Stubborn Lies

A long time ago--or at least a lot of conversations ago--someone asked me to write a poem for them. I can write poems on demand, but they usually come out pretty generic. I like to write when the spirit hits me. Well, my friend, the spirit finally hit me to write one about you. Yes I know the difference between for and about, but the spirit of writing did not. (Good thing multiple people have asked me to write a poem for them...)

Stubborn Lies

Stubborn is my middle name:
I was born this way
   --I'm not always a fan of change
And I keep saying no,
Just because I can.
Yeah, I know its true:
It's right in front of me,
I'd be a fool if I didn't see you...
   --I can't lie to myself
I wouldn't admit to it.
I'll let you think what you want
And if you can't see through me
We'll just let it be.

Author Image Author Image I love reading the Word of God. With prayer God's Word reveals so much: from comfort to temperance, from perspective to affirmation. Digging into the depths of the Word, cross-referencing history, language and time differences, is a passion of mine. In March of 2015 I decided to go back through the Bible doing an in depth study on each section I read. Eventually I decided to share my journal of notes as I partake in this journey. I hope you are blessed by God and inspired to pursue a deeper relationship with Him. I love reading and learning about God, nature, and science. I am interested in how it all connects. The Creator's fingerprints are all over his creation. We can learn so much about Him and how we came to be by exploring the world around us. Join me as I explore the world and draw closer to the One who created it all.
