(God’s Sonnet by Timothy J. Verret; “it’s how I cope to hope in the uncovering God is doing with and in me to be who God always intended me to be: Unique, precious and free.”)
You’re covered up by a list of mess ups.
You went for the flesh, and you got the sins.
“Who uncovers?” you ask. “Drinks my stained cups?”
The water is changed to wine in wineskins.***
I’m covered up by who they expected
me to be. I “lost” me, and I went “nuts.”
God uncovered me who they dissected.
I’m becoming God’s Miracle from cuts.
“You’re free. Use not your freedom to cover
up for evil. God has uncovered you.”
God’s Discovery was to uncover
us from hurts and hell, free us to love New.
God uncovers who we were meant to be:
God’s Child, like Christ, unique, precious and free.
