Shame Poem

Deep in darkness you stay
Trying to make me lose my way
In the recesses of my mind you rest
Always telling me I don’t deserve the best
Reminding me of all of my regrets
and of all my failed tests
An invisible weight, you rest on my shoulders
turning my heart colder and colder
you cultivate and grow bitterness in my soul
never allowing God to make me whole
so today I tell you shame
you can no longer remain
in my God I am redeemed
and He is giving me back all I ever dreamed
In Him I am made whole
in Him I am bold
I’m a failure & unworthy of love are the lies you told
in Him I’m everything and more
in Him I’m redeemed forevermore
He is my light in the darkness
He loves me despite my life’s mess
Redemption, healing & wholeness over me He spoke
now my life is forever filled with hope!
