A couple of my friends have been inspired me through their daily blogging in response to scriptures, songs, and feelings through poems and pictures. There have been a few songs over the past few days that have kindled something in me, and made me want to write my own responses…not all of them have worked out the way I thought they would. I have the feelings in my head, the ideas of what I want to get across…but I cannot find those perfect words that can convey what I really mean.
When I was a little girl
nothing held me back.
I could do anything,
be anyone I wanted to be.
I wasn’t afraid of trying new things.
These hesitations that keep me now…
Made by just one person,
I used to face my fears, monsters
full on, head first.
Where am I now?
Now I am running.
Running from what I’ve wanted for so long.
I’m wandering around in circles
like a lost little puppy without a home.
Searching for just one thing,
One to guide me through this next stage of life.
Like the night light I had when I was younger.
With this child like voice,
and child like strength
I’m calling out to you.
Come find me, rescue me
and take me home.
