You may translate the poem into your own language if you want a copy of it in its 'translated' form for yourself or for a friend you want to share it with - making sure the translation is 'accurate' though. But if you are using the 'google translator' tool I've placed on my site, you will need to check the accuracy of the translation on the google translate web page, as it may not have translated correctly - and even then you may need to copy and paste the English version line by line (as well as check the odd word for meaning and context) to get it 'more correct' as google's translate web page isn't completely accurate either. I'm sorry that it may take longer if you want this poem in your own language, but it needs to be correct because if it isn't, it will lose its meaning. Machine translators can never be as accurate as a human translator, so please do check!

When I Look Inside My Heart


In quietness I look inside my heart,
What do I really see?
Do I see an overcomer,
Or someone I don't want to be?


I see a heart so deeply grieved,
Burdened with too much to bear
I see someone that struggles each day
With the load unable to share


I see someone who has a passion
To always do what's right,
But often though, missing the mark
And failing to be Christ-like


I see someone who feels inadequate,
Unable to truly express
The God-given things that are there inside
To a world growing deaf


I see someone who feels afraid,
Hiding with faithless fear
With every day seeming an endless mission,
Confidence is just not there


I see someone who longs to be
An overcomer by God's grace,
To stand with boldness for the truth of God
Without emotions in the way


Someone longing to be used of God
In the work He has given,
To spread the message of Jesus love
And to be clothed in godly wisdom


It seems so overwhelming for me
When I look into my heart,
I know there are many things to change,
For my heart seems so dark


Yes, I have a long way to go
To become more like Christ,
But I am a work still in progress,
God's still working in my life


And maybe I will never be able
To be completely whole,
But I keep pressing on in God
With eternity as my goal


For this side of Heaven has its trials,
On this we all can be sure,
Our focus shouldn't be on what's wrong with us,
But all we can be in the Lord.
