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!

The 5 Letter Ugly Word – Shame

So Much More

So much more

Eli Awakening

Good morning world!
It’s a new day!
What new things will I learn today?
Does God live in Colorado?
Where the bison say ‘moo’?
And why is it only at nighttime that I say hi to the moon?

Oh, what new adventures does today have in store?
What new places and things can I explore?
Mami, I can fit in the pantry and close the door.
Oh yes, I need to roll around on the floor.
Outside in the dirt is the best place to play.
That’s where I imagine best as I play the day away.

Mami, why do you sigh
when I tell everyone hi?
I have to yell very loud
cuz I’m small you see, my hi gets lost in a crowd.
I find all the people interesting
especially when their forehead is wrinkling.

I like to make people smile
see Mami, so many haven’t done it in a while.
I just love to laugh and wiggle
and it’s more fun when I make other people giggle.

Oh Mami the day is almost done
I think I’ve almost finished all my fun
and after my day I want to cuddle
read me a book so we can snuggle
and now it’s time to kiss you goodnight
as I drift off to sleep in happy delight.
For today was a good day
Mami I learned so much.
There were so many people’s hearts that I touched.

I went on so many adventures
discovered so many treasures.
Laughed until I fell to the floor
and made people smile, even the biggest bore!
Mami, I even gave lots of compliments!
Yup today was filled with accomplishments.

Ok Mami I’m going to bed now.
I’m so tired so I yawn then I bow
and I thank the day for the adventures I had.
Oh it gave me so much, I’m so glad.
Well Mami here I go
my twinkling, mischievous eyes close.
I smile as off to dreamland I float
because I know tomorrow is another day full of hope!
