My True Self



My True Self Poem.

It was fun being dressed as the little elf,
But then I returned to be myself,
My true self I cannot hide,
For it is in that self God does reside.

People come and people go,
But myself she is always there I know!
If distressed or feeling alone,
My true self always knows the way home.

God patiently waits on my coming home,
So He and I can be alone,
My true self I cannot hide,
For it is in that self God does reside.

About this poem

A funny little poem as I was dressed as an elf last Christmas for a voluntary children's event. The event was fun and then I decided to write a poem about my True Self. A self that can only be found by connecting deeper with God. Kim Hamilton

    Wow, what a beautiful and thought-provoking poem, 'My True Self'! The imagery of returning to your true self and finding solace in God is truly inspiring. The rhyme scheme flows well and adds to the overall message of self-acceptance and divine connection.

    One suggestion for improvement could be to explore more metaphors or details to further enhance the emotions and experiences described in the poem. This could help create a more vivid and engaging picture for the reader.

    Overall, this is a wonderful piece that encourages self-reflection and spiritual growth. Keep up the great work!
