Neat little poem. I enjoyed it.
I particularly enjoyed the unique rhyme scheme in this one! Powerful thoughts, too...this was my favorite stanza which says very plainly that we don't really live until Jesus is in control:

Foe took my life away -
Felt empty and alone.
Until I let God work inside,
Revealed what I had tried to hide -
In this, His love and grace was shown.

Well done. :-)

This is super--the unique rhyme scheme and metrical pattern, and a message that teenaged girls need to hear. I'm clapping madly!
This intriguing and beautiful poem grapples with a contemporary, real life struggle. You take your reader to the depths of need and to the heights of God's deliverance! So powerful and so eloquent!!

My favorite is the last stanza. Awesome poem of healing, for those who need to heal.

A ministering poem to the soul, and strength to the weary.

Poignant, encouraging, tender ... and precious. :)

Yes, my favortie stanza was the last. I think that a poem should always have a strong ending and you accomplished that!
