- What Matters
A greater power basks His light down on
Our life in ways indescribable,
Pieces of things that draw us in close.
We attempt to make things more beautiful.
We are drawn to symmetry, the god-like beauty
In which He is present.
He sees that,
And so do we.
We gravitate towards qualities,
Smart, humorous, cautious.
Perhaps they are qualities we already possess
Or they are qualities He wants us to become.
He draws us in close, in church,
In temple, through our religion.
We are mesmerized by His accomplishments and
Do our best to make Him proud.
We think we see Him in His light,
At His peak, in all His glory,
But we don’t.
Without a manual or some instructions,
You blindly believe.
Without a blueprint for your faith,
You believe in capital-S Something,
Something that helps you shine in an
Insurmountable number of ways.
You believe without a heaven or h*ll,
Without confirmation of your beliefs.
You see everything in its
Full potential and it echoes across your life.
Teach me how to fully depend on what I cannot see,
To appreciate His indescribable beauty and to
Relish in His creation.
