Feeling not good enough,
Try as she may.
Holding in her tears,
With a smile on her face.
Trying not to let him hinder her,
He’s only one upon the earth.
She knows in her mind,
He doesn’t measure her worth.
But it’s in her heart,
Where the pain grows stronger.
A tree watered by his acid words. Disapproving glances make her smaller.
Trying to remember the truth she has adopted,
Within the heart God gave her.
Forgetting momentarily, her gained wisdom,
She lets him destroy her happily ever after.
She’s more than enough,
A beautiful child of the living God.
By God’s everlasting, healing love.
