Unlocking My World

Locked in a world
That shuts You out…
Tries to scare me
And make me doubt.
I get so agitated
Or simply depressed.
I start to fear
You will love me less.
Yet You assure me
That’s just more lies.
Your love for me
NEVER DIES.
Holding the key,
You unlock my world,
And boldly proclaim,
“This is MY girl!”

You Know I Am Her

Serving You is my desire.
Loving You is my pleasure.
Just to know You
Is life’s greatest treasure.
You think so much
Of Your darling child,
Regardless of how much
She can be wild.
You tell her of
Your endless love,
And her home awaiting
With You above.
You know I am her,
And she is me.
You have come
To set us free.

Your Last Warning!

Do you not hear?
Do you not know?
I’m so tired of
You not letting go!
SCREEEEEAM!!!
I’ve had enough!
I will not run!
I just give up!
I give you over
To my God.
What I lack,
He’s got.
Courage, strength,
The voice to be bold.
You do not scare me
With your hold.
As He hath spoken,
He will command.
Let her go!
Don’t touch her hand!
Leave her body!
Leave her head!
Who you think you were
Is now dead!
My child is strong,
And I am stronger.
You will torture her
No longer!
You’ve had your fun.
You’ve had your mourning.
You’ve now been given
Your last warning!

Questionable Affair

If I’m hidden in a clue
Or covered by a mask,
Could you decipher
My needed task?
If I bend with the wind,
And go with the flow,
Would you know where
I intend to go?
If I fall from the sky,
And begin to fly,
Would you even notice
Me passing you by?
Alas I prepare
To ride the air,
And end this
Questionable affair.

Bearing My Burdens

How my soul drags
And drags me along with it.
I’m trying to fight
The urge to quit.
Ghosts of the past.
Worries of the future.
For all that I know,
I am more unsure.
Troubles arise.
Answers appear.
Why is it such a battle
To face doubt and fear?
Weakened by life,
I lay in despair.
Strengthened by Christ,
My burdens I bear.

Speak No Leak

Speak… no leak.
The clues must not be.
All the foes who seek
Will know how to weaken me.
Wink… think shrink.
Be careful not to expose.
One link could make me sink
If they are allowed to know.
Start… smart.
Don’t let the bright shine in.
Cart the heart
And secure the word within.
Roses… hoses.
Things outside can harm.
Moses poses
With all his Godly charm.
