Feeding the Beast in Me
"Do not think of yourself more highly than you ought..."
He often warned, "The road to hell is paved with good intentions."
And she meant well; but her gift feeds the beast in me.
A beautiful porcelain keepsake for hanging: "Jesus Loves You...But I'm His Favorite!"
It unsettles me because I've often acted not just thought that way.
If it were not a struggle still, would it bother me so much?
The beast must be starved; so it must go.
Just a jest?
Yet, to me, no laughing matter.
My sanity if not soul sways in the balance.
It would have been better if they had come calling with condemnation: "Expecting much more, you've disappointed us."
That's not funny either.
Just closer to the truth.
He always assured, "The road to heaven is paved with..."
"The difference between us is I know I'm a hypocrite."
Blessings and Love!
