A Poem by Sylvia Chika


I know me

I’ve known me for a while now

I know what I’ve done

I’m not proud of me

I’m not proud of the things I’ve done

I’m not proud of the life I’ve lived

I’m not proud of the person I’ve become

I’m not so nice

I’ve done very ugly things

I’m not worthy to stand before you

You should hear what they say about me

The nasty names they call me

The way they treat me

I’m a sinner!

You don’t want someone like me

No one wants someone like me

I’m better off in the shadows of my past



Before I formed you in the womb I knew you

Before you were born I set you apart

I have loved you with an everlasting love

Turn back to me with your whole heart

I, even I, am he who blots out your transgressions for my own sake

    And remembers your sins no more

Forget the former things

    Do not dwell on the past

See, I am doing a new thing!

I will build you up again

I have called you by your name

You are mine

You have been honored

And I have loved you

Therefore I will give men for you

And people for your life

Fear not, for I am with you


All the words in red are words from The Bible


Inspired By the Holy Spirit
