Visions I Saw

A Poem By Damaris Ann // 9/20/2017

Like a bolt of lightning in the darkest of night
Let Your truth be the awakening that gives us sight
Let mercy show in glorious light
A prism of purity coupled with might
Let Your name be the sound that puts me in awe
Let me rest in You instead of visions I saw
Give me love in place of impulse to fight and claw
Let my life be Your image; pure and raw
Please help my tears to all be wiped away
Give me the grace to stand; not bend and sway
Grant peace when in troublesome fear I lay
Let me be content with doing it Your way

Wow wow wow, what a visceral

Wow wow wow, what a visceral experience reading this, Damaris! Absolutely gorgeous play with words in this one -- "a prism of purity couple with might" and "fight and claw -- pure and raw" were my favorites!! The poem definitely had a feeling of daring to it -- you continue to try new things!!! What a pleasure to read.

My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.
‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭55:8-9‬
