The crashing of mistakes
Causes every one to look.
I try to find an answer
Thatís not written in a book.

I stumble all around
Make myself appear a fool.
Tearing down all the things
I thought were very cool.

No matter how hard I try
I hear the people laugh.
But Jesus is protecting me
With His rod and with His staff.

I find that Iím self-conscience
As I stand before the Lord.
Stuttering a loss for words
I bow before His sword.

He covers me with His wing
He helps me stay in line.
He shows me how to live my life
He tells me I am fine.

We donít need to be ashamed
When we need a helping hand.
We can lay it at Godís feet
He does understand.

So donít be so red faced
As you blunder all around.
Our father sees beyond that
Youíll never see Him frown.

You need not feel ashamed
Come get down off the shelf.
The awkwardness will go away
If you only be yourself.

Good job. I like the picture of Jesus with his rod and staff, we are his lambs.

"if you only be yourself" says a lot. With God, we don't need to pretend or put on a show. He knows us too well for that. Good job.

Very nice poem of truthÖGod created us, so we should never be ashamed of who we areÖall we should ever be ashamed of is not appreciating God. Good job on this!
