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)
