Thanks Stu for creating this challenge and for the nomination. Sorry for the length of this post. I hope you enjoy!

A To Z

A bird in prison was where she once dwelt.

Big dreams that didn’t fit in the hand she was dealt.

Challenging circumstances kept her under the perpetual thumb.

Dodging life’s blows kept her emotionally numb.

Everyone shaking their heads and tsk tsk-ing away.

Forever doomed is what their actions seemed to say.

Greater, grander things were in store but she couldn’t see

Hiding from society’s scorn, wondering how to ever be free.

Ignited flames of passion would fizzle out so quick.

Juggling emotions would take over, making her soul sick.

Knowing that there must be an easier way but too scared to try

Lingering feelings of self doubt listening to every lie.

Managing one more come back, one more go.

Needing a Savior to come and rescue her so.

Over and over her searching, seeking heart started to plea.

“Please show me how You could ever love a wretch like me.”

“Quickly come help and keep me from drowning.”

“Recognize the call of my heart’s alarm sounding.”

“Savior divine come unto me, and change my family tree.”

“Transform and change me!”

Under His searching, ever watchful eye.

Victory was granted, her soul released a lifelong sigh.

Woman now where once there was a caged bird.

Xeric heart replenished with love, peace, and His word.

Yeilding her heart to the Lord from above.

Zeal and smile form ear to ear for now her heart was free to love.

My nominees: friendly warning…the letter x is a tough one.
