Illusions (poem by me)

Life in this body
Careful how you handle it
Seems to be long and sturdy
Appears as concrete
Strong, durable, tough, rugged
But is actually glass.

For the wisdom of this world is foolishness in God’s sight… —1Corinthians 3:19

A relationship
to the Lord seems virtuous
Unbeknownst to onlookers
It’s a buoy at sea
Realized only by those
who swim in deeper waters.

As we look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen. For the things that are seen are transient, but the things that are unseen are eternal. —2Corinthians 4:18
