Self Love 2020

Don’t try to be me

when there’s a galaxy

of personalities

to be

or not to be

there’s no question

on who you decide to see

in the mirror

when you stand there

and see the man (or woman)

clearer

and focus solely

on becoming holy 

in matrimony

with yourself.

You weigh more than i 2019

yet i am still not worthy

for love and grace 

but i am still deserving

 

my mind is dirty 

but You bring me in with such an embrace

yet i am still not worthy

 

i am always begging for mercy

“oh Lord please, i know You’re someone i always misplace”

but i am still deserving

 

and look, Lord, i am still learning

to seek Your most glorious face

yet i am still not worthy

 

i know our relationship is still not sturdy

and i know my past disrespect towards You can’t be erased 

but i am still deserving

 

and one day i will see those gates so pearly

with You on the throne, Your rightful place

yet i am still not worthy

but i am still deserving
