Worthless

Weeds strangle
Choke the truth
Steal water of life
Entangled roots
Seeded long ago
By careless words
And carefree lies

If I tear at them
The roots remain
The weeds grow again
Feeding on life

Help me God
To gently lift
The weeds away
From me

To reveal the truth
Of how I am
And how I want to be
Protect me from further seeds

From further weeds
And remind me
To ask You
To keep on weeding
