Letting Go--Finding The Real Me: A Poem

Updated on August 5, 2015

When you feel like nothing is all you have left, and your world is falling apart; turn to God and be set free. This poem describes the great unfailing love of God and how he can bring us back to who we can be in Him. Without God I would be nothing today. He will show us the beautiful inside us all giving us the reasons to be happy and live in Him.


After a life changing hardship I wrote this poem to describe what I was going through and how God helped me heal and bring me back to happiness. Everyone will go through a hardship at some point in their life. Turning to God was a way for me to heal, and writing is another form of healing for me. By combining the two I end up with this poem.

Silently crying,

Falling to my knees.

Slowly dying,

To the old me.


I shiver and shake,

How long is this going to take?

Ever changing,

Always rearranging.


Then, I hear Your voice,

Just barely a whisper above all the noise.

It draws me to You,

And I feel Your arms drawing me close.


Telling me all the plans you have,

But I need to let go, to trust, to stand,

In Your mercy, love, and grace.

To feel the need for Your embrace.


So here I now stand

Reaching out for His hand

Together we go

Making this jump into the unknown


Christ is my strength, my solid rock

For what I have known has long since been forgot

My strength He will forever be

For without Him I wouldn’t be me.

      Little Light, you are very welcome. I have a passion for poetry, and to find people who benefit from it is my soul reason to continue to write. Funny you mention the song idea, my sister said the same thing when she first read it.

      Keep it up... and would definitely love to see it as a song one day. My brother writes beautiful songs. I love writing poetry but I don't have a gift of creating music. You have a wonderful gift. Keep using it.
