My Verse

Isaiah 43:1

"But now, thus says the Lord, your Creator, O Jacob, and He who formed you, O Isreal, "Do not fear, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name; you are Mine!"

On The Outside Looking In

Little girl
Hair all in bows,
Looking through
A toy store window.

Sees happy children
Playing inside.
Sees happy children
Laughing through smiles.

Always looking in
Always wanting to take part.
The door seems to be locked
Breaking her fragile heart.
Does something better
Await down the road?
Is there something more precious
She's waiting to behold?

this is beautiful. I feel this way (not like a little girl) but why can't I join in? Why don't I have the toys (talents)? Its like the game show lets make a deal, 3 doors to choose. Why does every door I choose have a donkey and the Wha, Wha, Wha sound.

I'm thinking I don't like the line about the door being locked and breaking her heart. Seems cheesy. Needs something deeper.
