Hypocrisy

You looked me in the eye,
And lamented me for straightening my hair;
You rattled off history lesson
     after history lesson
          after history lesson
On oppression and assimilation.
Then you died your hair blonde...

You looked me in the eye,
Complained of my attire--
You asserted that I have conformed
     into society's definition of beauty
          into society's standard of femininity
And I should rebel against sexism.
But your face is overdone in makeup...

You looked me in the eye,
Told me I was heathen,
Because I don't frequent a church
     because I ask "the wrong" questions
          because I said the preacher was wrong
And I actually know how history and the Bible relate.
Then you up in the club drunk and twerking...

I look you in the eye,
And say nothing,
Because I don't want to be hypocrite.

But I say unto you, That ye resist not evil: but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also.Matthew 5:39 KJV

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.
