A Perfect Picture


A Perfect Picture

I shut my eyes so I can hide from this dark and filthy place

Witnessing the screams and gunshots that I try so hard to erase

But the pain of life always reminds me that were never alone

This path I walk is being guided by a mighty God on His throne

I must murder all these thoughts that have me feeling convicted

My faith is slowly dying from all the pain that I’ve inflicted

But with one call I’ll make it right and be renewed again

Your precious blood is the pureness that I seek to wash my sin

My imperfect nature reveals my flaws that I always try to hide

Others look at me on the outside but I’m different on the inside

My flesh it fights with me daily but the Word will be my shield

Your strength will carry me and to You my spirit will yield

I know Your watching me closely from above with unseen eyes

You formed my heart of gold and drew out all the boundary lines

And when I fail to seek Your ways you always seem to show

How close you really are and fill me with peace inside to know

Your universe is so beautiful with all the stars you set in place

Worlds beyond our imagination live within the depths of space

To picture such a perfect being is beyond our comprehension

But you reveal pieces of You throughout this Earth’s dimension

Brett Fletcher

In science one tries to tell people, in such a way as to be understood by everyone, something that no one ever knew before. But in poetry, it's the exact opposite.

Franz Kafka (1883-1924) Czech writer.
