Pieces of me


I won’t hide; my soul has been crushed before..

I won’t deny; my soul has given up before..

It’s been lifted too..

I have hated before

I have forgiven too..

I have loved!

I have been loved too..

I have been weak

I have been strong too..

I have hidden my face before

I have stood up too..

I have cried

I have laughed too..

I have faded

I have bloomed too..

Been wounded

Been helped to heal too

Been pushed

Been embraced too..

Been rejected

Been accepted too..

I have lost battles

I have won battles too..

I have lived

Through pieces of me!

  1. Wow the juxtaposition of actions and feelings really connected with me because there’s so much to us than the outside and you show this so powerfully. Beautiful poem ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Yes ma’am. We are blessed that through Christ we are made perfect. It brings me to tears everytime I think of how broken I am in my sin but more so the fact that Christ could take all of it upon Himself because he loves me/us. Very nice meeting you ๐Ÿ’ž

  2. I love the back and forth in this. It’s a call to look at every situation, part of us, and feeling that feels dark and negative and shine light into it. Very well written.
