Shattered Glass

It’s been awhile since I put pen and paper to play, or is it fingers and keypad. A lot has happened, a lot has remained the same, but all in all, God has been working.


Shattered glass looks pretty from afar,

What with the sun’s rays falling on it making it glow like some precious stone,
From afar it almost seems to have a perfect, systematic arrangement
And you just wanna touch it and let your hand gloss over it,
It lets you have an illusion of what really exists
And you cannot help but wonder at the depth of its beauty

Shattered glass sure does look pretty from afar
We almost forget that at the end of the day it is glass
That our fragile feet were not meant to walk upon it
Neither were our smooth hands made to grab hold of it
But still, like stubborn children we just want to run and touch
Maybe walk on it and if lucky grab some for keeps
We forget that shattered glass is glass and it is meant to cut
The optical illusion from the sun’s rays does nothing to prevent that fact
Shattered glass will cut even the most experienced of us
Like mad men we chase after the wind when we run after worldly things
Temporary stuff that have no eternal perspective to boot
All because like shattered glass they seemed like the real deal
But just like shattered glass, they look pretty from afar
But when touched, they cut oh so deep
Let not your eyes be fooled, nothing will ever satisfy
To identify shattered glass keep your eyes on Him who illuminates
Trust on His promises and sweep away the shattered glass before they start cutting.

“If then you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, not on things that are on earth. For you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God.”

Read the whole chapter

1 John 5:21
“Little children, keep yourselves from idols.”


Grace & Peace
