 Prophecy and Poetry


I use to present to others
whom I thought they wanted to see
It never crossed my mind
it was OK to be me

I thought I'd have to be perfect
Special in every way
In order for others to love me
In order for others to stay

Little did I know
I fulfilled my own prophesy
The more falsehood I'd show
The more they couldn't get close to me

Then I began to understand
I had to let myself out
to let others in

The many secrets I carried
I asked God help me reveal
The more I showed my true self
The more alive I would feel

I saw that I was loved
just for being me
It was freeing to be real
It was joyful to be free

About the poem: I spent much of my life behind a mask of who I thought I was suppose be.
Now, in being honest with myself and others, even in times of weakness, is much more
attractive to others and freeing to myself. I have found that being real and allowing myself
to be human is a beautiful thing! Thank you Jesus for the freedom!

Ephesians 4:15 "Instead, we will speak the truth in love, growing in every way more and
more like Christ, who is the head of his body, the church.

John 8:32 "And you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free."
