Favorite Quote:
"For I know the plans I have for you declares the Lord. Plans to prosper you and not to harm you. Plans to give you hope and a future." Jeremiah 29:11

Her hand is to her mouth
She is eating away at her fears.
Chewing at her self-esteem
Her anger, lies, and mistakes.
She is consuming her loneliness.
Nibbling at her sadness, her despair and heartbreaks.
She is chewing, chewing, chewing them down
Until they stick like a lump in her throat.
She pulls her hand away-
Nails all ragged and torn-
A reflection of her soul.

this poem is about a girl who bites her nails all the time because she is worrying about all the things going wrong in her life.
