I Was Wrong

You looked at me and told me I was wrong
Everything I did was not good enough
Over and over I heard that same song

Hearing that message can be really tough
I started to believe the words you said
Everything I did was not good enough

Things changed when to the bible I was led
It helped me see myself in a new light
I no longer believed the words you said

God loves me I'm not a child of the night
I now see myself through my Savior's eyes
It helped me see myself in a new light 

You have your own problems I realize
Possibly one day you will understand
I now see myself through my Savior's eyes

Thankfully no longer under your command
Possibly one day you will understand
You looked at me and told me I was wrong
Over and over I heard that same song

    Hi dear friend..this poem touched my heart and soul..It so painful when someone critisize us over and over again..Definitely a mental abuse..a fine sharp type of bullying which takes time to heal If We ever make it to get out of that trap.Then the end of your poem so positive..Our father in heaven who loves us for who we are..Who shows us how special We are cause We are his very own beings..nd yes We our all special in our own ways.and if people in the past failed to recognize it..Its their loss

    At times like this indignation just threatens to take control...Wish I could say it was the righteous kind, but it isn't...HOW? How could someone belittle and say those things to you? I'm so glad you went to the source of where your value lies...in the Savior's Eyes...I'm disturbed...take care, Richard...A beautiful terzanelle...Victory...I've finally caught up with my posts. Have a good day! :)

    No worries Eileen, I was drawing on past memories. That was a very long time ago. I see your mamma Bear instincts kicking in. That is so sweet!

    Colleen! So great to hear from you. Sorry to hear you have not been well. You are still part of my prayers. Are you going to do any traveling with the fifth wheel?

    Indeed. I used to date a girl like this. The type to miss you just as much as she would wait for you to fail. Piercing criticims was her way of getting off. Pitiful, really. That said, there is a reason Karma exists...beautiful & poignant writing, Richard.
