me in your arms

As I clean out the messes

That cause me nothing but harm

Here I am loved

Let me never forget

As I keep walking further away 

From a broken past and regret

Here I am hopeful

Fix my gaze on You

As I search to know You more

Align my thoughts with Your truth

Luke 4:32

They were amazed at his teaching, because his words had authority.

Psalm 37:4

Take delight in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart. 

Redeemer

Poetry

You’ve given me freedom

A space to be me

It’s so what I’ve needed

To not live in guilt, to be free

Within these boundaries

You direct me in grace

Bringing healing and change

With every glimpse of your face

1 Corinthians 13:12

For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.
