Poem by Jill Lemming



Destructive thoughts within our minds

can keep us in despair …

those doubts and insecurities

are not worth the pain they bear.


It’s sad to carry baggage

that causes grief and shame …

and in time we come to realize

we have ourselves to blame.


We can choose our way of thinking

and ask God to give us peace …

as we pray for a healthy attitude,

our negative thoughts will cease.


These human hearts are fragile

and sometimes we can’t see …

it takes some effort on our part

to find worth and security.


Don’t let those demons haunt you

and keep you in the dark …

just know that God, who formed you,

loves you just the way you are.
