Poetry Sundays: Take me as I am



Take me as I am
Take me as I am
Take me as I am in this world
Take me as I am in your arms and surround my wounded soul
Take me as I am in your refuge as a lost orphan seeking to be made whole
Take me as I am for I have been labelled and made to fulfill no useful role
Take me as I am in your presence as the one who came to you isolated and in need
Take me as I am and keep me away from the hand of wickedness and selfless greed
Take me as I am as if I were the last human on Earth
Take me as I am as if I’m a newly bred toddler who cannot rely on his own protection for his world is surrounded by un-understood formations, gigantic figures of un-identified faces and objects waiting to destroy me as if I was an enemy they had been waiting to see

Take me as I am and make your shoulder my pillar of strength
Your heart my blanket of warmth and your smile my fresh drink of water on a summers day
Take me as I am and label me “I” for I cannot be you
I cannot be who you expect me to be for I abide with my own destiny
Take me as I am as I have come to you for safety

Take me as I am for I’m seen as a lost fish wondering the wealthy trenches of land seeking for water yet I cannot identify I’m being scattered on the realms of a desert

Take me as I am for I’m seen as a bird walking on the sea with great expectancy yet I’m providing nothing
Take me as I am for the world has pointed me away and cast me into outer darkness and left my feelings of love floating in a bottle as I role away in emptiness
Pushed away as if I were born of an non familiar presence

Take me as I am as I come to you being what you see
Take me as I am for I come to you with no hidden clauses for my world has been turned inside out leaving no space for hidden secrets and inner feelings defining the possibilities of me coming to you with no hidden presence
Take me as I am for I have been chased out into this world and cast into isolated buildings of sorrow with those viewed to be of my kind, The unable, The liabilities and those who will not face the dawn of possibilities for they see me as an incomplete being who gives others responsibilities

Take me as I am for no one has seen my pain
Take me as I am for critics have laughed at me in vain
Take me as I am for no one has smelt the fuse of my sorrow
Take me as I am for some hope to see the end of me before tomorrow

Take me as I am knowing those who cast me into darkness it shall be turned to eternal light

And their ways shall be forgiven before my sight whether it be day or night but I believe my existence is my right

Take me as I am for I come to you with inner confidence and wisdom
Knowing I belong in a denomination of a great kingdom
Hoping that one day I’ll walk out this wheelchair and smell freedom, Heed my cry

Take me as I am for I am the voice of the lost seeking to be found
The voice of the disabled seeking to be heard
The voice of the isolated seeking to be discovered
Take me as I am and label me “I” for I cannot be you.
