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.
