Reconciliation ("you are wonderful and God has made you")

Why do I do this again and again.
Hearing weakness, and twisting it
to take away humanness.

Unable to appreciate
the greatness of any soul but myself.
Contriving praise to buoy up an artificial insecurity.

My grotesque nature half-hidden
by a film of undeserved promises
Until Christ crushes contradiction.

Crawling again to remembrance
Of our irrevocable identities
Eyes refreshed to wonder.
