TITLE: All ye, All ye, Come Free

I can see you,
But cannot find you.
You are hidden so deeply,
That I wonder if you can even find yourself.

What we see ,
Is who you want to be.
Only you donít realize,
That is who you really are.

You think you arenít good enough to be,
The person all of us see,
So you hide behind your sin,
And run when you think no one is looking.

You know God enough to know,
That you cannot hide from him.
But what you may not realize,
He is not watching with a judging eye.
He is watching with a broken heart;
Waiting for you to stop hiding,
Waiting for you to find him again.

And we wait,
As you play your game,
Hoping you will tire of it,
Praying you will find home base again,
Where all of us wait for you.
Olly, olly, oxen free.
All ye, all ye, come free.

I like your title, and how you made it similiar to the words of the game. The form of your poem didn't seem to have much pattern, but the message was clear. Keep writing.
