Life is a Glass House








Can you really see me?
Is my life not but a glass house,
an open book for your omnipotent eyes
from which I cannot hide nor run away
because you are everything
you know my path
and I trust you.

Yes, we can run but we can't hide from the Prime Creator.
Lovely prose.

I love the glasshouse metaphor.. well-played Laurie

He can see the windows to our soul.

And that last line is lovely ~

Without the last line, without the trust, the glass house would be too scary to contemplate, wouldn't it?

How true! And you've stated it all so simply. I think you're talking about how you can't hide anything from god.

love is built upon trust. and with that we lay our souls bare for our partners, life enters a glasshouse. everything done or said is open to see. only love can bring such feelings. beautiful creative poem.

I don't want to get all the believers' rage directed my way, but being a non-belliever and reading this is absolutely terrifying! Really nice write, Lauri!
