A Designer Original

When I seek to understand,
I’m left with more
Questions,
Not about who You are
But about who I am.

While I long to be understood,
I’m left wondering
Why
I care so much about
What they think of me.

You say I am a
Designer Original,
Unique even to
Your hand.

You say I am
Yours.
You call me
Mine.

I often forget.

When I “feel” pain from unfair
Judgments
By those who don’t see me
For Whose I am…
Remind me, Lord.

When I’m pushed aside
And left in the cold
To wonder what it is
About me…
Remind me, Lord.

Truth.
It sets me
Free.
You.
You set me
Free.

When I seek to understand
And am left with more
Questions,
Not about who You are
But about who I am…

Remind me, Lord.
