Lord, I don’t fit in

I never will

I’m a stranger here

Among the hills


I’m an alien

So far from home

I’m a one way ticket

Desert plains I roam


I’m a nomad searching for a better land

I’m a circus freak to the elitist man

I’m a joke and a whisper

I’m a second thought


But you say that I’m loved

The proof is the cross


Lord, my heart is heavy

I’m covered in dust

But I am who I am

I’m not who I was


I’m a soul that’s thirsty

I’m a child at heart

I’m a fragile piece

I’m Your work of art


I’m a dreamer enamored by amber waves of grain 

I’m a fool to the wise, but I know what I’ve gained

You’re my guarantee

You’re my promise of hope


For you call me Your friend

And You’ve made me Your own.

“Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” –John 14:6

“Because of His love, God had already decided to make us His own children through Jesus Christ. That was what He wanted and what pleased Him, and it brings praise to God because of His wonderful grace. God gave that grace to us freely, in Christ, the One He loves. In Christ we are set free by the blood of His death, and so we have forgiveness of sins. How rich is God’s grace, which He has given to us so fully and freely. God, with full wisdom and understanding, let us know His secret purpose. This was what God wanted, and He planned to do it through Christ. His goal was to carry out His plan, when the right time came, that all things in heaven and on earth would be joined together in Christ as the head.” –Ephesians 1:5-10(NCV)

“So Jesus said to the Jews who had believed in Him, “If you abide in my word, you are truly my disciples, and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” —John 8:31-32

  1. Another great poem Tina!! I love the part where you said I am who I am, I’m not who I was. …there’s something powerful about being able to declare that!
    I could hang onto every word from this poem❤️

    1. Thanks for the comment, Bridget. ☺ I’m wondering where people get all the cute emojis. I found a sheep on my tablet!🐑 It’s kind of hard to tell that’s a sheep. ☺
