Apparition

It is not necessarily easy to have a positive experience of a God
who is kind and loving, when a child received a negative parental
role model.
Sometimes we cannot see beyond the shroud we perceived, but
in time we are given the ability to choose between an absent
God to one who never leaves us!

I fashioned as a child an image of a body covered
with a shroud
No ears to hear no eyes to see no mouth to
speak
The robe he wore was old and torn with rips and
tears
And if you could see his hair it was long and
untidy
He shuffled with his feet whispering
defeat
He appeared at night in dreams causing
duress
That only a child can dream receiving little
rest
As I grew up this visitor of the past came less
often
As time filtered through my mind this was
just
an apparition of something less divine!
