From the Perspective of Dust

 

A little backstory on today’s poetic offering. I had a conversation on the phone with my nephew Todd as I prepared dinner last night. He has been through some upheaval, but I am grateful to know the Lord has taken hold of him.

As I spoke with him, I recalled my early days of seeking God, and trying to follow the way of truth. Trying to bumble around this new life I felt within. Trying to figure out the church and church people with all the confusing mixed messages. Trying to understand scripture and what it had to do with me.

Or more specifically, learning about the One who called Himself, in John 14:6  THE Way, THE Truth, and THE Life (emphasis mine). The One who didn’t mince words, leave room for doubt, or room to accept multiple ways. The one who cared not whether what he said would win him favor with the religious elite or the politically inclined.  More

clouded  my path. More

Dear Pillar of Society,

 

All of your reasons don’t matter.

Your staring, judgmental eyes burning

holes through my choices

leave me without doubt.

Pullback

 

 

 

 

We are inextricably linked,

but you cannot see clearly,

and I am lost

 

at risk that I might also lose sight

of you…have already.

 

I feel my light  fading,

is it fading?
