Poetry and Musings

For we only see dimly in the mirror
Then we shall see face to face
Now I know fully; then I shall know fully
Even as I am fully known
My only aim to finish the race…
The task of testifying to the good news of God’s grace

This mirror is dirty
The dirt is caked on there like mud
I try changing my looks to the gregarious next model but my heart is an old porcelain doll
Will I ever attract the next stud?
I won’t if my heart keeps going thud thud thud

This life is so short
The things we chase after
We are lovers of ourselves, money, disobedient to parents
We consider nothing sacred in every chapter
Where’s the love we should capture?

I will tell you this: blessed is the man who preserveres under trial
No matter your temptations are, whose number will you dial?
My days are like the evening shadow; I wither away like grass
You know our days are like a time bomb in a hourglass
Without Christ, are days are too delicate and vile
