Poem: Staring Back at Me

Gazing upon my human reflection

I do not recognize “me”

Instead, staring back, I see

Power, Strength, Beauty, Purity



Eyes and face aglow, almost electric

But I know what I know – that face belongs to Him


Moses wore a veil so no one would see

YOUR presence overcoming he

But, LORD, never will I hide the fact

YOU reside inside of me like that

Your GLORY I shall not hide


It’s not a flicker, but an inferno

Burning through my flesh

Giving my eyes and heart the ability

To view everything afresh

I cry holy, Lord, holy


Staring back at me I see

Power, Strength, Beauty and Purity
