Beauty

A Poem by Apollos
"

What lies inside.

"

Beauty is what You say resides inside.
Humanity compromised by the lie that pride is the apple of their eye.
Satan waitin’ for the demise for a people feeling penalized.
Religious deprivation of a once holy nation.

Joseph sold into slavery and then accused of rapin’.
Who told them they were naked?
Who sedated King David?
Who laid with Leah?

Who am I to classify myself as having the right foundation?
Why oppose the accusations?
When Your breathe gets snuffed out what’s the point of resuscitation?
What happens when I run out of reasons to try?

You are Truth and I’m Your guy.
I fly high when I trust what’s deep inside.
Sin paralyzed when I reveal the freedom that sometimes hides.
Purified by Your blood that cries out I’m believing lies.

Author's Note

Apollos
I often view my soul as ugly due to all the imperfections I perceive. This is my purification story.
