Tilling Truth’s Garden – A Christian Poem
My understanding grows like a thriving weed,
Rising taller, but smothering the seed
Of a beautiful garden of eternal truth.
I, a child in the infancy of youth,
By my feeble immaturity have become aloof,
Walked astray, carried by foolish pride.
In your ways let my soul confide,
Grant me your vision, blind my eyes
From reflecting and judging through my human lens.
Take this heart of stone and make amends,
Make it lighter than the wind
That my intellectual pride won’t weigh me down.
Chop this thistle growing in fertile ground
In the garden where the word abounds,
Till and humble this soil ready to nurture your truth.
-Poem Written by Justin Farley
