Insecurity or pursuit?

A Weaving Path Through the Wetlands

Painfully aware of all I do not know

of each mistake

of all my missing strengths

it isn’t even perfectionism

just the truth

that my brain can’t hold

all I wish it would

that my missing talents prevent

consistent excellence

like I love.

I love to excel

I love to impress

I’m most enamoured with

continuous progress

So much so that

I am regularly suprised

at how well I do perform

and how many people do

stick around and still love me

because I failed to appreciate

all I do know

all I can do

all I am

too distracted by

what isn’t me

One thought on “Insecurity or pursuit?

  1. Yet! 🙂
    Ah, our hearts. Remember your heart. The desires of your heart. Always good. We will fall short, we will sometimes be so driven to learn and grow and overcome and improve we forget to be content and thankful, But He knows our hearts. Our beautiful hearts.
