Can You Love Me?

Can you love me?
With all my faults
angst
fear:
of rejection
of abandonment.
That plagues my soul
and seems to drown me at times
in the thick slushy sand.

I lay my soul bare for you to see
I lay it all down the good and bad
I show you where I am at
a broken woman slaved to sin
but saved by grace
Can you really truly love me
for who I am?

Can you love me?
Unconditionally
and see that I am trying
to be at peace
that I am trying to hold you up
encourage you, support you
whilst I prevent myself from
falling falling falling
into the pit of despair.

My hope is at the foot of the cross
my peace comes from God
but I am a woman slaved to sin
striving to live a better life
following the footsteps of Jesus
Can you truly love me
for who I am?

Can you love me?
Can you see that I am trying to be still
trying to be silent
Can you love me?
Can you really truly love me?
