Poem: Staring Back at Me

Gazing upon my human reflection

I do not recognize “me”

Instead, staring back, I see

Power, Strength, Beauty, Purity

Glory!

 

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

Glory!
