Further (a poem)

Further  written on 2/11/2018

You said I wouldn’t amount to much

You said things that invalidated me as such

You made me cry and cry

And you almost made me die


But you don’t know my Savior

You don’t know how far

He has taken me

And what He has created me to be


You don’t know the love

He has lavished upon me

And how far I’ve come

Because of the one from up above


And the loving friends He sent me

Because they believed in me

When you wouldn’t

And just couldn’t


Yes, you wouldn’t even believe

I would make it this far

But what you couldn’t perceive

Is that I made it further

  3. I would interpret the poem as you letting the people who never believed in you know how far you have come! This feels so close to my heart. Love the words you used and explaining the power of God in your life.
