A poem expressing my feelings and experiences in my new job.


I started a new job today, then learned quickly how rumors are made.

I know not a soul in this brand new place, but they know me just from my face.

I learned about the things I've done, with who and how the narrative was spun.

Learning quickly who they made me to be, this is facetious to say the least,

but they know me better than I know myself.

A fire burned within me today, though I could care less what these people say.

It's not about the things they've said, but more about their lack of sense.

Don't you know there's more to life, than targeting new people and making up lies?

This second job has made me see, how cruel and immature others can be,

but I remind myself of who I am and where I came from.

My God reminded me something today, he is the light, the truth, and the way.

When I find my identity and worth through him, I don't need approval from other men.

Despite what the others might try to make up, I won't forget who I live to reflect.

It's easy to talk about and demoralize me, when no one knows me from Adam or Eve,

but I am like a city on a hill and my light will shine through.

I made a decision for myself today, despite the work obstacles I'm choosing to stay.

I don't need this job or the extra money, but I know in my heart there are people with needs.

I don't know why God brought me to this place, but I know it will all make sense if I wait.

I will put on the Armor of God today, reminding myself where there's a will there's a way,

and I know God will open doors to bring me where he wants me.
