I AM THE BELOVED – [Poem]

i am the beloved

 

I AM THE BELOVED

You whispered lies to my vulnerable heart.

I know now.

I reject you.

 

I AM THE BELOVED.

You feigned friendship to destroy me.

I see you.

I am leaving.

 

I AM THE BELOVED.

You overshadowed my emotions with superficial care and concern only to abandon me.

I denounce you.

I am not yours.

 

I AM THE BELOVED.

You tried to sell me your poisonous dirt fashioned as sweet-smelling raisin cakes.

I spit you out of my mouth.

I rebuke you.

 

I AM THE BELOVED.

You stole from me.

You are a thief.

I denounce you.

 

I AM THE BELOVED.

 

I am me:  the Beloved;

the Died for;

the Flock;

the Prized.

the Redeemed;

the Saved;

the Kept.

I.am.not.trash.

 

I am…the BELOVED!
