The Apostle Paul tells us to be strong in the inner man.

Brother Paul, do you mean, thereís more to me than what you see?
Yes! This earth suit that I gladly wear, has me inside, I live in here.
I have two things to be about, to keep me strong within, without;
I must have food and water thatís clean, and a path to discard
the polluting obscene. God has provided it all for me and for us all indeed, our bodies operate in health in like manner, functionally.

It is also true for me, for you, that our inside man is sustained
by food, and water that is clean, and the path to discard the polluting
obscene. The food that we eat is our daily bread, found in the Word of God.
Our water comes from the Spiritís breath revealing to us our sin,
Who reminds us of the path to discard the filth that has formed within;
Who calls us to confession time, where we admit the wrongs weíve done,
and have the filth all cleansed away by the blood of the Fatherís Son.

I am a being that you do not see, and yet you know me well,
for you and I are just alike, on the inside and the out as well. We are formed by God, The Father, Who loves diversity, and so He gave us different
earth suits, all made from the same ole stuff, and placed us here
upon the earth to go though some things that are rough to make our flesh deny itself, yet to grow increasingly strong by the ME of each of us who in this suit resides,
the real ME, the life that lives inside this body that you see.

I love my flesh and want it well, yet well it cannot be, unless the Me
who lives within is healthy, well fed, and free of sin.

Be strong in the inner man.

I really like the term "earth suit." The idea here is good, to show what is seen and unseen. I kind of expected there to be more humor because of the term "earth suit." If you revise, maybe you could make it more like a direct conversation with Brother Paul with other humorous statements?!

I found this to be entertainingly unique and creative. Good message also!

This piece has such great rythm. And I really like the symbolism you used. Great title too!

A great reminder of what it means to have a strong inner man.
