Imperfect.I was sitting today in church, listening to people singImperfect.4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
At the surface it seems beautiful, without a slip or fall
But an observant heart can see
flaws in the melody
Every flat or sharp
Missed Cues, lost words
Such imperfect songs for such a perfect Lord!
I sit in my room alone, sinking in my thoughts
At the surface I seem wonderful, without a care or fear
But within my heart I see
flaws in my melody
Every doubt or smirk
Missed cues, lost words
I throw my head in my hands, loathing one like me
Such an imperfect life for such a perfect Lord!
"Why do you call for us to sing?"
I cried out to my God
"When our pitch is often off, and the words are full of doubt?"
"Why do you want such imperfect songs for such a perfect God?"
God just smiled
He pulled me close to him and simply said:
"Because it's yours."
