TRUTH and SELF
By: Christina Martinez ©2014

TRUTH:
My life passes as swiftly
as the evening shadows
I am withering away like grass (Psalm 102:11)

SELF:
This life I’ve been given
is that of a test
One that I struggle to pass

TRUTH:
For He understands how weak
we are;
He knows we are only
dust  (Psalm 103:14)

SELF:
He knows I’ve been trapped
in my own self built hell
Chasing secrets and living
in lust

TRUTH:
I am tired of living here
among people who hate peace (Psalm 120:6)

SELF:
Their arrogance infects me
like a poisonous
disease

TRUTH:
Search me, O God, and know my heart;
test me and know my thoughts (Psalm 139:23)

SELF:
Reveal to me Lord, all that I am
all that I was
and all
that I am not

TRUTH:
You watched me as I
was formed
in utter seclusion (Psalm 139:15)

SELF:
You removed me from a world
of deception and delusion

TRUTH:
You’ve examined my heart
and know everything about me  (Psalm 139:1)

SELF:     
The anger, the pain, the hurt
and the ugly

TRUTH:
You made me; You created me
give me the sense
to follow Your commands (Psalm 119:73)

SELF:     
Keep me from getting wrapped up
in this crazy world’s
demands

TRUTH:
He calmed the storm to a whisper
and stilled the waves (Psalm 107:29)

SELF:     
You give love and forgiveness
a faith that saves

TRUTH:
I will call to You
whenever trouble strikes
and You will answer me still (Psalm 86:7)

SELF:     
There are no winds that will
blow upon me
that are not the winds of Your will

TRUTH:
My salvation and my honor
come from God alone  (Psalm 62:7)

SELF:     
And I know that this place
is my temporary home

SELF:     
A home that feels empty
everyone’s a stranger

TRUTH:
The Lord is my strength
my shield
from every danger  (Psalm 28:7)
