and mirrors
distort believer’s
eyes-
too blessed
to be stressed,

life is
fine, every
thing is O.K.

Honest answers
kiss lips-
leaving
vulnerability
behind-
pride swings
high, in
these lies,
denying truth
delays healing,
disrupts
fellowship
on rocky
roads, mourn
in valleys,
sing on ‘tops-
be heard,
be real,
be honest,
in this valley,
of the shadow
of
death.
