Wear The Real You

Do not allow 'the real you' to be locked inside of you. Do not permit 'him/her' to be silent. You were not made to be caged in a zoo. Like the eagle, you were born to be free. You may carry 'the real you' around for decades, thinking that you have to be somebody, someone, something, other than and better than yourself. God forbid. Perish the thought. No one can be you better than you. You were not created to fit-in culturally. You were not made for conformity. Culture, laws, people, religion, and the like, cannot set you free. You were crafted by God 'for more'. You alone have the key to unlock and open the door to 'the more'. If you do not use the key that God gave you, you may very well take 'the real you' to the grave, having never truly revealed yourself and purpose to the world. You must not give those hidden treasures within you a passage way to the grave, having never released them from your outer shell. A shepherd boy once said "No" to a king who sought to adorn him with garments that did not fit. God has given you weaponry and garments 'suited for your mission'. They are well-fitting. Wear them. 120721PS

Another wonderful poem, a tiny tear shed too, hoping I’m using my gifts well, though at 57 I feel I’m only starting to see them again. Thankyou for this lovely write x

Hi Angela. I am touched and honored by your words. It took me a long time 'to find me'; but thankfully, God never looses track of us and what he has 'invested in us'. Blessings and MC.
