Who is "Me" - Poem

You ever have those days where it feels your mind is a complete muddle? Where you feel like everything is going wrong, even though it isn't? You can't understand you're own thoughts and you wonder what is wrong with you. In times like these I am so grateful that I don't have to say the right words or even understand my own thoughts for the Lord to know me and understand my needs. Sometimes when we are at our lowest, the indescribable awesomeness of God becomes so much clearer.

Who is "Me"
By BushMaid

Who am I? I ask to myself.
This person: who is she?
The one who stares out from the glass,
I ask it: who is "me"?

What person understands my ways;
Can gaze into my mind?
Where thoughts are tied in crazy knots
Difficult to unwind.

Who sees my imagination,
Its puzzles help to solve?
The constant stream of sights and sounds
Continually revolve.

Complexities my nature holds,
Its ways I can't discern.
My flitting thoughts, my beating heart,
Not even I can learn.

Oh God! How well you know my soul!
You feel my every pain;
From raw emotions, blissful joy,
To breaking down again.

For when I do not understand
The things inside my heart;
When it's so hard to find the words
In prayer to you impart,

You see into my tangled mind,
You touch me with Your hand.
You understand my every thought
As countless as the sand.

I gaze into this face of mine
Whose thoughts I can't quite see.
I trust in God to shine His light:
His light on who is "Me".


"For God has not given me the spirit of fear: but of power, of love, and of a sound mind."
- 2 Timothy 1:7

  1. An excellent poem--one of your best--with a message that is true for everyone.

    Grammar notes: "It's" in verses three and four should be "Its". "Who's" in the last verse should be "Whose".
