Barbara’s Poetry From The Heart Corner
A young child…
despair and fear gnaws
a worthless shell
no heart and soul
tugs pull me in many directions.
Seeks God’s help…
He draws me beneath His wings
cuddles, warms, provides security
grants refuge and confidence
shields and nurses my wounds
leaves a soul whole and free.
