Here is My Everything

Here is My Everything

A Chapter by TL Boehm
"

its a GODPOEM - if you don't like poems about faith - don't read it.

Here is my broken heart

Here is my shattered life

Here are all my faults and failures

As a woman a mother and wife

All the promises I've broken

All the hateful things I've said

All the life I left unspoken 

Wasting my breath upon the dead

 

Here is my sweat and sacrifice

Here is my blood and pain

My hollow effort to pay some price

Worry wasted for no gain

All the lies I cling to

All the truth I threw away

All the darker thoughts I bring you

Waste my steps and run astray

 

Here’s the sum of my existence

Here’s the hardest part to learn

This wretched pride and persistence

Stokes a bonfire set to burn

All I am at the end of me

All damage done that I could do

All that’s left is the love that sets me free

Everything comes from you

Author's Note

. “But who am I, and who are my people, that we should be able to give as
generously as this? Everything comes from you,
1 Chronicles 29:14
I don't often write a God poem - but when I do - I am often inspired by a specific bit from the Bible. Shared by a person wiser than me.

Here's the sum of my existence
Here's the hardest part to learn
This wretched pride and persistence -- great lines...these really grabbed me.

A heartbreaking write, but there is that shred of hope that I have come to expect from your work--those last two lines that speak of "love setting you free" made me smile. Strong, emotional and honest work.

Even though this is written from a woman's point of view, this sounds so much like me, except for the obvious things like motherhood and so on...I possess every one of these qualities, I've done every one of these things, I've experienced every one of these sentiments, and go on experiencing them over and over...I never like saying this cuz it sounds pretentious, but it sounds like this poem was written about me...I wish I wrote it actually haha I'm a spiritual person but I don't think I've ever actually written about, cuz frankly, I got tired of feeling looked down upon by most people when they learned of my beliefs...nobody really respects anybody else's opinions anymore on such matters, which makes me admire this one all the more...great work TL :)

thank you so much Sarah Lynn!
Beautifully written! Reminds me of surrendering. It's so easy to give away materialistic things yet the abstract can (for me) be challenging. Thanks for sharing!

We could probably all recite this poem and it would be accurate...well except for the wife part. Very nice Tammy.

There comes a day where we harvest ourselves I think, so to speak...and love, truly is all we have to hold onto...this is beautiful hon, your wording is intricately breathtaking x
