Shallow Sight - Poem by Solomon Sunday

Shallow Sight


Written down from history
Ancestral landmark we thread
Heavenly reward it produce
Nothing like is kind
We live in it
We walk in it
And have our being in it

Our eyes
Shallow in seeing
But our faith enhance our sight
Beyond our horizon
What we see
Depend on where we stand
Where we stand
Shows us something to see
But sometimes where we stand
Cannot show us what we need to see
And what we see
Will not actually depend on where we stand

When we see with our eyes
We feel we have seen well
When we see with our faith
We feel we have not seen well
But sometimes
What we see with our eyes is actually not real
And what we see with our faith is actually real

What we see
We feel that’s what we are suppose to see
What we don’t see
We feel its not needful for us to see
But sometimes what we see is actually not what we are expected to see alone
And what we don’t see is what we should look beyond to see

The secret of seeing
Is to use the eyes of those who have seen
To see what you have not been able to see

What we know and believe
We feel its true
What we don’t know and believe
We feel its not true
But sometimes what we know and believe
Is actually not true
And what we don’t know and believe
Is actually true

What we see we feel its there
What we cant see we feel its not there
But sometimes what we see is actually not there
And what we don’t see is actually there

The best way to see is to see through our faith

With our Faith
We see what God want us to see
We hear what God want us to hear
And believe what God want us to hear

    It is hard but it is the truth; faith is the answer! Nice (Report) Reply

    Faith is not the answer. Indeed, it is part of the problem. Rational and compassionate thought will always be more effective and logical. Thanks, Solomon (Report) Reply
