Shattering the Trick Mirror

If the world ends tomorrow,
I want you to know:
I see you,
I know exactly who you are--
     You never fooled me.
Behind that smile
And cleverly crafted stance...
I heard the words
     You tried to hide;
I painted the picture
     You didn't want me to see.

Such a waste of energy, hoarded
In this mask you wear--
That innocent veil meant to conceal,
But it's too gaudy to confuse these eyes.
I recognize every story, every lie
     You try to entertain
Like a storyteller for children
Naïve and unaware
But I saw the message
     You wouldn't articulate
And I connected the dots
     You thought you could scramble.

So if I never get the chance
To hold an unbiased mirror to your face
See it crack and shatter your façade,
I have to admit
     You tried too hard
Fooled yourself in arrogance,
Got lost in some ignorant fantasy,
And forgot to cover your tracks...
I always knew I was the one
      You wanted to make blind
But know, I see you even if
      You cannot see me.

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.
