I just read this and want to say I can really relate to it. Been in that valley called "BUT" many a time. The Lord has delivered me from much discouragement and self abuse. Only HE could have done it. I love how you end this by bringing us back to faith.
It was so kind of you to read my "Confession" and leave such an encouraging comment, that I had to come calling and get a bit acquainted! I see you're a new addition to FaithWriters, too. I hope you're having fun finding your way around here.
You have the heart of a poet, I see. You know how to express emotion that resonates with the reader. Plus that you know a secret: leaving your reader wanting more! God bless you, Shann! I hope to read more from you.
This is a beautiful touching poem. I loved the vulnerability and honesty in it.
There's some beautiful imagery: "mind's dark curtain" "scars on the surface and scars no one can see."
To me the loveliest part of it is the progression - doubt in the 1st verse turns to certain faith in the last 2 verses.
You defintely have a talent for connecting the reader with you as an author. Your heartfelt expressions are something I believe every reader can identify with, therefore making this poem as much for them as for you. Well done!
