    Let me be emptied of self
    and fill me with worth
    been searching for so long enduring the hurt
    so many sides
    untold stories
    seeing these eyez yet build to the glory
    if only
    in an effort to address the lack of self esteem
    the shattered dreams
    these lives could live
    better than than this Lord please give me a chance
    and empty me of carnal weaknesses
    so much goes unsaid
    November a time to rememeber the souls that gave so we might be saved
    I vote change cause it isn't too late
    Lord rearrange my thinking
    cleanse me from infirmaties
    Sometimes the lies sink deep
    caught up in the hype media wave and craving to be seen
    lost with no identity
    cleasne me Lord
    cause I know NO other life security
    and for those who struggle behind the scenes
    I see you
    And life means moere than just coping
    endless hope
    touching others as we grow

    I particularly liked the way you ended this, trying to give others hope, fills a person up in so many ways. Flow on.

    :wave: Haaaaaaaaaaaay Sister RealEyeRealize :wave:

    Sister, this is a beautiful peace! It says a lot when a person is asking for themselves to be fixed ... far too many of us are pointing fingers at others ... where this peace takes me is very special, seeking high achievement for self ... we should all be so blessed as you!

    i :bowdown: to you Sister ... keep teaching us ... keep sharing the truth!

    Much Love and Peace!

    :heart:

    Destee

    Forgive me for taking so long to reply.
    The only reason is constant work,
    you know redeeming the time
    You know life is so fullfilling
    with it's depth, width, length, and height
    It's joy's and pain.
    All to be cherished.
    Please sister destee, in your creation I humble myself.
    More than honoured to be so favoured.
    You might have them hating me with remarks like that.
    But let light shine.
    Nuff Luv

    me too...i missed it..and yet i didn't cause here i am
    giving praise to you for recognizing...and seeking
    the bible says .."......thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself....."
    and you got to love yourself before you can love another..
    and thats where your poem took me...seeking self knowledge..self love..
    the victory has got to be yours..
