Smoke

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

Paul was stirring
up trouble
all about town,
preaching and teaching
of One who would come
down, healing
the sick, raising

man speak,
of spirits
unseen, of
a God, so

could perceive
one willing
to die,
for such
sinful wretches,
as you,

Love’s cost

I gladly pay,
for each wonder-

sorrow borne,
cheerfully, I
mourn-
to have
known,
sunny days,
wily ways,
tossing
joy, sharing
pain,
treading
through,
this day,
of rain.
