What? You Really Don't Like Me?

What?  You Really Don’t Like Me?


Is there something about me,

 that you don’t like?

If you seen me today…

Would you want me to “take a hike?”


Perhaps it’s my personality,

 or a habit of mine.

You can’t stop talking about me,

much of the time.


Pointing out my faults to some

 of the people you know…

The words you say are actually

 eating at your soul!


Instead of loving me, the way

 God wants you to…

You bring up things about m,

 you’re not supposed to do!


Have you ever just once,

took the time to pray for me?

Am I someone you want to be with

for eternity?


STOP! And think about the damage

 you’ve already done!

Begin to pour out your heart

 to Jesus, God’s son!


May he help you to really LOVE me

 the way he does!

The cross he bore was for you and I…

Whom he loves!


May your thoughts about me,

make your heavenly father proud!

I hope to see you as we meet Jesus one day…

In the clouds!

About the Poet
I and my wife have 4 grown children and currently live in the Pacific Northwest. I've spent much of my life doing volunteer work in the food distribution for the needy among local churches. Many of the poems I've written are a reflection of times of adversity as a reminder of God's love and faithfulness. I've found many opportunities to share my poems with those who are hurting and discouraged. I'm thankful for the reports of many of the poems touching people's lives. I hope that the poems included on Wordchimes will touch and bless your life too!
