Absolute Perfection

I raised my eyebrows as disappointment after disappointment washed over me.

I expected perfection and I expected totality.

But my eyes failed to see, so I acted rashly:

With shoulders slumped in defeat,

My foot was on the lead,

What’s the point? It was just a front.

So why should I? When they’re mostly lies.

But then I realized I have forgotten to look unto You,

instead I looked into what others do.

Again, I focused on the wrong prize. And so I found it hard to cry.

But today as I sang, I felt and I cried.

Because what I saw, when I finally looked,

was the most wonderful, beautiful, and glorious Father,

eternally matchless, loving me unconditionally, irrevocably.

He is the absolute perfection that undermines all imperfections.
