Starship: A Poem

Source


Tonight I seek the wings of redemption,
To fly over the depths of my sin,
Seeking the pieces of me left drowning,
I want to be me through You again.

Seeking solace in this world has left me prone to shudder,
But You silently whisper grace within a hidden muse and mutter,
Infiltrating my mind polluted with the silent lies,
Pierce my thoughts with potent truth that cries.

Sometimes I let go of the only anchor that's real,
For a rocking storm that's full of exciting, empty appeal,
Lift my ship out of the murky waters of sin,
Be a heavy weighted influence in my life again.

Tonight I seek the wings of redemption,
To fly over the depths of my sin,
Seeking the pieces of me left drowning,
I want to be me through You again.

A bit like 'Will your anchor hold in the storms of life'

Very true, f. That could be an alternate title for this. Thank you, once again, for commenting!

Looking at the poem again: 'Pierce my thoughts with potent truth that cries'.

A memorable line.

Visible piercings can be really worthwhile and fashionable.

But there is a far deeper piercing of the truth which inwardly affects one's whole thinking and spiritual life.

Blessings.

Amen, friend.

At different levels, it's good to go for both varieties, I guess ... :)

Blessings.

Yes, but of course, more the latter then the former.

Oh of course, yes. 'Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, in all wisdom.' The dwelling there that Paul has in view is like the piercing of truth that you speak of. There is a permanence to it (there's that word again!)

Of course, ppl can in theory do without any outward piercings at all. But I'm not sure than God expects us to do that.

Blessings.

You are right, my friend.

We seem to be thinking along fairly similar lines. :)

(In fact, I'm not even sure that God expects piercings to be limited to the conservative ears - whatever some conservative folk might say...; in Ezekiel 16.12, God even gives Zion a nose ring! we don't need to do that, of course, but it kind of shows how Biblical frameworks are often broader than some culturally conservative modes of thinking.)

But it's the truth of God that needs to reach us at the deepest level that a clasp from the many cool accessories doesn't reach.

Some sense, I hope ...

Blessings.

Yes, this made sense, especially the line 'But it's the truth of God...'.
