These poems are affirmations as I embrace my identity
As I rehearse every verse. I take off and put on the new me.
I’ve had a song about myself that does not reflect what I see.
Awakening into consciousness that with God I must agree.
I learned the right words. It was in my head and not my heart.
I didn’t commit to chewing His Word. I keep having to press restart.
Discovering revelations I felt honored. I felt smart.
Now requiring remediation, the lesson faded. I’m in the dark.
I’m privileged to get yet another chance to digest what He’s trying to teach me.
Stiff necked and over sensitive but God stalks me because he misses me.
I repeat the promises obsessively to stay present, to stay here, to stay sane.
Through it all when everything is gone, his Words will still remain.
