The Beauty of Me

My glory is majestic
My power is unmatched
Bow in my presence
The splendor of me

Conceit you say?
No, it’s truth
I may be mortal
Albeit better than you

Say my name with respect
Utter of my doings with care
Hold me in honor
The reverence of me

Conceit some suggest?
I definitely disagree
I’m only human
Although worth more than thee

Behold me and become green
Gaze upon me and see red
I am stunning and gorgeous
The beauty of me

Conceit they propose?
It’s only a fact
I live among the mortals
Being much greater than all

…A Haiku
sunlight from above
waves of beauty reflect
leaves fade instantly
Inspiration: Poem demonstrating duality of life’s experiences. Sunlight can cause beauty to show on waters, while cause leaves to fade and eventually dry out. So, in life, one event can cause one person joy and another, sorrow. Based upon “Romans 11:22 – Behold therefore the goodness and severity of God.”

New hopes and dreams come as ocean waves.
What will the day bring, I’ll never know.
But the horizon in view brings peace and hope.
