You are beautiful forever--
the core of who you are..
still wholly uncorrupted,
is made in the very image of God--
It is intertwined with your flesh
so that your flesh may become healed.
But your flesh is immersed in
the stupidity, placed there by others, not you.
But you are the one that still chooses
to believe its ******-up message--
The one that says it will not work
or that it's all too much
or that no one cares, anyways
or that you are not worthy
of the magic that is in you.
The relational part of your own healing
that already exists within you
will come to you from those
who love you enough
to want to tell you the truth--
That the message your traumatized flesh, carries
is nowhere near the truth, but instead
is immersed inside of the lie.
I tell you the truth, in response to your
acknowledgement of my faith in you
and you respond by treating me as if
you have no value for me whatsoever.
What tells you inside of yourself
to respond that way?
So, I make a play for you again,
not to make you mine..
but to remind you of who you truly are.
All of the healing you will ever need
is already inside of you.. through the
Image-bearing nature of the very core
of who you are. Its deep ache to permeate
your broken flesh is held at bay
by Love's beautiful choice to yield
to your own freedom of autonomy
Because love, without freedom
is not love at all--
but only control.. with a smile.
I weather your storms
because not even your own lack of
believing in yourself will ever
stop me from believing in you.
--And yes.. you are at times difficult--
sometimes to such a degree, that the dream
you actually are to me.. at those times
can feel to me as if instead,
like a bad nightmare..
But that is only the stupidity, of your flesh
and your own temporary stupidity of actually
believing that, in itself.. as if to be life..
and as if to be you.
You are my beautiful, forever
that will never, ever change.
One day you will see, beautiful girl.
I know that one day, you will see
“I said, ‘You are gods;
you are all sons of the Most High..’"
