raised


i wondered at love
and i wandered at sea
trying to unravel
who i used to be.

because ships have ports
and he has you
but what do i have
to come home to?

i had once been so fickle
and i broke what i knew

took the bread for a stone
and the false for the true.

so how did i grow?
when there was nothing at seed.
just brier and thorn
growing down inside me.

but it is so clear to me
from where i now stand
God raises a child
instead of a man.




hey so this is the part where i write a bunch of poetry that rhymes and freak out.

  3. WHUT.

    First of all. Rhymes. I applaud you.

    Second of all, this poem seems to describe me to the fullest right now.

    "Because ships have ports
    And he has you
    But what do I have
    To come home to?"

    ^ That.

    And yet.... I know what I have to come home to. Today and every day. I have the most beautiful Lover in the world who is raising me up to become more and more like Him.

    And I can't wait.
