May 3~9, 2013

 

I continue to seek approval

from those who live life with me

encounter me and constantly appraise

 

as if my worth were dependant on others

as if their valuations were of any value

 

broken-hearted

 

as all I am fails to meet their standard

as all I do or try fails, is ignored as dust

 

forgetting their opinion means nothing

either ignorance, praise or scorn

as long as God can say of me

 

“Well done and welcome”
