How Do You Feel

A Poem By Madalyn Clare // 10/21/2017

I want to know you
So I deflect to you,
But hopefully, you’re not
Uncomfortable.

I want to make
A new friend,
And so I try,
But I don’t want
To be a burden.

Outside, it’s
You, you, you,
But I can’t tell
How much I think
Me, me, me.

Why not just take a leap?

How do you feel?
How are you?
Let’s turn the
Paradigm
And make this
New
Friendship
True.

A good turn
Earns
Earnest kindness,
I’ve figured.
So let’s do this.

A good word
Earns
Earnest smiles,
I’ve found.
You have a beautiful one.

Joking like
Old friends
Fifteen minutes
In,
I can’t tell you
How much I
Doubted this.

You’re actually
Amazing.

We aren’t different at all.

You’re nervous too.
You’re scared too.
Let’s find
A different
Paradigm
And make this
New
Friendship
True.

A good word
Earns
Earnest smiles,
I’ve found.
You have a beautiful one.

Great job!

“The gospel alone is the power of God unto salvation.
Therefore, suffer, yes. Be misunderstood, yes. Be shamed, yes. But do not be ashamed. For the joy set before you, take up your cross, follow Jesus, be shamed and despise the shame!” -- John Piper

Thanks, Libby! I'm so happy

I like this, Maddie. Outside,

I like this, Maddie.

Outside, it’s
You, you, you,
But I can’t tell
How much I think
Me, me, me.

So relatable and true. This is absolutely lovely, dear. I was hoping you'd post today. :) well done.

My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.
‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭55:8-9‬

Haha aww, thanks, Damaris!

Haha aww, thanks, Damaris!
