    Sitting in church, surrounded by plenty of beautiful black folks
    big hats, black slacks, babies babbling and children busy chit-chat-ting
    ushers on their post to monitor, and help host
    choir members dressed in their robes, singing from deep within their souls
    pastor preaching the word laid upon his heart
    while members sit and search their hearts
    whats lies with a person, is invisible to the human eye.
    yet God sees past all of our dressed up Sunday smiles.
    but we fear what one might think if we allow the real person to appear.

    --be real and be healed, be true and be you
    ---he knows our hearts
    ----and to live that way will be self sufficient for you!

    What an honest portrait of ourselves, as seen through divine eyes.
