I wrote a poem a few days ago that may seem a little strange. 🙂 I wrote it after our Friday night Bible study where we discussed emotions and pride. And what keeps us from obeying God.
I stopped when the snake threatened to appear.
I subdued my feelings – the anxiety, fear.
I hid all the past times I failed to control.
I buried the pain so no one would know.
I bantered the thought that I could be set free,
Let the words escape, let the snake-skin me
Be changed, resurrected to a soft-hearted soul
Who was not afraid to let anyone know
That a weakness resided deep down inside.
The snake, when I found him, was only my pride.
