Six Word Friday–Surrender

Go ahead, give it up, that
Thing that holds you tightly bound.
The thing that steals your joy.
The oppression that would squash you.
Is it someone else’s bad or
Overbearing attitude? Is it your own?

Lack of trust? Heaviness of heart?
Wrongs you or others have done?
Surrender and lay aside every negative
Thought, feeling, emotion. Guilt or unbelief.
Shake free of those heavy bands.
Raise your arms high and praise.

    • Excellent! Thanks for sharing your thoughts on it. Hope you have a great weekend, Alita. That’s such a pretty name, I’ve not heard it before.

  1. Excellent Writing. I love everything about this poem; the words, the thought and the picture you added also.
    “Surrender and lay aside every negative
    Thought, feeling, emotion. Guilt or unbelief.”- this part is my favorite. It’s so meaningful. Great job. :)

  2. Beautiful poem! Especially love the last line…reminds me of how I feel during the worship songs at church.

    (The fact I’m reading your Friday post on Sunday is probably not a good sign for how my week will begin :))

Please share your thoughts.
