Who is with you?

Who is with you?

You are important

Despite the echoing distress

Caused by all the rest


Who whimsically abhorred you

And tried to make you feel small

Nice to say it didn’t effect you at all


But truth is – it lay upon you in layers

Layers and layers of thoughtless flippancy

When your self-image was in it’s infancy


Growing up with those layers of pain

Some remembered – some buried deep

Causing over-reaction exhaustion and sleep


You didn’t understand it yourself

When you were the person you didn’t want to be

Then you learnt how to make the devil flee


Weakest saint upon your knees

You exchanged your life for another

Now you are His ‘mother and His brother’

(Luke 8/21)
