Among the Ruins

I can't believe how long it's been since I last wrote something. I guess life just got the best of me. Things are still going great and I still love college life. Granted, I am most definitely counting down the days til the end of the semester. I am so ready for the holidays. Anyway, I don't really have much to write about, but I do have a bunch of poems I've written recently. Here's one of them. Enjoy.

Among the Ruins

Sitting among the ruins
Pondering my imperfection
And the extent to which
I’m only human
And broken

The sun beats down on me
But then I feel a breeze
Cool as it caresses me
And reminds me
Of Your grace
And the extent of Your divinity
Your perfect, perfect love for me
And I am lifted up on eagles’ wings
To think
That You love me
When I can’t even love myself

Oh how holy
And marvelous
Are You oh Lord, my God
That you pick up broken pieces
And teach me to love
And to see
And to be
As you set me
