Poem - Your Being

A friend's circumstances prompted me to write “Your Being”.


Your Being

Beauty shone to the world
sadness bled from the wounds
staining perfection both in and out
with relationship purgatory.
The tears are no longer wet
yet they drown you happiness.
Why must the world betray
the grace of God most treasured?

Unappreciated by a single soul
loved by the much of the world
sadly this is not enough
for the heart seeking company.
History has made its mark
on your sense of worthiness.
The biography has been set
when the years are inspected.

Yet the future is not done
as the others move to the front
replacing those who came before
dim of sight to beauty born.
I wish I could hold you up
to show them the error of their ways.
Blindness must be their failing
when they don't see your being.
