Like me

Wanting to be liked
In the words that I write.
From pain etched in the heart, my like is a start
of a journey I hope you will take
Needy deep in prose
The con is the thorn
Needling the rose
Pretending to place
Your prose with my praise
Hiding the stats response
I like you but I don’t
I just want to be noticed
And liked by your thumb
On the icon that makes me feel warm

This blog is part of a wider collection to show the journey that would eventually lead me to the cross of Jesus Christ, my personal redemption, and my journey of faith afterwards. If you would like to know more of my story, please click on my “About” page and take it from there.

Alternatively, you can visit the Media Links page and see a short visit done by BBC Radio Scotland for an interview I did there.
