Layers

Your words are layers of insecurity:

Stupid.  Foolish.  Fat.  Spoiled.

Every insult buries me within myself,

Every word kills me.

Your praises are freeing me of insecurity:

Smart.  Favored.  Fabulous. Special.

Every encouraging word brings me out of myself.

Every true word saves me.

I’ll stay in these phrases forever.

Every encouragement is freeing,

Every judgment is condemning.
