You Are Who I Need

Dawn's Strength
Dawn's Strength II_edited.jpg

I lay my sashes down

One by one at Your feet

All the letters and titles

That make me feel unique

The shoes, the jeans, that hat I don


Things that obscure my internal physique

I wipe away the residue of the day

Nude lipstick, a frown

Dark mascara, that crown

Broken, bruised and exposed


I hand over the keys to my home

My car, my heart, my life, and I weep

For You, Jesus are the only One


Who knows what I truly need.
