Five Minute Friday - Nothing

OH, Friday, My favorite time of the week.  Lisa Jo's is the place where once a week we take the chance to just write, and not worry if it’s just right or not.
For five minutes flat.
Here’s how the game works: you simply stop, drop and write. Set your words free. Don’t edit them, don’t fret over them, don’t try to make them perfect.
Come take the Five Minute Friday challenge.
1. Write for only five minutes.
2. Link back over at Lisa Jo's and invite others to play along.
3. Go high five the word artist who linked up before you with an awesome comment.
It’s liberating; give it a a try and see.
OK, are you ready? Give me your best five minutes for the prompt:

Nothing….



START

Nothing
by Patricia A. Pitterle

I am not nothing and I know it,
Though it's sometimes hard to see.
I've been taught that there is value
In blessings He has given me.

I am a child of Heavenly Father
And my spirit is divine.
I seek to follow in His ways
By doing good and being kind.

I see my faults so clearly
All the darkness, all the sin.
I want to cast them all aside,
Open my heart and let Him in.

I can't seem to find perfection
No matter how I try,
I can't erase what has been done,
Though I wish and hope and cry.

And now, at last, I come to Him
With tears upon my face.
He takes my hand, walks with me
And heals my past disgrace.

I am not nothing, with Him by my side,
He fills my heart with peace.
He teaches me that I have worth
His love will never cease.

I am not nothing, for I know I'm His,
Someday my eyes will see His face.
The past mistakes that I have made
Become as nothing, through His grace.

Stop

Ok, now it is your turn.  What few words can you write in your own five minutes?
Don't forget to come back over to Lisa Jo's and link up with the rest of us so that we can see them.
