Captured

By April 10, 2014May 4th, 2017No Comments
Infinite happiness and pleasure
Oh, joy of this kind is opposed to what my pride seeks to pervert
with deceitful desires, merely enticing all five senses
But I can’t catch this One thing I so need,
I have only to be captured
Crushed to pieces to be remolded, or
Better said: before I can live,
I must choose to be dead
To see and be seen: that’s a cheap thrill
an itch for eternity
scratching just can’t heal
Cuz my itch is more than irritation
a disease deeper than I can feel
I can feel Bartimaeus¬†saying, “Son of David, please heal!
Have mercy on me…let me see!”
And He the all-seeing eye
Gave sight to the blind, so they,
so we, could see His glory.
