There will come a day
when looking out your windows
you find Someone looking in at you
asking for your statement of faith

and you won’t have one.
But…

taking a moment you’ll mouth at Him
“Lord!”
He’ll interrupt you with a tear
and you’ll wonder why it blurs your view. So

you’ll hold up to the glass your report
a self-service analysis for the Great Analyst:

an inflection to your reflection
a cultivation of observation
self-deception at its finest
and ironically you will be so self-assured

you fooled yourself after all…
However the Looking won’t accept it.

You’ll beat the panes that trap your humanity!
And a crack will appear
a fracture
that the Other will vapor through

to tell you They don’t know you,
all your borrowed has gone to waste,
knowledge doesn’t outweigh faith,
you’ll have to accept what you see as your

choice.
You never believed.

This is as well-written as the message is profound. So many poetic elements and so much truth. Very well done.
