Seen & Heard (A Poetic Expression)


It is said that humans have a deep desire to be seen & heard

Paradoxically, we cover up our nakedness after we became dead

So, is vulnerability a weakness or a strength?

Because I struggle to live its full length

I feel that my experience of betrayal makes it hard to trust 

That when I open up to you, your sword will not thrust

No matter how trivial, it is a great responsibility to see another bare

Because, you never know when you are the last one to really care

So, true love does not keep a record of wrong, it covers a multitude of sin

God is the only one who truly has the ability to put its memory in a nonrecycle bin

To truly love another, we must become like the One who personifies it

Until then, we risk the insincerity of selfish love shred another to bits

Knoweth the difference between the Pharisees & the few who came to Jesus?

Some determined to be sincere about their religious excess

Others were skeletons in a closet, Jesus called them whitewashed tombs

I'm not sure they knew that one had to be born from multiple wombs

Every quest in us seeking to ask of what is yet unknown

Is a humble heart crying and yearning to be known

No man knows the origin & destiny of the wind's direction

Born of the Spirit is the beginning of discovering your question

Man's sin led to the discovery of his shameful nudity

Before then, God's glory was his estate until Adam's unfunny levity

We have yet again been clothed with glory & honour

To be bare before another without pretense & shame should not be sour

Our scramble for fig leaves to cover up

Only keeps us away from God's true righteousness, a level up

Come as you are to Him, talk to one of His representatives 

His love through another will clothe us so we can have incentives
