Visions I Saw

Submitted by Damaris Ann on Wed, 09/20/2017 - 04:26

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 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.
