Respect Me

Respect me.
I plead with my eyes
Willing him to understand
I am more than this
I have value

Respect me.

He doesn’t care
Utility only
Valuable until unneccesary

RESPECT ME

I yell silently
But he sees only weakness
Refusal to act

Respect me.

Tears wont come
Pain lashes my heart
But I wont let him win

RESPECT ME.

I didnt say it
I stared into darkness
Muttering hate until daybreak

RESPECT US.

I cried to them
To the ones who listened
Praying they saw the pain

Respect me.

Why cant we see it?
When others beg?
To be human
To be respected

Respect me.

Gideon

Like Gideon long ago
I place my fleece upon the ground
Hoping that as I asked it
In the morning it will be found

Hearing the truths God tells me
But holding on to fear
How could this be your choice?
I’m sure my future’s over here!

Learning to trust your words
And not just what I see
Trying to be brave
Sitting daily close to thee

Letting go of control
Putting my doubting fleece away
Help me to move forward, Lord
May Your word guide my way

Switch

It was you
For sure you
Now it’s my turn?
How did we switch?

Anxious thoughts
It was me
You wanted me.
Right?

When the change?
My vision altered
More regard
More respect

How did I become
The obsessed?
Wasn’t that you?
Loving the indifferent

But here we are
I sit
In admiration
You are incredible

Thank you
For listening
For caring
For being you

Homecoming

Rolling home
Staring through dirty windows
In silence dreaming
Of grand reunions
And forceful hugs
Of friends that feel like home
