Barnabas

In the darkness,

in the shade,

where no one can see

I think ill of myself.

This is not right. This is not fair.

This is not love.

No son of encouragement

can own that title,

if it does not begin within.

  1. What we see , in you, is a vibrant, adventurous, loving, intelligent, creative human being. Hope that sinks deep within every cell and illuminates the knowledge that is felt within your heart. Encourage yourself with that, today and everyday.
    Know God has TRULY fearfully and wonderfully made you!
    You are an amazing person .. No one like you. Our world is better because of the love and light you are … And that you demonstrate.

  3. Praying Peace on your soul.. And Joy in your spirit today+
    May you feel the blessing that you are to others. (I can attest to that personally.)

  4. I read this poem again and again… Respecting the honesty.
    And the reflection.
    Truth in what is being said here, in that,
    Even in those moments , when we have self doubt… Reminding oneself of the need to reflect on your Godgiven worth, (and awesome person you are!),helps see it in others.
    Hard to put into words… But you did and the insight of these words is important.
