Worthy of a Crown?

There was a time

when I knew my true worth

and nothing could change that

nothing on earth

until came the day

that I tumbled down

and somebody took

my beautiful crown.Screen Shot 2020-02-20 at 9.54.24 PM

 

I once was a princess

with so much power

I’d enter a room

and others would cower

my confidence great

an unyielding force

I commanded myself

never falling off course

I knew I was worthy

of the looks I would get

and my value reflected

everyone that I met

I’d see in their face

that they were impressed

it was fuel to my day

each one was a test.

 

And then came the day

away went the crown

and confident me

just had to sit down

cause two little children

came into my life

my everything changed.

woman became wife.

 

The princess, erased,

a new person came in

Cinderella, serving,

my light grew so dim

 

All of my focus

on family

nothing was left

for Cinderella, me

 

Each day became

scrubbing, cleaning

pajamas all day

mind left a’reeling

spinning around

like a silly ol’ top

’till the day I looked

and I had to stop

the reflection I saw

was sad and so dim

I forgot me

my face, now, so grim

my shoulders slumped down

so worn and so lost

who was I now?

someone who tossed

out value, out truth

threw away who I was?

all to achieve

and scramble because

I didn’t know

that princess could stay

I pushed her so far

made her go away?

 

I gave up on me

to give them my power

and what was left

was a sad little scour

of meager ol’ me

I only got scraps

all of the special

was put in their laps

too many years

of forgetting love

caring for me

God’s treasure above

 

1 Peter 3:3-4

“Do not let your adorning be external — the braiding of hair and the putting on of gold jewelry, or the clothing you wear — but let your adorning be the hidden person of the heart with the imperishable beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which in God’s sight is very precious.”

 

 

He made me a princess

for a reason, and so,

I need to get back

to that personal glow

the one that lights up

a dark, lonely room

the one that abolished

sadness n’ gloom

 

I‘m glorious

I. am. strong.

I’m exactly, just me

Now focus on

sweet energy

and I’ll save the best

for me everyday

Yes, that will reflect

in beautiful ways

yet better, because

new Christian rays

spark deep down inside

from beyond my heart

fed by the Spirit

authentically start

a reflection of who,

I really am

not a pathetic crust

an absolute scam

 

I wasn’t made

to sit in a slump

I wasn’t made

a pathetic dump

I wasn’t made

to sit in the back

I wasn’t made

to linger and lack

I wasn’t made

to follow a sheep

I wasn’t made

to stupidly keep

the value and worth

of how I was made

I am much more

the price that was paid

There on the cross

The VOICE – Jesus cried

Go! and REJOICE

or I have just died

for no other reason

to sit and just wallow

and focus on sad

now get up! and swallow

down all the doubt

and pathetic ways

that sad life is gone

the princess now stays

Proverbs 31:26

“She opens her mouth with wisdom, and the teaching of kindness is on her tongue.”

 

I am HIS child

love ever more

and right from this moment

I settle the score

Life will be better

seeing me this way

actions speak better

than words any day

 

And, oh yeah, that crown

was really just me

sadly robbed

by insecurity

a mind so confused

by sweet intentions

but now resolved

by intervention

 

I am God’s child

designed with intent

every atom inside

eternity spent

time has no power

when you speak of creation

it transcends our minds

no verbal translation

could ever convey

the overwhelming power

when you take away

minutes, seconds, hours.

 

God is I. AM.

He is every-thing

the essence of life

He purposely brings

each of us here

are you WORTHY of love?

are you kidding me now?

Look now, up above

and say to the LORD

I’m sorry, I lacked

I’m sorry, I forgot

I’m sorry, I stacked

up all the trash

upon my own head

thank you so much

for the life I have led

I will remember the value

of what God has made

I am worthy of love

I am bought, I am paid

by His ONLY Son

so obedience will

be what my life is

every second I fill

by responding to Him

and His love for me

I AM His Princess

So, that’s what I will be.

Proverbs 31:30

“Charm is deceitful, and beauty is vain, but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.”
