    The blasphemous ones
    That rise from a profane world
    That can only be expressed
    Four letters at a time

    I can read your words
    For I am not called to be squeamish
    I am called to be holy

    I can read your words
    Because holiness is not a dour sniff
    Or an exceptionally long list
    Of things I don't do

    Holiness is a love
    That you bet' not mess with
    Holiness is understanding
    And actions that go beyond
    What is merely required and convenient

    I can read your words
    Because holiness does not look on sin
    Holiness does not touch sin
    Holiness became sin
    And nailed it to a cross

    You can look upon the words without becoming them, deep flow, keep them coming.

    I'm so glad this touched you guys. There's nothing like touching and being felt. Luv the luv you're giving. And your scribes are wonderful too.

    loved it...
    thought provoking
    and so true...
    especially the way
    you scribed the concept
    of holiness...
    nice work
