Shame

For many years I walked in shame

With my head bowed down not looking anyone in the eyes

Shame for not being good enough

Shame for not being wanted nor loved

I sat in darkness wondering if I would ever be able to find light

Sat there wondering, if I would ever be worthy or enough

Then a voice whispered in my ear, " I am here."

The voice got louder and yelled, " I am here."

The voice grew even louder and said, " You are worthy. You are strong. You are forgiven."

Then the sun shone bright and the darkness was gone

He loved me

He wanted me

To him I was enough

Shame no longer lurked in my heart

I smiled and felt the warm rays of light on my skin

I smiled and yelled, " God I am back."
