It is
hidden in the Bible
in plain sight
you just seek
to find

But what is it
you
seek

Peace,
Redemption
Love
the answers
to lifeís mysteries

Is there a purpose
to existence
Do we actually live
in a framework of
our choosing and Godís
will
Is there really
life after
death

What of
the angel
that stirs the
water
and who
sinned that the
man was born
blind
and
He whom
the Lord
loved
was

Mysteries hidden

Or not

We
seek
to find

And when we find
our soul
leaps in joy
and recognition of
Godís truth

We live short lives
like the butterfly
in
timeless
eternity
and in the process
we find
if we
truly
seek

Godís wisdom
understanding
and love
that is not hidden
but in
plain sight
all around us in
life
and it is
an
epiphany
when
Christ
within you
leaps in joy
and happiness
with you
when that which
was hidden
is seen
and understood
by you
with Him
and the
Father

All you have to
do
is seek
and find
together
with---HIM

So much in this piece. The super-short lines are very, very effective. Very well done.
