Scales


Dear people,

Often I am but blind,

And deaf 'n dumb.

Best wishes.

In faith just a child,

I see a ravine

Between you and me,

And almost everybody.

This does not render happy;

Glad I am not alone.


Good grace,

That I am just a lamb

In th'arms of my Lord.

All grace.

Beaten almost lame,

Belittled time after time.

The scales are still

On my eyes.

Therefore my sight remains;

No high arches.


Dear Lord,

My only good portion

Despite everything.

Good Lord.

In YOU is my much;

This is what I you wish.

Still on my way

To the promised land,

Along road and dune,

Till th'eternal gates;

O Lord!


<f.c.bouter>
