You have no idea… (a poem)

Ouch
that hurt
that was triggering
that made me feel sad
But…
then again
you have no idea
how much pain I feel
Because…
it’s concealed
hidden away
pushed deep down
out of sight
out of reach
no one can know
about this pain
inside me
But…
only one has an idea
only God knows

You have no idea

And you never will
even if I explain
myself
and tell you my
life story
you will never
truly understand
what I battle with
on the inside
everyday
without fail
it’s always there
a constant battle

You have no idea

I live
I laugh
I smile
I joke
I act like it’s all okay
But…
deep down
it’s not
at all
I want to die
some days
I have no more strength
to fight another day
But…
somehow I find it
God gives it to me
enough strength
to make it through
another day

And that’s why
You have no idea


I started this battle alone, and I will continue to fight it alone with God because:

I went on this journey of
comparison,
hating myself,
not seeing or feeling God’s love,
feeling defeated,
and unworthy.

But, when I finally realized
how much God truly loves me,
and cares for me (Matthew 6:26-34);

I started to see the world through His eyes,
the beauty around me in nature helped me
realize how much God loves His creations.
And, if He loves the trees, & animals;
How much more could He love me?

And, when I discovered that God loves me more than the trees He created,
I truly understood His amazing love for me!


Thanks for reading! I hope this reminded you that God is always with you, & He cares for all His creations equally (your past does not & will never change His love for you).

YOU ARE…

A poem about your true identity!


The enemy will tell you that:

You are unworthy
You are alone
You are never chosen
You are ignored
You are untalented
You don’t belong
You are hopeless
You are stupid
You are ugly
You are weak
You are not valuable
You are nothing
You are not important
You are neglected
You are hiding
You are afraid
You should give up
You are a default
You are a failure
You don’t deserve anything
You are an outcast
You have no friends
You are invisible
You have no one
You are unwanted
You are worthless

But, God tells you that:

You are worthy
You are valuable
You are His beloved child
You are unique
You are kind
You are chosen by the King
You are talented
You are filled with hope
You are full of faith
You are smart
You are funny
You are strong
You are beautiful
You are important
You are everything to the Creator
You are accepted
You are brave
You are bold
You are His first choice
You are deserving
You are wanted
You are popular
You are worthy

And, most importantly,
YOU ARE LOVED!


Thanks for reading!
I hope this reminds you of your true identity, and encourages you to live in truth & freedom!

Fitting In!

You try & try, over & over again, to fit in with the world.
You think you’ll be happy when everyone likes you.
You just want to feel part of something!
All you want is to feel wanted.
You want to feel happy & loved.

So, you try & try, over & over again to fit in.
You try everything they like.
You do what they do.
You fall into sin & you act like them.
But what happens is not what you hoped for!
All your trying to fit in has actually made you feel unworthy of His love.
You’ve sinned so much that now you feel too disconnected from Him.
And, all of it wasn’t even worth it because you still don’t fit in. 

You tried & tried, over & over again, & nothing changed.
Things actually got worse.
You still don’t fit in, & you slid further away from your goal.
All you want now is to erase the past & start fresh.
You realize as long as you fear Him, you’ll never fit in.
You will always feel guilty, & people will feel awkward around you.
You’ll never truly be one of them because you have Him on your side.
And, He is always looking after you. 

Stop trying & trying, over & over again to fit in.
Trust Him, & experience His love & forgiveness.
That’s when you will feel true joy.
A joy that the world could never offer.
He chose you, & He will never give up on you.
You are, & you will forever be, His child. 

If the world is not where you fit in, just remember that you are part of a greater & better family. So, stop trying to fit in with the world, they have literally nothing to offer. He can offer you so much more than the world ever could!

No one will ever care about you more than Him!

1 Peter 5:7

I need you!

Yes, you! I need YOU! Don’t give up now!
This poem is for anyone out there going through a tough time in life right now.


Please, don’t do it!
I know you’re tired!
But, just focus on staying healthy, and keeping your mind fit!

I know it’s exhausting!
It feels like the only way out.
But, have you tried dancing, or singing?

You hear people say:
“Oh, It’s just a phase, you’ll get over it”.
But, we both know, that was so yesterday.

Every time something good happens to you,
You feel totally unworthy of it.
But, that’s definitely not true!

You are AMAZING!
You are IMPORTANT and WANTED!
Things are CHANGING!
(for the better)

Life’s not always great.
Trust me, I know!
But, don’t be afraid!

You think: “This is rock bottom.
It can’t get any worse.
I probably can’t even make it to next autumn!”

But, please, erase those thoughts from your mind!
I NEED YOU – I will be your friend and give you the support you need!
I promise, I will always be kind!

So, if you’re at rock bottom now,
The only way to go is up – To the sky!
There may be rain now, but when you get up there, you’ll see a rainbow!

So, continue to hustle everyday!
Become better and happier!
Turn the black darkness to white brightness; or at least semi-bright gray!

BE OPTIMISTIC!

Persevere!
Never give up!
I need you here!

WE need you here!
Please stay!
The world needs YOU! – Are we clear?

So, will you stay?
And persevere?
And hustle harder everyday?


I sure hope you do!
And, I know many others do to!
So, it’s decided.
You’re staying!
Trust me, you’ll look back on this day, and remember that you succeeded,
In your biggest roadblock, you decided to stay!
And, you hustled even though you didn’t feel like it!
You didn’t give up
Even during your darkest days,
And that’s something to be SUPER proud of!


Thanks for reading!
I hope this poem encouraged you to keep getting better everyday, and to keep learning & growing each and every day!
