I'M Made In His Image/ God Knows Best For Me (Common Measure) - Poem by Leslie Alexis
I stood in absolute wonder
Looking in the mirror
At the big nose and crooked head,
Thinking it's an error.
The stocks seemed excess in making:
I had the biggest nose seen!
The thing was truly humongous
And filled the entire screen.
The man in me then made me stray
I thought I was made corrupt
That God had some other calling
And had to end abrupt.
Then these thoughts swiftly came to me:
'I'll die last in no air,
And on treacherous mountain trails
I'll smell the coming bear'.
Then I smiled a big smile to God,
My nose had a purpose.
It is mine and, thus it's special:
Unique He has made us.
I went from feigning to smiling
I was no longer blue;
For I am made in his likeness
(He has a big nose too!)
Even if His nose is thin and straight
His will is best for me,
Thus in him I boldly rejoice
And end self scrutiny.
