Through Another's Eyes {poem}



How I wish I could see myself through others’ eyes
What do they think of when I pass them by?
Do they see a difference in me
Or just another average person do they see?
When others care are they doing it from their heart
Or is it just because they wanted something from the very start?
Do they like me just for who I am
Or do they just want me to help accomplish their plan?
Am I only wanted when nobody else is around to talk to?
Or do they see me and like the things I do?
Do they like who I really am
Or do they just appear to be friendly and turn around and condemn?
Lord, when I get all caught up in others’ view of me,
Remind me of all the things most people fail to see.
They only look at what I do and hold a grudge
They see an outer appearance and falsely judge
They don’t take the time to get to know the inner me
The true inner self that You only can see
Nobody else knows me like You do
You have seen all that I have gone through
You understand how I feel and love me no matter the strange things I do
Thanks for always being there even when I didn’t go to you
You listened to my heart when my day went askew
Keep my mind focused only on what You think of me
And help all these worries and expectations be set free
Others can judge all they like with everything I have done
But You and I know what is in my heart and You see my true reason

  7. Your poem is very beautiful and its something I can relate to. I always wonder what people think of me and through their eyes who do they see. I try to be an example to everyone around me with my relationship with Christ, the only thing I really should focus on OS how God sees me. Thank you for posting it. If you have any time would you look at my blog waitingforbeloved.blogspot.com
