I Saw My Soul on the Curb Today

I see his face
Haggard and dull
Dirty and done
I bet he smells
He doesn't care
He's given up
His cardboard sign
Says
Hungry.

I glance and wait
Anxious to pass
Green and go
Out of sight and mind
No eye contact
To taint my
Polished
World.

-Me



And also, some profound words from the love of my life:
It's amazing how you don't realize how much you are worth until you can admit that you're not worth anything
-Austin Brown

that quote from Austin is very true. It's not quite the "I'm worthless" that Christians usually speak of and leave it at, but the submission to God's will- that we depend on him for our very breath of life and existence- and in that we can find our identity in him. We can see that we are worth much, and live in such a way that is valuable to God's Kingdom.

I hope to see you again soon!
Love, LaShay

haha.. I forgot that was going to say "kat"...
I don't have a google account, so I was using Army on its Knees..and we had a mixup with this intercessor nicknamed Kat once and we never got it straightned out, so that's my explanation :)
