Misplaced

I saw the man I was supposed to be,

Noble.

Godly.

Biblical manhood at its epitome.

Although far ahead of me, it was attainable.

Practical.

Possible.

Through a God so easily accessible.

But time has shown I’m a fickle man.

Sinful.

Broken.

Selfish, as only one who is covetous can.

Caught up in vain attempts for contentment.

Satisfaction.

Gratification.

Losing self in what I thought life meant.

The man I ought to be shrouded.

Lost.

Confused.

His morals and standards clouded.

I saw the man I was supposed to be.

Prayerful.

Righteous.

Biblical manhood now misplaced by depravity.


A really personal poem. Vulnerability is part of emotive writing. How vulnerable are you willing to be in your own writing?
