https://dailypost.wordpress.com/prompts/elusive/

 

Sought myself, pursued

with an unbalanced intensity,

earnestness of self-congratulation-

The more I pressed on,

the more ELUSIVE identity became,

grains of golden sand falling through my fingers.

Oddly miserable in my identity labels,

a comforting shawl made with cheesecloth.

He calls me to lay myself down, and

be lost in Him instead of the

person I rooted in the mud to be.
