May 3-9, 2013


I continue to seek approval

from those who live life with me

encounter me and constantly appraise


as if my worth were dependent on others

as if their valuations were of any value




as all I am fails to meet their standard

as all I do or try fails, is ignored as dust


forgetting their opinion means nothing

either ignorance, praise or scorn

as long as God can say of me


“Well done and welcome”


I Continue to seek Their Approval
