Favorite Quote:
she was a decaying flower that once bloomed beautiful.


I screamed Your name, mad and ashamed.
My heart closed to everything I knew.
Caught up in my pain, I let go of who I was.
Bitterness crept up and consumed me.
I blamed You.
Meanwhile, You took my place.
Betrayed and killed for me.
Yet still it was Your fault.
As time spun on, I inflicted harm to myself.
I attempted to grab your attention.
Pointless actions, I already had it.
I tried to destroy Your creation.
Blind to my beauty.
Never again will my eyes be covered.
For now I will trust in You.
I give You my heart.

I wrote this about my ongoing journey through depression, anxiety, self-harm, and my eating disorder and how it effected my faith.
