Hold Me Up

Updated on November 6, 2012

Hold me up

So I can see

glimpses of what

I can become.

I want to see my potential;

I don't want to see flaws;

I know my flaws too well;

I live with them;

You don't.

I need to be reminded of the good

Why must you only reveal the bad?

Hold me up so I can see;

Don't bring me down;

I have spent too long climbing this mountain;

A landslide of insults will not deter my ascent

Towards the beauty of heaven;

You think you are helping

You are wrong.

In a feeble attempt to prove your own worthiness;

You are only helping yourself.

Hold me up

Don't bring me down

To a level that no human deserves to be

I am better than that.

What exactly do you want me to be?

Do you want me to worship you?

That privilege only belongs to God Himself

Not you.

Hold me up

I want to look at myself through angel eyes

I want to see the beauty

of God's perfect creation.

Hold me up

So I can see

      So touching. So true. How often others prefer to put us down instead of building each other up. I find within the Christian writing community, we love and help each other. I don't feel competition, just helpfulness as I meet others.
