    Can you digest the truth when it faces you in the mirror?
    Speaking things you avoid or maybe deny then you try
    To be the best in life and yet what you perceive to be the
    Best actually inflicts great pain on the masses?

    I often wonder how we can say we strive for the best, want
    The best, desire to be the best and yet when the best comes
    Forward to speak the best in us we are quick to look away
    And assume that this is all some sort of horrible spiritual test;

    I cringe at the sight of those masks wearing pseudo-sanctified
    Hypocrites who bespeak of me when I walk past and talk of
    Me when I stand before them and even pray against me when
    They see my rib grasping tight to my arm in the midst of a crowd

    Wolves’ in sheep’s clothing? Please more like good cover in evil
    Veils of deceit and arrogance, green laden envy blinding them
    From the truth that hurts every time they put their minds to being
    Better than the next man when they should worry about themselves;

    Stop building cabins in your vision as your attempt to create forest
    Fires in my sight for my thoughts are clear as day and my reality is
    humbled by constant rest in God and repeat visits to the place where
    the potter meets the clay to be investigated by a supernatural scope;

    I only hope that those who seek to critique as they walk in love, walk
    In joy, walk in peace, walk in happiness while tearing down smiles,
    Tearing down dreams, tearing down hopes, tearing downs peace all
    For the sake of true AGAPE love and yet they don’t even know that

    Walking in true love means never hurting the ones around you…

    thank you. No need to ask for forgiveness. It's a lot of people who find joy in tearing down others. They live for the thrill to inflict pain. Just keep on keepin on.

    Ah! A way to start my morning with a little mental exercise. It is good to rummage through our thinking processes and see if we are using them at all and to rethink things we thought we had thought out long ago--good exercise and an epecially good exercise for a writer who is looking further than what's on the surface--Ra
