I’m not a novelty toy to play with, whenever you like,
just to experience some joy.
I’m a child of God struggling to find myself in this place called world
and identifying myself as His pearl.
I’m not a dictionary you can pull out
To look up, clarify some words, find some meaning
And then put me back on the shelf for another evening
I’m just an inquisitive mind trying to
find the answers myself to being
I’m not some puzzle you can pull apart, admire some bits
Then fit me back together at your own wit
I’m unique, created for a purpose as God is gracious
I’m not a bank who you can withdraw from
misusing my generousity with such audacity
I’m only exercising my heart and gift of giving
to experience full living.
I’m not an object for you to gloat over to
satisfy your fantasies leaving me with the complexities of what and why?
I’m a godly woman seeking to identify herself with her maker
praying and hoping he will make this world and me safer.
