Elusive

Elusive
The truth hides in plain sight
Invisible because you refuse to see
Lie to yourself
To avoid the image in front of you
As though denial will make it disappear...

Trade logic for tradition
Because its comfortable
And, look no further than your own lies
To keep each piece of the puzzle safely in tact
Never worry about how long it can continue
Or what wonders you've left undiscovered
Just over the horizon,
Beyond the shock and awe,
Past the guilt and embarrassment
Higher than your lies can reach
You could make it there,
If you'd just let go...

Your own words don't make sense
Even as you explain your faulty logic
the ground crumbles beneath your words
The landslide crashing everything you built
But you cloud your vision, hide behind shades
And call the brightest light known, elusive...
Elusive? An arrow blinking in your eye
Pulsing in time with your distorted rhyme,
So close you can feel its heat
Denied, for the sake of your pretense.

Quit the games. You're falling behind
Simply because the crowd hasn't figured you out,
But only a fool, fools himself...
The words are right there--blacker than night
If you'd stop smearing the ink,
Take a step back and focus,
Listen to your convoluted story
Get a grip on reality, take the blinders off
Step off the cliff, take the plunge--
You can't drown in this truth,
If you'd just take the chance....

About

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.
