I’ve had quite the day today with a roller coaster of emotions.
Honestly, I’ve had an unusually heavy last few months. Whenever I’m feeling overwhelmed, my vent is in writing. More specifically: writing poetry. I penned (or typed) this poem just a couple of minutes ago. If it speaks to you, please let me know! If not, well at least I feel better from venting ;).
Can’t breathe under countless glares
Lying empty from giving
All of me, but none of me
My true self lost to judging.
Pressure bares down on my soul
Will none understand my pain?
My pleasure lies in serving
Yet none accept my true gain
All they see are order rules
How dare I give my lifeline
My talents must match their own
Throwing my pearls before swine.
Hopeless to please human kind
My soul finds freedom above
There’s one who holds my pearls close
My gifts are His righteous love.
